I Thought I Understood Racism, But I Didn’t

The Duke of Sussex has not always been a model of racial awareness, but a broad smile from his wife, who has a black mother and a white father, he spoke out about his own awakening to the lack of opportunities for people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.

The duke said that he wasn’t aware of so many of the problems and so many of the issues within the United Kingdom and also globally as well. He said he thought he did, but that he doesn’t.

But then does he know anything about deprivation as well – he’s not short of a penny or two and neither is his wife whose continually got her arm up his behind coaching him.

I’m sure that there will be a lot of posh people out there that will not agree, but Prince Harry knows nothing about deprivation or race. He went to a posh school, but what’s wrong with the local comprehensive school? Unless you believe in an exhausted education system where some children are brought up with an advantage over other children.

There’s nothing wrong with children earning their success, but saying that, people who come from great privilege or are advantaged, they frankly do need to reflect on the disadvantaged in our society.

And people like Prince Harry never speak out because the system works perfectly well for them and they have little or no interest in changing it, but there are many that work actively to preserve it.

Prince Harry should be encouraged to speak out because deprivation and race is still a battle which needs fighting, rather than freeloading around drinking champagne and shooting grouse all day, like he could have opted to do.

But he’s never been faced with the true understanding of how being impoverished works and how it negatively impacts people, but he shouldn’t be shouted down before he’s taken a few steps, just because he’s not fighting all the battles at once – he’s a novice in terms of being a campaigner for social justice.

Saying that, there is a lot of middle-class white kids that have a big brain and a healthy body and a fancy degree, many of which grew up in a stable, loving home with smart, educated parents who didn’t drink, do drugs or commit crimes or bash each other up.

However, they’re very well aware of how fortunate they are compared to many other people. You can’t help the life that you were born into, but there are people out there that will speak up for the people that are less fortunate and the biggest problem is people’s understanding of poverty and race.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
