On Thursday, ‘Black History Month’ starts in the United Kingdom, a perfect time to pay attention to the theme of racism. According to Harry, the UK can become a better country if white people understand more about the lives of “people with a different skin color”.
“I was not aware of the many problems in the UK and around the world,” the Duke of Sussex told the newspaper. “I thought so, but it wasn’t. My relationship with Meghan, and the rude reactions she sometimes got, opened my eyes. ” He cites a white mannequin as an example. “That shows that the world is dominated by white people. We don’t suddenly think: ‘hey, it’s weird that there’s no black doll there.’ ”
Harry and Meghan have therefore drawn up a list of so-called NextGen Trailblaizers. These are young people who have made a positive contribution to the British community and inspire and motivate others to dispel prejudice. “Now is the best time to use our platform so we can start a conversation and introduce black people who have already made a big difference in their own communities to the rest of the community,” said Harry.

The Duke of Sussex also responds to the recent controversy surrounding dance group Diversity’s ‘Black Lives Matter’ act on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. The British public company Ofcom, which monitors media and television, then received more than 15,000 complaints about the performance. “I called the leader of the group and said that I loved his performance. He was shocked by those reactions. It shows how important it is that we continue to have this debate. ” Meghan also calls the global ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests wonderful, as long as they are conducted peacefully.
Finally, the couple say it’s not about “guilt” but about “learning and how we can do it better. We think it’s a very exciting time in British culture and history as well as in world culture. This is real.” a moment that we must seize and celebrate, because no one else has done that for us. ”
In an affiliate article in the Evening Standard, Harry and Meghan underline their message once again. “As long as structural racism persists, generations of young colored people will not start their lives with the same equality and opportunity as their white peers. Untapped potential will never be realized.”
In the interview, Meghan also says that the couple feels at home in Los Angeles. “Everything is going well, also with our son Archie (1). We are so happy with him. He also keeps us on our toes. ”
