I've been watching commentary on the announcement by that couple to step down as ' senior royals' and a couple of bits about it's all due to British racism against Meaghan.
As an American, I always assumed the Brits would trash her (as they did) because she's an American. We are independent minded and have little respect for pomp and circumstance or pointless tradition.
Does anyone see racism? If so, I'd be interested in why.
I know this probably blows your mind. A thread that doesn't bash the poor or family minded couples.
Crazy, crazy. Right?
This post is totally superfluous. Can you "think" of more worthy posts. Let Harry & Meghan live their lives. What about more important things? Can you think of more intelligent posts such as how to reduce poverty & homelessness in America, how to improve neighborhoods, etc. ???? Harry & Meghan have their career plans- they are socioeconomic straight. They are educated & can write their tickets. Please post more worthy, intelligent, & analytical posts. You are watching too much television- please read a book.... I know I am asking you to stretch yourself......
Well....I was trying to resist but since you and Randy started it, my willpower went poof!
What makes this post particularly funny to me is that LtL loves to tell people from other countries who.post about U.S. politics to buzz off and here she is sticking her American nose in British business.
Time for FUN...…. This is so typical of LTL. She is such a hoot.....
This post is.……...well...……….
Well, people have a right to post what they want...……….I may not like it but it is their right...…….hmm...…..
Are there MORE IMPORTANT things to talk about...…..Who really cares??
Totally agree...….WHO thought of this in the first place? C'mon...…
What...…...WHAT!!! I can't take this!!!!
She's not the only one, Sandy. Others on these forums become indignant when "furriners" give their input on US politics. But then, she supports Trump. You gotta cut any Trump enabler a little slack.
This is really an interesting social issue. The idea of taxpayers footing the bill for people who are, in the end, just a bunch of people.
I think you guys missed the greater question. Why can people comment, negatively, without race being brought up.
But, I get it. A childish desire to attack does appear to have overwhelmingly washed over a few here.
And, that's quite alright. That's the beauty of free speech. You guys can sound as ridiculous as you like.
Britain/UK is not the United States. I would not try to find fault with their different cultural and historical background model because it does not fit the US model. Supporting the Royals is part of their tradition, just as we have our "traditions".
There are many things that in my opinion are superior aspects of their culture over our own.
Credence I don't find my opinion superior. You are correct. Their traditions are theirs. I'm not sure I was bashing their belief. I was questioning if Americans see that belief as racist, in how it is playing out with an American who submerged herself in that world.
I had no idea the question would have created such food for fodder for the peanut gallery, but I'm glad they had fun with it.
Let's think. I didn't miss the greater point so that's a no. Although, it can easily be argued that you missed it due to my inability to state it in an easily recognised manner.
As to the childish desire to attack, I've attempted to just let the childish comments lie. But that's a judgment call. Right? We may not agree but I declare that a second no.
The third is a judgement call also. But I'll spot you that one and say yes.
Yes. How dare I question the treatment of an American by a foreign press.
I have no problem with it. I just think it's funny given your oft-stated belief that citizens of other countries have no business discussing American politics on an open internet forum.
No, i don't see racism, as more I see a couple stepping away from tradition. I am reminded of the Duke of Windsor and his American wife back during the 1930s.
When you are a "royal" there is a certain protocol and Meagan and the Prince chafe at their expected roles and the decorum required, as they would prefer more independence. I have read stories of Markle being "too commercial" when a certain aloofness to the commercial world is expect d as part of the role.
I am sure that the late Princess Diana with her very public style ruffled feathers with the Queen, Prince Charles and other traditionalists and it had nothing to do with race.
The problem is that you can't have it both ways....
I really don't give a big dog f**k about royalty. They should live their lives as they wish and to hell with the Queen! Am I being too blunt?
HAIL Randy, total concur. This is typical of LTL. This post is totally....IRRELEVANT. How irrelevant can one be? Really!
Not at all. I feel the same about the idea of royalty. It isn't royalty, per say I was questioning. I was questioning their opinion of markle and what you think drives it.
The idea of any, present day, belief which causes public funds to be doled out to people because the public collectively believes them special is alien to us as Americans. But, it is a British idea and they are welcome to it.
I was primarily questioning the treatment of an American citizen and what people thought the impetus was.
This is cute. It's like a little clique in high school.
You guys are always good for a laugh.
