“Some [black Brits] expressed relief that Markle (whose mother is African-American) was finally out of the toxic atmosphere in which she’d been trapped. They wondered how she had stood it for so long. ‘Nobody should tolerate bullying and abusive behavior because of the color of their skin,’ Sanaa Edness, an immigrant from the Caribbean to Britain told the New York Times. Edness added that she’d experienced similar racism herself.” [inc.com]
When Meghan Markle married Harry
It made the Royals very wary.
She wasn’t British to begin with
And too beneath them to be kin with.
She had charisma, charm, and grace
But none of these outweighed her race.
And now like drips out of a spigot
Flows venom out of every bigot.
The Queen is not amused at all
To hear the two may have the gall
To live outside her circle married.
But don’t blame them. Blame those who harried.
