Al Sharpton Says Royal Wedding Shows White Supremacy Is ‘On Its Last Breath’

Chauncey Alcorn and Nicole Bitette, New York Daily News, May 19, 2018

Al Sharpton {snip} spoke of the nuptials during his weekly National Action Network rally Saturday in Harlem as millions across the globe had their eyes transfixed on the over-the-top affair Saturday between Harry and Markle, whose mother is black and father is white.

“When you got little white girls in Wales saying, ‘I want to be like Meghan,’ there’s a shift worldwide that white male supremacy is on its last breath,” Sharpton said.

“When you have little white girls in Arkansas look up and say, ‘I want to be beautiful and smart like Michelle Obama. I want to dress like the Obama girls (Sasha and Malia),’ that’s where that white supremacy is questioned. White parents in their living room say, ‘We’ve got to do something.’ That’s what Trump played on. ‘We’re losing control of our own children,'” he continued.


Markle used her wedding ceremony to highlight her biracial upbringing. The marriage ceremony featured a black American Bishop from Chicago, a black choir and famous songs by African-American artists like “Stand By Me” and “This Little Light of Mine,” which became an anthem of the civil rights movement in America in the ’50s and ’60s.

Sharpton added that white supremacists are “losing {snip} their minds because the world is passing away where they are the standard,” Sharpton continued. “Where they decide what is beauty, where they decide what is of intellectual depth.”
