The Duchess of Sussex also spoke about hearing someone call her mother, Doria Ragland, the 'n-word.'

.“I’m biracial. Most people can’t tell what I’m mixed with and so much of my life has felt like being a fly on the wall,” said Meghan, who was then starring in “Suits.”She noted the slurs and “really offensive jokes” she’d heard. “A couple of years ago I heard someone call my mom the ‘n-word,’” Meghan said. “So I think for me ― beyond being personally affected by racism ― to see the landscape of what our country is like right now and certainly the world and to want things to be better.”

“Certain people don’t look at me and see me as a Black woman or a biracial woman. They treat me different, differently I think then they would if they knew what I was mixed with. And I think that is ― I don’t know ― it can be a struggle as much as it can be a good thing depending on the people that you’re dealing with,” Meghan said. 

In the 2012 video, the now-Duchess of Sussex said that by the time she had kids, she hoped the world would look different. “I am really proud of my heritage on both sides. I’m really proud of where I’ve come from and where I’m going,” Meghan added. “I hope that by the time I have children that people are even more open-minded to how things are changing and that having a mixed world is what it’s all about. I mean, certainly, it makes it a lot more beautiful and a lot more interesting.”

Obama sold hope in 2008, that is all he did. Trudeau promised big in 2015, almost 5 years later, all he has done is talk and spend to get votes. Liberals stand for everything but do NOTHING! other than cut cheques. PissedOffMonkey quea_ali
