Prince Harry’s statements on racism
Harry confessed that his privileged upbringing protected him from reality and he was unaware of the magnitude of the problem. He assured that after his relationship with Meghan he understood the existence of racism.
“The unconscious bias, to my understanding, having the upbringing and education that I had, I had no idea what it was. I had no idea it existed. And then, sad as it is to say, it took me many, many years to realize it, especially after living a day or a week in my wife’s shoes, ‘” she stressed.
During the conversation with Hutchinson, he stressed that quality information can help to understand the dimension of the problem and help to find a solution.
“The solution is in quality information and not in the sensational headlines.” “Once you realize or feel a little uncomfortable, then the responsibility is to go out and educate yourself, because ignorance is no longer an excuse,” he said.
Currently, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth maintains his activism and has focused on calling for an end to structural racism in Great Breñata. He and Meghan recently launched a campaign against discrimination, xenophobia and promoting equality.
