I found a really great article that sums it up from Piers

PIERS MORGAN: I'm not a racist and neither is Sharon Osbourne but that didn't stop the woke mob lynching her just for defending me in a shocking episode that shames the Cowardly Broadcasting System and should horrify anyone who values free speech

Sorry, that's exactly what I meant to type, not that she's not either.

Her niece and nephews have spoken kindly of her.
Oh OK then, she's managed to keep some kind of relationship with her own mother!! She must be alright then!

Uhhh...she was fired for all the bad press about how she treated her co-workers, not because of her opinion on Merkle. Racial abuse in the workplace isn't protected "free speech".

I'm not surprised the only rag willing to print Morgan's delusional rantings is one of Murdoch's pieces of toilet paper.

Who is Sharon Osbourne? What is 'The Talk"? Should we be concerned that the sky might fall regarding the thread title?

The world of the celebrities and, even more so, their devoted followers whose lives revolve around them, mystifies me.

Why Markle wanted to marry into that, idfk...
The British “Royal bloodline” might not be as milky white as you appear to believe, see this from the Seattle Times;

The queen in question is Charlotte, who married King George III (yes, that King George) six hours after arriving in London and meeting him for the first time on Sept. 8, 1761.
Some historians believe she was Britain’s first Black queen, and that her descendants, including Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II, have African ancestry.

Charlotte, who was born May 19, 1744, was the youngest daughter of Duke Carl Ludwig Friedrich of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and Princess Elisabeth Albertine of Saxe-Hildburghausen.

She was a 17-year-old German princess when she traveled to England to wed George, who later went to war with his American colonies and lost badly.

Historian Mario De Valdes y Cocom argues that Charlotte was directly descended from a Black branch of the Portuguese royal family: Alfonso III and his concubine, Ouruana, a Black Moor.

Personally, I could care less if Meghan and/or Queen Charlotte were green with blue stripes.

Are you saying because she has 1 black parent - she is most certainly black? Why can’t she be white? Her father is white.
Isn’t it the outdated and racist 1 drop of blood theory?

Or is it like in Judaism- if your mother is Jewish, then you are a Jew.
If your father is Jewish, but the mother is not- then you are not Jewish?

I don’t get it: why is MM considered being black?

I already knew about Queen Charlotte. Doesn't change my opinion.


But thanks for sharing the info!

Yes... and there's about 500 years between Alfonso III's concubine in the 13th century and Queen Charlotte in the 18th century.

The idea that she was "black" is historical revisionist trope.
