It’s just a normal way of talking, I’m sure.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have called on Britain to grasp the opportunity to tackle structural racism, saying the world is “created by white people for white people”.
The Sussexes, who were interviewed via videolink from their Californian home, said the better representation in positions of power is necessary for young black Britons as they argue “we cannot change our history” but must fight to improve for the next generation.
“We cannot change history, nor can we edit our past,” they said. “But we can define our future as one that is inclusive, as one that is equal, and one that is colourful.”
Prince Harry, who told the Evening Standard of his own “awakening” to racism, said: “Because I wasn’t aware of so many of the issues and so many of the problems within the UK and also globally as well. I thought I did but I didn’t.”
He added: ““It is not about pointing the finger, it is not about blame. I will be the first person to say, again, this is about learning.
“And about how we can make it better. I think it is a really exciting time in British culture and British history, and in world culture.
“This is a real moment that we should be grasping and actually celebrating. Because no one else has managed to do this before us.”
Asked about the Black Lives Matter protests, the Duchess conceded the “disruptive” elements had been “inflammatory for a lot of people” and left them “uncomfortable”.
“But when there is just peaceful protest and when there is the intention of just wanting community and just wanting the recognition of equality, then that is a beautiful thing,” she said.
“While it has been challenging for a lot of people certainly having to make this reckoning of historical significance that has got people to the place that they are, that is uncomfortable for people.
“We recognise that. It is uncomfortable for us.”
Yes, it’s about making you uncomfortable.
You have to feel pain, personally, because you’re white.
We spent the last couple of days celebrating our son’s graduation. Tonight I turned on the news and am heartbroken. It’s important to understand that the death of George Floyd was personal and painful for many. In order to heal, it needs to be personal and painful for everyone.

This is all normal.
White people have to be removed from power in their own countries and forced to feel pain because that is morally good.
There’s nothing weird about any of this.
Anyone who doesn’t think this is normal is evil. You’re supposed to feel uncomfortable, and feeling uncomfortable is normal when peaceful protesters violently overthrow your society.
White people have to feel pain and suffer as they surrender their countries to brown people. This is morally good, because of things that supposedly happened hundreds of years ago.
