A 'rude awakening': The message Meghan's royal saga sends to young black people in Britain

© Susannah IrelandFor many, Meghan's treatment has sent a damaging message to young British people of color, who perhaps saw her as a sign that racial prejudice might be finally ebbing away.


#####

More like 'Meghan's alleged treatment of others'.
Just because you're Black doesn't give you any special licences to, well, you know.

She never previously paid much attention to the British monarchy, but Eniola Ladapo remembers vividly how she felt watching American actress Meghan Markle become royalty.
The image of a biracial, foreign woman welcomed into the bosom of white, traditionalist Britain carried colossal symbolism for her — and even a hope that it signaled greater inclusivity and tolerance.
"The history of the royal family is built around the British Empire, so it was almost like it was coming full circle," said Ladapo, 19, who grew up in Nigeria and is now an undergraduate student at the London School of Economics.

About says it all.

Royalty is a job. You have to work. It's not a permanent fantasy holiday.
You have to wake every day 'bright eyed and bushy tailed', to speak politely to those who are serving you, to open events/buildings, plant trees, be nice to people you might not like much, smile even if not feeling well, stay strong and set an example for the People when bombs are raining down on London/the Palace.
When Hitler's bombs were raining down;
The Queen's mother:
"I'm not leaving without the King, and the King is not going anywhere"!
Tantrum-throwers are not appreciated anywhere much.

Reportedly Duchess Kate didn't take kindly to the way Meghan was allegedly speaking to/treating Kate's staff...when the two Duchesses were living in the same palace.
Then there was the 'Tiara' incident, when Meghan allegedly 'spat the dummy [pacifier]' when informed that the tiara she wanted to wear from the Queen's collection, she could not wear because it might've had unfavourable connections to Russia.

Etc, etc, etc, reportedly.
Not because she is Black.

There's a pecking order at the palace/family of royalty...last in, is not at the top, whether Black, White, Brown, Brindle, or any other colour.

Capitalism is “ unregulated”?
Science is “ denied”?
You can’t possibly be serious.

You can't possibly be reading.

He didn't say either of those.

He said those were "the wet dreams of unregulated capitalism and science denial that get you all sticky."

Seems to me that Pete and Sanders would have a lot of work and a lot to overcome to win a general election.

James Carville( the democrat who in 1992 gave us the memorable Clinton Campaign slogan:It's the ECONOMY, stupid!) in a recent interview with Vox:

We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells. It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments—talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party. . . .

Trump is still very popular at cross burnings, book burnings, and anywhere awful lawless leadership is in fashion.

Kid is working on cutting a hole in his box. Find something sharp, Kid. I’m sure it will turn out beautifully.

Trump’s budget request shows all his early casino management skills remain intact despite the many other obvious ways he has decayed over the years.

Which won't help you with me.

And your denial of the truth remains your single most distinguishing feature.

Luee - I doubt "religious purists" are a big factor in the Democratic Party.

What the hell is a “ religious purist?”

Judge to approve TMobile/Sprint merger!
200.000 more jobs!

Because that's what happens with mergers.

Not.

Quote
Wall Street analysts project that the merger will result in massive job cuts from the elimination of duplicative retail stores. When pressed on the issue at a Senate hearing, T-Mobile CEO John Legere conceded that "there'll be a rationalization of jobs in the first year" - a corporate-speak admission that the merged company plans to lay off thousands of workers.

Summary of Estimated Job Losses from Proposed Merger
Type of Work   Net Job Loss
Retail-Postpaid (T-Mobile, Sprint)   13,700
Retail-Prepaid (Boost, MetroPCS)   11,800
Headquarters   4,500
Total   30,000

T-Mobile disputes those number.
Quote
In total, New T-Mobile will have more than 11,000 additional employees on our payroll by 2024 compared to what the combined standalone companies would have!

Guess what number I don't see?

200,000 new jobs.

Got any support for your claim?

(anybody holding their breaths?)
