Al Sharpton says royal wedding shows white supremacy is ‘on its last breath’

Al Sharpton said wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who is biracial, is a sign that white supremacy is “on its last breath.”

Al Sharpton said the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who is biracial, is a sign that white supremacy is “on its last breath.”

Sharpton spoke of the nuptials during his weekly National Action Network rally Saturday in Harlem as millions across the globe had their eyes transfixed on the over-the-top affair Saturday between Harry and Markle, whose mother is black and father is white.




“When you got little white girls in Wales saying, ‘I want to be like Meghan,’ there’s a shift worldwide that white male supremacy is on its last breath,” Sharpton said.

“When you have little white girls in Arkansas look up and say, ‘I want to be beautiful and smart like Michelle Obama. I want to dress like the Obama girls (Sasha and Malia),’ that’s where that white supremacy is questioned. White parents in their living room say, ‘We’ve got to do something.’ That’s what Trump played on. ‘We’re losing control of our own children,'” he continued.

Sharpton went deep into history to reference a queen with African roots that was hidden by the British monarchy at the time — but he was quite clear that things will be different this time around.

“They hid the fact that there was an African-blooded queen 57 years married to King George III, named Sophie Charlotte,” Sharpton said.

“But Meghan is too well-known. Y’all ain’t gonna hide Meghan. In fact, she brought mama there so y’all can’t,” he continued, referring to Markle’s African-American mother Doria Ragland, who was watching her daughter wed Prince Harry Saturday afternoon, and also had tea with fellow royals on Friday.

Markle used her wedding ceremony to highlight her biracial upbringing. The marriage ceremony featured a black American Bishop from Chicago, a black choir and famous songs by African-American artists like “Stand By Me” and “This Little Light of Mine,” which became an anthem of the civil rights movement in America in the ’50s and ’60s.

Sharpton added that white supremacists are “losing their minds” because things aren’t the way they once were when it comes to clear lines between different races.

“They’re losing their minds because the world is passing away where they are the standard,” Sharpton continued. “Where they decide what is beauty, where they decide what is of intellectual depth.”
