Targeting Racist Royal Family
Targeting Racist Royal Family
I know, I know. We threw off the yoke of the British monarchy 246 years ago. We don’t bow to them. But, but, but we shouldn’t want to see anyone treated badly in their homes or here in ours. Since Harry and Meghan aka the Sussexes accused the British Royal Family (BRF) of questioning what color baby Archie would be, the BRF has been accused of being racist. Racist has become the go-to, catch-all slur for the wokerati. In London, across the pond, and here in Boston, the Royals have become targets of activists looking to gain their 15 minutes of Social Media fame. Let’s take a look at these two incidents and what they tell us about the activists.
The Lady Susan Hussey Incident
Lady Susan Hussey is in her 80’s and she is one of Prince William’s godmothers. She was a Lady-in-Waiting to the late Queen Elizabeth II and has worked for the BRF since the 1960’s. Mrs. Hussey has been accused of being a racist by a charity organizer. From Woman & Home, here is a description of the event:
On November 30, the Queen consort, Camilla, hosted a Violence Against Women and Girls reception at Buckingham Palace.
Camilla was joined by Sophie Wessex, the First Lady of Ukraine, the First Lady of Sierra Leone, Queen Mathilde of Belgium, Queen Rania of Jordan, and the Crown Princess Mary of Denmark for this incredibly important event.
Among the guests was Ngozi Fulani, of Sistah Space, Britain’s leading domestic abuse charity for Black women. Lady Susan Hussey was among members of staff at the royal engagement and spoke with the charity leader.
Ngozi revealed in a tweet after the event that she was asked racially charged questions by the former lady-in-waiting as she questioned where exactly she came from and what her ‘nationality’ was.
As a Southerner, whenever I travel to another Southern city and meet new people, I am often asked where I am from and who are my people. Often this leads to friends or relations in common. It is deemed racially insensitive now.
The BBC has, helpfully, reprinted the entire conversation between Lady Hussy and Ngozi Fulani, as per Miss Fulani:
Lady SH: Where are you from?
Me: Sistah Space.
SH: No, where do you come from?
Me: We’re based in Hackney.
SH: No, what part of Africa are you from?
Me: I don’t know, they didn’t leave any records.
SH: Well, you must know where you’re from, I spent time in France. Where are you from?
Me: Here, the UK.
SH: No, but what nationality are you?
Me: I am born here and am British.
SH: No, but where do you really come from, where do your people come from?
Me: ‘My people’, lady, what is this?
SH: Oh I can see I am going to have a challenge getting you to say where you’re from. When did you first come here?
Me: Lady! I am a British national, my parents came here in the 50s when…
SH: Oh, I knew we’d get there in the end, you’re Caribbean!
Me: No lady, I am of African heritage, Caribbean descent and British nationality.
SH: Oh so you’re from…
Oof! This smells of targeting to me. You can see it coming. Fulani is intentionally being rude and obtuse. But wait, there is more. Sky News Australia brought on Esther Krakue to explain all the real details:
Miss Fulani was wearing full-on African traditional dress. Asking what country or region someone is from when they are wearing a regional costume is not racist. It’s human curiosity. It came off like an interrogation because Miss Fulani was being rude and obtuse. And, she did she record that interaction because it seems very detailed and favorable to her.
Lecturing William and Kate On Colonialism
Next up for the racist charge are the Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Kate. They are in Boston for a couple of days to present five awards for his charity, Earthshot. It’s some Green thing.
While Prince and Princess were waiting to be introduced at the opening of the festivities, the Reverend Mariama White-Hammond spoke to the crowd. Mrs. White-Hammond founded the New Roots African Methodist Episcopal Church in Dorchester, Massachusetts. She is also the Chief of Environment, Energy, and Open Space for the City of Boston. Here is Yahoo on the content of her speech:
Before Prince William kicked off his first event in Boston on Wednesday, Rev. Mariama White-Hammond asked audience members gathered to see the royals at City Hall “to consider the legacy of colonialism and racism” prior to the prince taking the stage.
“The ways it has impacted people across the world and its connection, its deep connection to the degradation of land and our planet that we are all seeking to reverse,” White-Hammond, who is Boston’s chief of environment, energy and open space, said to the crowd.
“The stories lost, the species made extinct, but also the persistence of people in the face of oppression and the fundamental dignity of all of our relations,” she added.
In Conclusion: Racist
You could try to explain the history of the world over the last few thousand years and the contributions made by Western Civilization to these women, but you would just be called racist. They want to signal their virtue, inflame the woke crowd and get one over on the British Royal Family. They think they owned the BRF, but the women only showed us who THEY are.
