Something along the lines of "the correct position is that "*some* of the criticism is racially motivated." Some. Not all. Fox is saying none of it is, she is saying all of it is. Both are wrong.

Remember, bring "tolerant" of something/someone implies your default position is intolerance.

On Fox:

Wait, his brother-in-law is Richard Ayoade? Yes, and he asked Ayoade to publicly support him on Twitter after his Question Time appearance.

And did he? Of course not. According to Fox, Ayoade angrily told him: “You have never encountered racism.” To which Fox replied that he had, because he worked in Kenya once and “racism can be deferential”.

When asked what deferential racism was, Fox didn't know
.
Sorry, my response was more to “ We tolerate them. Charming.”

Because, in a multicultural society, surely what we are aiming for is toleration? ( I mean, you don’t have to think Vanilla Ice’s rap oeuvre is great or actively seek it out, but it should be tolerated as part of greater society.)

As for "unemployed", his only real job was in the army, right?

Nothing since then other than wealthy layabout.
When he was a "Royal" he had some "Royal duties" which involved things like, I suppose, meeting foreign dignitaries and appearing at some public events. Perhaps the opening of a new civic center or some such thing. Shaking hands and making chit-chat. Perhaps giving a speech. Not what most people would consider a "real job" I suppose, but something. I don't know how demanding those "duties" were. :notsure:

MEGHAN Markle has "moved mum Doria Ragland into the £8 million LA mansion" she rents with husband Prince Harry.

Will they divorce or will he kill them? Or kill himself? :lmao:

Uh oh! :lmao:

EXCLUSIVE: Meghan Markle tells friends her instinct to leave the UK 'all makes sense' now because she was 'destined' to help fight systemic racism in US - and she hasn't ruled out a career in politics
Daily Fail
  • Meghan Markle believes she was 'destined' to help fight systemic racism in the United States, a close friend exclusively told DailyMail.com
  • The Duchess feels that her 'gnawing urgency to uproot from England' was fate so that she could be at the 'forefront' of the movement, the insider explained
  • The friend said: 'She’s been speaking with Oprah and other community leaders on how she can be part of the solution'
    'Meghan feels like her mission goes far beyond acting. She said she wants to use her voice for change and hasn’t ruled out a career in politics,' they added
  • The 38-year-old former actress and her husband Prince Harry quit their royal duties earlier this year and moved to Los Angeles
  • She recently had to distance herself from best friend Jessica Mulroney after she threatened to sue a black influencer after a dispute over racism
  • It came as the US has been rocked by protests across the country in the wake of George Floyd's death
  • Meghan spoke out about Floyd's death, declaring 'black lives matter' and admitted she hadn't made a statement earlier because she had been 'nervous'
...

They added: 'Meghan said her work as a leader is more important than ever right now and that she’s been speaking with Oprah and other community leaders on how she can be part of the solution.

...
She has conferred with Chicago's great spiritual leader. How can she miss? :BigGrin3:

My wife was talking about her while we were driving around the other day. I mentioned that the Queen doesn't like her very much either. She said she thought that too but you can't believe what the media says. I told her I wasn't getting it from the media, I was getting it directly from the Queen, that I read her blog every day, that she's constantly talking shit about her.

She looked at me and said, 'You're lying. The queen doesn't have a blog.' I just shrugged, 'believe what you want'. But I just know that she went hunting for it once I was out of sight.

It's the Daily Fail quoting an anonymous source. Maybe it's true, but the British tabloids have made it their mission to make everyone hate Meghan Markle.

As always with the Daily Fail on any subject, skepticism is in order.

But I would also say that for this story, the coverage itself is the real story.
Because what really happened absolutely does not matter.

And also this is now a Chicago story, because Oprah is Chicago's pope. :)

Let me contribute to this tabloid thread:
Meghan Markle wants to run for president of United States, claims Lady Colin Campbell

Famous author Lady Colin Campbell has claimed that Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle wants to run for president of the United States in the future.

The 70-year-old author who appeared in I’m A Celebrity said the wife of Prince Harry has political ambitions and her decision to move to the United States was part of the plan.

...

Speaking to FEMAIL!, Lady Campbell said, I know the Duchess of Sussex has political ambitions and I’ve been told that one day she wants to run for President.

She added, I think everything she is doing, leaving the royal family and moving back to California is part of her plan and she has taken Harry along with her.

Wouldn't she have to divorce whatsisface and stop calling herself duchess?

Whereas the Oprah thing is entirely plausible.

Whoopi Goldberg needs to get in on this too.

How to fight systemic racism

1) Marry a rich white man.
