I think the idea has just gone overboard with liberals using the term to shut down conversation.


When someone has to resort to a personal attack to discuss their position it is a sign they have lost. It is too hard to consider the other position so just have a dummy spit and change the topic.

Her dad is white like Obamas mom was white. Do they hate half of themselves? Are they ashamed of being half white? Does this mean they only have half a race card? Is the press stirring the pot again?
I wonder when people are going to join the human race and put this BS behind.

You can come up with your own answer, since you're speaking for other people..

Ya... Sure... A glaring continuity difference is just swept up as nothing..

I wonder how much more comparison would it take to show there's a difference in treatment of just the one royal...

There's been many duchess and other whom married into royal, none treated quite like this from day one.....


Path..

Is that really privilege though or is that just the reality of being a majority? No one looks China where the majority is Chinese and accuses them of Asian male privilege. No one looks at Latino countries where Hispanics are the majority everywhere in everything and accuses them of Hispanic male privilege. No one looks at African or Middle Eastern nations (except for perhaps Israel) and accuses their majorities of privilege.

No, it's only countries the left doesn't like where the majorities have some mystical racist privilege.

Indeed.

Since I already recognized and acknowledged the difference, Obviously NONE!!! Yes, there were very clear differences in how similar situations were characterized differently. But as I also clearly pointed out, there is absolutely nothing racial about any of the examples cited. So while YOU have decided that you KNOW what is REALLY in the hearts and minds of the reports -- RACISM AND ONLY RACISM -- I do not pretend to know, and have actually pointed out other reasons for any animosity. For some reason you've just swept up that glaring difference as nothing.

We aren't quibbling over the "what," but the "why."

You're (half) right. Whereas Meghan was given much deference in the beginning, Princess Diana and Fergie of York and Duchess Catherine were all mercilessly hounded, criticized and tormented by the media. Waity Katy ring a bell??? How about Duchess of Pork???

And whereas these ladies worked hard and earned the respect and popularity they now enjoy, Meghan herself squandered the respect and deference she was initially given.

In my opinion, a white male does hold some privilege in western society as they have the least likely chance to be opressed because of race or gender.

Majority people in western power are white males, so opportunity and perspective has historically favored white males. It's only recently that it has been pointed out.

I think the idea has just gone overboard with liberals using the term to shut down conversation.


To say this is so in 2020 is a flipping joke to the world. Only a Racist could possibly believe such at this point.

It has always been about the golden rule, those with the gold rule is the one practiced on society. Treat others as you would yourself is the one expected of society.

There is simple explanation for failure of each individual on this Earth. It has always been about 90% inspiration to do better and 10% perspiration. Many are not willing to do the 10% needed to improve themselves and take the easy way out. There literally are more poor white people than black but not by percentage based on per capita. All that says is the gov handouts are holding down the community taking them.

People have to take charge of their own situations and not blame others unless something real. White or black in America it hurts your very inner being to not be worth a job and some people are suffering from laziness that is curable but the Gov plantation can keep them from caring to get a job.
News flash: slavery was long gone when I was born.

They did have the Jim Crow laws and Conservative white people like my family back in the day in Tennessee voted the people in that signed those laws out of existence.

Now some of those very Congressmen and Senators of yesteryear who voted these laws OUT are being forgotten. Just so the Democrats , who ran the Jim Crow law scam against black folk remember, can say "white people are racists to this day". Well the lying dogs have been repeatedly caught with guilty hands and pornographic minds IMO. Pull on the plug as soon as possible Swamp drainers.

Did the late 'white american' Duchess's of Windsor get a better ride?

Or press coverage.........NO

There's another Duchess's forget her name (I dont exactly keep up with

titles) anyway she was on 'strictly come dancing' TV programme didn't

whinge and moan when she didn't win, didn't say the judges were racist.

Someone hasn't heard of Affirmative Action.

A white male is actually the least privileged when it comes to many employment opportunities in America.

Funny how that is never brought up...

Prince Harry took a long time to forgive the tabloids and media, he blamed them for his mothers death.

That said, he is most likely still not a huge fan, but when you have the same media outlets saying very positive things about Kate, and then extremely negative and assuming things about Meghan, how would you feel then?
What's with all the negative press about Meghan about?

I wonder how much of all that is because she is an American more than being 50% black.

She's an American B-list (at best) actress.

I am gonna go off on a whim here and say it's probably about her being American from a public opinion, but as scummy as the royals are, there might be some push on the racism side from the Royal family. There was a huge stink about how the wedding ceremonies went down, and even hesitation from Harry to even have a Royal wedding.

People always make comparisons - within families among friends in

the work place, its rarely vindictive, mostly she's the tall one, he's always

late, she's spoilt, He's the boring one that's life .....differenciating between

people, it should also be able to be said something like "not the coloured one"

inoffensively if it fits with the conversation...........NO that is not PC why?

Saying not the white one doesn't ring the same bell !!!

Imagine the circus had he hooked up with a Kardashian. I am guessing we're talking a lot of the same impetus from the press. She's being treated like a discount Kardashian.

He might have and still blame them, someone needs to tell him there

was no press around when Diana was in a car without her seat belt on

and with a driver over the alcohol limit.

That is a convenient excuse, and probably being blamed for something

deeper or underlying. Diana eventually 'stage managed the press to suit

herself.

Usually when you finally become an adult, you realise in life not every

is going to like/love you. Get over it.

All those headlines on your post are AFTER Megan started to try and control

and use her actress antics to get coverage, Prior to that the press loved her.

She is using the sympathy card........poor me!
