I SERIOUSLY believe the majority of people in the UK are not racist. Yes, there are some, as in every society and every country around the world, and it is not just one-way traffic.
We all know, or should know, that racism is abhorrent and thank goodness most of us do. However, what is happening now is so damaging to relations between groups it is more poisonous than anything to date. In truth I did not read racist remarks about Meghan Markle in the newspapers.
I think the interview by America’s Oprah Winfrey was lightweight in that it only pursued one line of questioning, when there were many other questions to be asked. I do not believe our Royal family should be accused of racism.
My memory is of Meghan being welcomed by the British public and of the Royal family, with Charles escorting her down the aisle on her wedding day.
Where was the questioning of Meghan’s dispute with her family? The American interviewer did only half a job – she should have learnt her trade from the late Sir David Frost or Yorkshire’s very own Sir Michael Parkinson.
I do feel a line should be drawn under this unfortunate interview – where was Harry when all of this was going on?
Before the witch-hunt continues, people should take time to reflect.
