The “hope” that Black women have because of Meghan Markle’s engagment and coming marriage to Prince Harry is one of desparation, because of white supremacy, systemic racism, and the psychological attack the media wages on the Black man. Why should a Black women “hope” to marry a white prince? As if your DNA itself does not have royalty that is genetically and superior to a made up royal heirachy. The Root article that is written that black women are celebrating is a direct attack against all Black men of all economic levels. What this means is that in order for a Black woman to have a hopeful future, they must marry a white man. Period. This is what this means.
Hope is what Harriet Tubman gave to Black Women. Hope is what President Obama gave to Black women..not a Prince from a family that got all their wealth from Africa and other countries.
