Even the royal family has jumped on the BLM bandwagon
Prince Harry, sixth in line to the throne, is calling out white privilege.
Prince Harry is worried about white privilege.
‘Our generation and the ones before us haven’t done enough to right the wrongs of the past… Institutional racism has no place in our societies, yet is still endemic’, he says in a short video for social media:

It might seem like a rather strange thing for a man who is sixth in line to the throne and owes all of his money, fame and influence to accidents of genetics and history to suddenly be concerned about. This is a man who sleeps in palaces decorated with colonial plunder, lecturing the masses about racism and privilege.
The royal family has now joined every company and institution under the sun in pushing the woke message of Black Lives Matter – from McDonald’s (which briefly rebranded as Amplifying Black Voices) to the Church of England (which will review all its paintings and sculptures of white Jesus).
That this woke ideology has been actively embraced by the establishment is telling. Race is a useful tool for the ruling elite because it divides working-class people along artificial lines, and it obscures the real inequalities in society, which are based on class, not race.
Prince Harry should check his privilege.
