Yes it’s well known that the UK is terrible with its black
community compared to the US....

What a shit article, basically citing tabloids and saying
“hey look at England!”.

Nah, it's a good way of exposing underbelly, overt racism.

Underbelly, overt racism as opposed to institutional racism,
which the article (an opinion piece, btw) goes into as well
(maybe you have to scroll further down for that)

I now realize you're saying she went from a rock to a hard
place. But I'm pretty sure it's worse than anyone really can
imagine.

Yeah the British tabloids excel at it, but the British
tabloids don’t represent the UK, unlike what the article
is trying to say.

"Britain’s communities of color,"... Who the fuck talks
like this? Apart from aggrieved professional victims that
work in either academia or the media, most people just want
to get along. And do get along. If this country was such a
hotbed of steaming RACISM there'd be riots. But hey, it
sells New Yorker articles and music by that closet poof

have to say I agree with Roger on this one, there is
probably some racist people who don't like her for that
reason, but by in large I think a lot of people don't like
her cos she is a drawing massive attention to herself in the
media and doesn't kotow to royal protocol, I don't care
myself this is just the vibe I get from people like my mum
who follows this crap,

I think it could genuinely be much more to do with her being
American, and seen as uncouth and vulgar rather than race

It was racist for Harry to marry Meghan in the first place
because the royal family are literally welfare queens and
Meghan becoming a welfare queen reinforces harmful canards,
myths, tropes, and stereotypes about women of color being
welfare queens (which they aren't). Also the institution of
marriage itself is extremely problematic. At least they're
raising their kid NB though

pretty special people think a country like Britain isn't
racist, maybe watch this, while turning off your
defensiveness for a second

(kinda unrelated, here's a good doc i saw the other
day, that's about the police state (Britain but more largely
applicable) and so inevitably about institutional racism)

Racism is a problem in the UK. It’s not a safe haven. What
I’m trying to say is that the tone of the article is a bit
extreme.

The thing about being lectured to by a woman with a PHD in
Racism Studies, is that she'll "prove" your sorry racist ass
is racist, and show you that you don't even know what racism
is even though you're the living embodiment of racism. White
academics love racism, love it, it's the gift that keeps on
giving. Who isn't racist? Only have white friends? Racist.
In a mixed-race relationship? Racist, must be some colonial,
slave shit role play going on. Once looked disapprovingly at
some youth dropping his fried chicken bones onto the street,
the street where you live not him? Failed to take into
account systematic racism and 2000 years of trauma - Racist.
Took a black man's job? Racist. Gave a black man a job. Just
the one? Racist.

Any (suspected) downplaying of racism just makes me hella
mad.

Saying the article is extreme is tone policing. I'd say just
look at what the article tries to get across. And don't
judge its methods: dismantling centuries of oppression and
collective gas lightning isn't easy. In the process of doing
that someone may sound harsh.

Roger Wilco: yes, that's the defensiveness. Good that you
spot it, now try to do something productive with it. Taking
in this information is a good first step.

I never downplayed racism! Are you looking for shit without
realising it? Do you think I think England is racism free?
You just jumped the gun because I stated that did I not know
England I’d get a very black and white idea of what it’s
like to live there from that article, probably written by
someone who’s never lived there.

Of course it’s full of racists, it’s a world wide
phenomenon. White nationalism is a big thing in Europe at
the moment, and England has its fair share of cunts. Since
the whole brexit thing hate crime has drastically gone up,
because many people mistake leaving the European Union with
hating forreigners and wanting to “protect our land and
heritage”. “Oh cool brexit confirms my hatred”.

Don’t take me for a fool, big. I haven’t been this
pissed off here since mo wanted to kill my family.

The author is British and wrote a book 'On Race, Identity
and Belonging.'

I guess i can understand not wanting to be read the lesson
by yankees, I'm sure it was published in the NYT for
reasons. Here I have think here about this author,
who wrote an incredible book on race and the Netherlands,
she first published it in English, in the US, because she
suspected Dutch publishers wouldn't dare to take it on. In
the Dutch publication that did get out now, she explains all
the fragility the English book in the Netherlands brought up
(I can't and don't want to talk for her, but it's akin to
the Robin DiAngelo video: people just can't think beyond the
personal. So, like, they think she wrote a scientific book
of great insight just because she was slighted some time on
the street, you know).

I guess you are knowlegable on this subject, but I thought
you attacked the article on weak grounds, so that's how I
got to fragility. That was probably the wrong conclusion.

end racism we need to exterminate whiteness
