One British Breakfast TV host asked Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu if Meghan was “missing an opportunity” to teach Britain about it’s 1000s year old bigotry by not staying to continue to endure the racial abuse that they deny?
This is a brief piece written in response to the disingenuous article by one Jennie Bond in which she equates the Sussex Squad to the abhorrent sinister hate group lurking in social media and going by the name M3gxit.
Through a landscape of unprecedented hostility and sabotage from kin and country, the Sussexes have persevered and remained admirably focused on helping and highlighting the causes dearest to them. While they have seemingly stayed steadfast, It really didn’t have to be this way.
The fact that so-called journalists are ill-prepared to intelligently cover the only non-white member of the royal family is an indictment of the “journalists” and their parent networks or organizations.
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?
Could it possibly be that she has been left out to hang because she has exposed some Royals, who are also living off British taxpayers, to be inefficient and basically unproductive?
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.
