So I had to ask myself, when did advocacy for change, wanting to use your privilege to do good, become a curse for those who have passions, purpose, drive, means, a good heart to champion those causes that, let’s face it a lot of us would turn a blind eye and look the other way, turn into a fault?
Harry and Meghan are finally fighting back with legal actions and have let the public know they are unwilling to be unjustly maligned and defamed by the British tabloid media.
To the British media, Duchess Meghan’s commercial value superseded her humanity. I would add that their prejudice against her made it easy for them to cross that line.
The specific purposes of the daily and persistent vilification of Duchess Meghan appears to be twofold. First, to convince the British public that, as a woman of color, Duchess Meghan does not belong in the royal family and second, to break her spirit.
Whether or not the British media like it, whether or not they are accepting of it, Duchess Meghan is a positive Force for Change, not just in the United Kingdom, but globally.
Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, cannot, should not, and must not conform to some traditional, stereotypical and malleable standard of behavior to assuage her critics.
Fortunately, for Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, they are a couple, not a trouple, so Ms. Vine, despite her bloated sense of self-importance and hypocrisy, does not get a say in how the Sussexes raise their child.
The couple, undeterred by the relentless attacks and driven by a real passion to make a difference, continue to use their platform to address issues that are pertinent to the lives of people in a substantive and value-based way.
The British media’s over-the-top coverage of the Duchess of Sussex’s Baby Shower intentionally omits information pertaining to this event to support their negative spin, not to mention that the cost of this event rises with each report.
