New blow for BRF.https://www.theguardian.c...dium#Echobox=1622639069-1
the Queenís courtiers banned ďcoloured immigrants or foreignersĒ from serving in clerical roles in the royal household until at least the late 1960s, according to newly discovered documents that will reignite the debate over the British royal family and race.
The documents also shed light on how Buckingham Palace negotiated controversial clauses Ė that remain in place to this day Ė exempting the Queen and her household from laws that prevent race and sex discrimination.
I donít understand the controversy
Itís not surprising that courtiers would fight against equality and modernity or that itís possibly not something they would bring up with the royal family. Courtiers are never
not conservative. And perhaps I am extremely ignorant because I thought most royals were above the law as the DRF is?
Not at all fair in anyway but thatís not what a monarchy is, is it...
Great Britain came out of the World War II with victory over one of the biggest evil regimes the world has ever seen-nazi Germany. I would expect BRF to lead with example and be a leader when it comes to solving racial issues.
So did the US. I donít exactly see the US being the world leader in fighting fascism or racism..
The Guardian is indeed a serious, credible newspaper. Itís also a republican newspaper that is trying its best to make the BRF look like a power- and people abusing entity. Their journalism is just as biased as other newspapers with an agenda.
It does feel like pushing an agenda when itís a story about courtiers being racist (shocker) in the 60í. I donít understand the news value to this story, nor do I understand why itís immediately relevant in connection to the BRF now
. They seem to have a growing focus on the topic from the BRF and while some of them are on record for making racist statements (one passed away, possibly minor Princess Pushy and of course Harry), I think in general they seem dedicated to embracing and working for a diverse UK.
