Exactly true.  It wasn't just the brooch that drew criticism.  It's the fact that she deliberately chose to wear that brooch when she met Meghan.  Everyone knew exactly what she was saying with that brooch because of past racist comments she'd made.  She wanted to make a point about Meghan coming into the family and she did, by wearing that offensive piece of jewelry.  Perhaps jewelry like that was socially acceptable back in the last but we are not living in the past now and we see such things for what they are.

I feel sorry that you or anyone would be concerned about "the people in charge".  The only thing at issue in that episode is human respect, decency and sensitivity. We could use that handbook.

There seems to a certain group that puts themselves in charge of what is deemed offensive. YOU are exactly who I am talking about. Not every thought or action is full of hatred. Some are of course. Some are different upbringings, generation and other factors. I don’t know anything about this Princess of Kent but to label her racist over a brooch is ridiculous.

ITA with you @greeneyedlady  i am the first person to grant someone leeway and make allowances for an innocent mistake. I’m sure I’ve made my own share of them and hope people forgive me and see that they didn’t come from a bad intent. 

 

Having said that, I think it’s wrong to make excuses for and give cover to taunting cruelty. I believe Princess Michael  knew exactly what she was doing. There’s a shocking amount of “in your face” nastiness going on today and humanity is the poorer for it.
