Fuming the protests in support of the worldwide cause titled ‘Black Lives Matter”, an old video clip of Meghan Markle dating back to 2012 has re-emerged recently. The actress who’s shared by a Caucasian white father and African American mother, appeared in the visual to promote an encompassing campaign on behalf of US charity, Erase The Hate.
Calling for a breakthrough momentum
The star wearing a T-shirt with the caption Unite ‘I Won’t Stand For__’ where the blank speaks for ‘Racism’ disclosed some of her personal experiences around racism. Facing the camera, Meghan confessed her feeling for the universal concern speaking, “I’m biracial – most people can’t tell what I’m mixed with and so much of my life has felt like being a fly on the wall. Some of the slurs that I’ve heard, the really offensive jokes or the names – it’s hit me in a really strong way.”
To the worldly attention
Then she revealed about what exactly triggered her to address the issue in a major jolt as she said, “A couple of years ago I heard someone call my mum the N-word so I think for me, beyond being personally affected by racism just to see the landscape of what our country is like right now, certainly the world and to want things to be better.”
The impenetrable image
Then she remarked that its all about looks to be judged by people rather than being counted on qualities. “Quite honestly your race is part of what defines you. I think what shifts things is that the world really treats you based on how you look. Certain people don’t look at me and see me as a black woman or a biracial woman.” Unfortunately, its yet conspired openly or within walls.
Later on, she went to speak about her life in Los Angeles where she confronted the orthodox nature of others while moving away from her hometown.
She further continued, “I thought that that was really isolated to those days that we were past and sadly they’re not”. Indeed, we are yet in the dark contrary to the scientific advancement where mass perceptions have hardly changed. And that stays undeniable at every stance. In fact, we have allowed it to dominate our actions in decisive carves.
Lastly, she voiced her pride for owing a mixed background as she added, “I am really proud of my heritage on both sides, I’m really proud of where I’ve come from and where I’m going but I hope that by the time I have children that people are even more open-minded to how things are changing and that having a mixed world is what it’s all about”. Lastly, the supreme race couldn’t just overcome the explicit barrier.
