I am so done with political correctness. I choose to speak the TRUTH, “my truth” even when that truth is not the popular opinion among people of my kind. I am in the season of dancing to Secrets, by One Republic, so I am going to dance with my pen until my sleeves are stained red from all the TRUTH I can say.
Since the infamous Meghan Markle Oprah interview, Britain has actually been branded the MOTHER OF RACISM, and the accusations are getting bigger. A month after Meghan’s shock interview “exposing the British royal family as racist” two days ago, American Reverend Jesse Jackson declared Britain as the founder and mother of racism where apparently, “Blacks cannot be part of the CROWN”, despite there being proven historical evidence, which I have written about by the way, where black people with nappy hair and dark skin were part of the British Crown.
Below is a picture of a Black British Royal, Lady Victoria Randle, a blue black nappy haired woman like me, who was the god daughter of Queen Victoria.
As a matter of fact, there has always been Black British royalty in the British Monarchy, even Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III was a light skinned woman of colour. So when Jesse Jackson says that “Black people cannot be part of the Crown”, I want to know where his source of information is because British history proves him wrong.
When Meghan threw the whole royal family under the “racist” bus by refusing to name the “racist royal” who apparently denied Archie a title because he was black, (which he’s not) it was Prince William who faced the wrath of black people. Black Social media was ablaze as they branded William a racist, calling him names, laughing at his bald head and black Christians calling him the Anti Christ. The bullying he faced was downright cruel, if truth be told. It’s like black people have a pass to just be nasty and berate a white person, and not be called out for it because they are black. When you think about it, all the bullying of Prince William was actually initiated indirectly by Meghan.
Then when Prince William was asked by a reporter if the royal family was racist on his first outing after the Oprah bombshell interview, and he denied it, more mocking came from black people, saying he had activated a token black woman to walk next to him. The black woman who was pictured walking next to William and Kate was called a “PR stunt.”
Just imagine how the poor black woman felt, who was just doing her job now being a laughing stock among black people.
And as if that was not enough, a friend of Prince William, a black man he has known for years, and has spent a night with sleeping rough in the cold streets of England, felt so compelled to defend his friend, and testify that this man who is now being plastered all over social media as a picture of racist Britain was not like that, was then subjected to more bullying and mockery by black people. He was called an “emergency black friend”, sell out, uncle Tom, house nig*r, puppet among other worse derogatory names by BLACK PEOPLE who ironically never get called out for their racism and meanness towards other black people who don’t agree with them. Now imagine how William’s friend felt when he became a laughing stock to black people for sharing his truth.
What I want to ask black people who are so passionate to denounce Britain as racist because of Meghan’s version of truth, how come you do not allow other black people who do not share your views to also share their “truths”?
Dear black people, why do you insult and bully black people who do not believe that Meghan is telling the truth? Are you not the same, if not worse than the people you accuse of racism? As I have always maintained, my husband and I and our children have suffered more racism and abuse in the hands of black people than we have ever suffered in the hands of the “most racist” white people.
On my Twitter and Facebook, I am being called all sorts of racial derogatory names, like nig*r, by black people because I see Meghan as a threat to humanity, and I want her stopped.
I am so disappointed with Idris Elba, who today because of Meghan, is now ready to tarnish Britain and the royal family, yet by his own testimony, he did say in the past that it was Prince Charles who gave him a breakthrough to become one of the world’s biggest stars. Prince Charles literally made Idris Elba into a star. And not just Idris Elba, Prince Charles played a role in launching the careers of black men like David Oyelowo, Naughty Boy and many more. Oh how we quickly forget in life.
I refuse to live in a world where Meghan Markle’s delusions and lies are now the standard of TRUTH.
If the royal family were so racist the woman would have never married Harry in the first place.
In fact right now there is an outpouring of lamentations from WHITE PEOPLE on a popular You Tuber’s channel who are wishing that I, Mary Tamar was Jean, a blue black nappy haired black woman should have married into the British Royal Family instead of Meghan. They now wish that it was better for Harry to marry an African royal like myself, because my love for United kingdom would have brought honour to the country instead of Meghan who has brought shame and reproach on the country that gave her everything any woman can desire.
So if Britain was so racist, why are the white people of Britain now wishing that Harry should have married a full black woman who loves the United Kingdom? Why does this TRUTH not matter today?
When I boldly declare that Britain is not racist, I am speaking my truth. I remember when I was a single mother in the UK, and my ex-husband was stalking me. One day I went to a hair salon, and as I left, I took a selfie of my new hairstyle and posted on my Facebook. My ex-husband then started sending me anonymous comments and messages, saying he had seen me coming out of the salon, he mentioned the salon. That day, at night as I was sitting alone in my living room, he started sending me more messages, saying he could see me, and saying things that only my ex-husband used to say to me. I felt like he was parked outside and I was terrified unto death. So I called the police, who came the next morning.
When I showed the white British police officer who came to my house the messages from my ex-husband, he reassured me that he was personally going to call my ex-husband and deal with him, and I should not be scared, because I was never going to receive such messages again. And behold, that was the last time I ever received such scary anonymous messages from my ex-husband. Why am I telling you this reader, because as a black woman if I was in Zimbabwe and was having such serious threats to my life, the Zimbabwean police would have done NOTHING to protect me, but the British police did, and saved my life on more than one occasion.
When I angered the Agape church members by exposing the pedophile pastor Walter Masocha, the church members started sending me threats of burning down my house. I did not even know that in the UK, I could get protection from such life threatening threats. During that time, I was receiving counselling for post traumatic stress, paid for by the NHS, and I had a trained female worker who was giving me support as a recovering victim of domestic, emotional and spiritual abuse. This white woman, who was so good to me, became so terrified for me and reported the arson threats to the police.
For over two weeks, I had one of the most expensive fire alarm systems in my house, which was connected directly to the fire station. I had a personal alarm where if I pressed the button, the police would know exactly were I was and respond immediately. I was so protected that one day I burnt sausages and the fire alarm security system went off and within minutes there was like 4 fire trucks and police cars outside my house. I felt so stupid and bad, that I had wasted such expensive recourses and time, that I stood there apologising, but all these firemen and policemen who were all white, were reassuring me that it was fine and I was not in trouble, the main thing was that I was safe, so the false alarm was good news for them. As a black woman, I was so protected by the system, and I know that was I in Zimbabwe faced with the exact same situation, the police would have done NOTHING for me.
When I first reported ‘prophet’ Walter Masocha to the police, as a black woman of faith I was so scared that I was “touching” the anointed prophet of God. Because of all the indoctrination and brainwashing I had received in the church, I was genuinely scared of being punished by God. I told the police this, that although I am reporting this man, I feel guilty that maybe God will strike me, because that’s what they say in the church. I remember a Christian white policeman calling me and counselling me with scriptures, telling me that God was not going to punish me, he said if anything God was going to reward me for reporting this sexual predator to the police. This white British policeman of faith gave me the strength to stand by my convictions.
The British Police was my pillar during the darkest times of my life in the UK, a support system that does not exist in Africa, Zimbabwe, especially for women. When I had no husband, no family, or friends to stand with me, the police gave me security and protected my life. My BLACK LIFE MATTERED to the British Police. So I can not stand here, and falsely testify that Britain is a Racist Monster when that has not been the case in my life. When it mattered the most, this so called “racist” country was there for me. That is why I love HER so.
So I can never compare the police system in the UK to that of USA, because my experiences in the UK with the police have been enormously positive.
There has to be a balance in everything. We can’t just push a narrative because it suits an agenda at a certain time in history ignoring all the good and progress that has been made. Yes, I get it, right now racism is trending, but should we all jump on the bandwagon? We all can’t be Dr Shola Mos-shogbamimu, a British born Nigerian woman who makes a living by branding Britain as RACIST.
Unlike Dr Shola, I wasn’t even born in the UK, I was born in Zimbabwe, but I love this country as though I breathed my first breath on British soil, and I would rather make my living from defending the country that saved me and allowed me to fly like an Eagle than spit on her when it’s convenient for me.
Are there racist white people in the UK? Of course they are, many, just like there are murderers, thieves, rapists and pedophiles on British soil as we speak. Does that mean Britain is a scary unsafe country to live in? No, Britain is a perfectly safe country to live in despite the bad people who live in it. Show me a country that is perfect. Dr Shola wants a perfect Britain, when she herself is far from perfect. Britain has it’s shortcomings when it comes to racial issues, but the society at large is very tolerant and progressive, and any black person who wants to can thrive in the UK, despite the challenges, that’s why many black people across the world risks their lives daily to come and live here. We can not tell a one sided racial story because it is trending today. And, no I do not deserve to be bullied and abused by black people for saying “my truth”. Even Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie speaks of the danger of telling a one sided narrative as the ultimate truth.
So is my life not a living testimony that Britain is NOT the Racist Monster the world is trying to paint? Is my story not a testimony enough that Britain is a beautiful place for a black woman to live in, thrive and be protected especially one who comes from an abusive background in Africa? Why should only Meghan’s version matter? Is it because she is mixed race and I am fully black?
Meghan says Britain and the Royal Family are racist, I stand as a black woman and say, no that’s not true, Britain protects the abused African girl child. Two of King Mswati’s ex wives fled the Royal Enswatini Palace to the United Kingdom to seek refuge and protection, something they could never get on African soil.
May God judge between Meghan’s truth and my truth, and let’s watch history be made, and see which version of the truth will stand the test of time.
