But my God, it doesn’t take very long to suddenly become aware of it,” Harry said, reflecting years on from his early 20s, when the details emerged of the fancy-dress party and his calling the fellow cadet a “Paki”. 

The interview has certainly sparked new debate about race in Britain, but there is little common ground between white commentators and black voices following Harry’s assertion that racism was a “large part” of the reason why he and Meghan quit the UK for North America.

“America has a long and profoundly tragic history when it comes to racism. But they acknowledge it and they know it,” Lola Adesioye, a British commentator on race based in New York, told AFP.

“I still feel that the UK has a sort of delusion about its racial standing, and the idea that racism is not a really a thing in the UK, ‘that’s an American problem’, and that the UK is much more integrated,” she said.

  1. He is very true. A couple of decades back I also faced the same discrimination. Thank God he realized it. Let us hope not the UK youth but the global youth should be able to understand that God created human beings equal. Colour, breed, and other differences are just for recognition. True respect and high status are only for those who are God-fearing and ensure absolute justice among fellow beings.

  2. I am jovial you take pride in what you write. It makes you stand way out from many other writers that can not push high-quality content like you.Kawaii Shop
