and better than other human beings. People have to bow to them. They have special ďblood.Ē She will have a fake title made up by people who think they are better than their fellow human beings.
Doesnt sound very progressive or egalitarian to me.

24. The royal family will be looking more like the people

of UK and the former empire. I like that. I like that the nasty reactions to her race are so minor that it's happening. I see it as an advance.

You seem really hipped on this whole subject of England's royal family, in a very negative way. Maybe examine why you object so much to them becoming less what you imagine you dislike so much? They're not half as important to me. I didn't even know until today that she existed or that her mother is black, PoC, whatever people prefer to call it. I just think it's nice and I was glad to hear about it.

If it's any perverse comfort to you, she's really as much white as black. It's not as if both her parents were Somali or some such. You can still despise the royal family for being appallingly wealthy (I'm with you to the point of very strongly disapproving that, but not to the point of becoming overcome with hostility) and failing to break that barrier.

I dont care what race Meghan is. She seems smart, well educated, hard working. I am wondering why it is seen as a positive that she will be joining an anachronistic bunch who think they are superior to other humans. And why people would be proud of that? And what American isnt offended by the idea of royalty? We donít like when Trump acts like he is royal.
And your comments and assumption that I am racist are highly offensive and incorrect. Go look at my history and posts before you spout such a vile thing about me.

37. You are avowedly anti-royal, or maybe just

anti- England's royal family. You seem invested to a peculiarly intense degree in negativism, using a happy story to object to anyone else feeling any friendly interest in them. I mean, really? This is a happy story for many people, as Effie says.

When you think of what bigotry is, though, how is one intense hostility that has no interest in admitting anything good different from other intense hostilities that have no interest in admitting anything good? If this hostility at royals is just an indulgence you can control, maybe pull it in?

51. Oh, cut the kid a break. 22 was still adolescent.

I just looked it up and found it was for a colonials and natives costume party, surely an invitation to bad taste enough in itself, but Nazis were a presence in Africa in the late colonial era.

And you're wrong, you know. Donald Jr. would be forgiven anything by a quarter of the country and despised for any excuse at all, or none, by another quarter.

Closer to the happy topic, I wouldn't have ever wondered if Jr. might marry a woman of color, something else PoC can be glad of. He's definitely one of humanity's duds.

so invested in them. Surprised and dismayed because I thought we got rid of that nonsense 240 years ago. Worshipping people who think they are our superiors.
So, of course, Iím anti-royal. I assumed all Americans were. I didnt know there was such a cult of personality around these moochers.
Having said that, I remember when Diana died, it was nonstop coverage for a week here in America. Then Mother Teresa died, and it was barely a blip. I thought that was pretty messed up.

Just because someone is excited for a moment (and I'm not nor have I ever been about this engagement) doesn't mean anything. Geez. You're putting too much importance on this.

For some people it's just a pleasant distraction from the torture news drips of the embarrassment that our current president makes us feel on an almost hourly basis.

I'd pretend doing so is a cult of personality too... if my bias outweighed rational thought, which would be "pretty messed up" if we think about it.

Maybe. I didn't notice because I didn't care.

I don't care much about this other than a moment of: Hmmm.. And American Divocee who went to Catholic school is marrying Prince Harry. Remember when he used to be a dick? He seems to have turned his life around.

Move on...

I won't watch the wedding, as I didn't with Diana and Charles or William and Kate.

And yes, I think the royal family is stupid. (Irish heritage. We're taught to think they suck.)

45. Brit here.

Yes, I think the comments sections of the Mail and a few other rags probably had some grumbling, but that's what they do, and some of the trolls that infest there are actually American.

Otherwise, among most British people who aren't out-and-out racists, I reckon it was a pleasurable surprise to see the queen relax a little in her body language with Michelle Obama.



(And yes, for the observant, it does look like Her Majesty is touching, if not groping, Michelle Obama's bum.)

The whole fuss was massively cooked up and exaggerated by American right-wingers, who all of a sudden became world experts on royal protocol.

It's like the Churchill bust - the entire population of the UK were supposed to be weeping into our warm beer and polishing our pitchforks. Why would we give a stuff which artwork few of us even remembered existed let alone cared anything about was being displayed in the White House? (As it ended up, there were two of them anyway, and one had never left!)

I also think Meghan is marrying down with Harry. She is smarter than he is, more articulate, harder working, more educated. But that, of course, is her choice.

These things make it more understandable why people would be happy about this.

I don't give a flying fugg except for the fact that it pisses off the racists.

67. I agree

I know that some on DU might beg to differ. The consensus from my circle is that we're excited. I don't really care for the monarchy. However, I did admire Diana and I adore her children because they dare to be different, especially Harry. For me and those that I've spoken to, it's not about love or respect for the royal family, it's about people breaking barriers, and as these barriers get broken we step closer towards equality. It's also about love despite the status quo. I wish them all the best.
