CNN’s Amanpour Demands King Charles III Address ‘Reparations,’ ‘Justice’ in the ‘Wake of Black Lives Matter’

Alexander Hall, Fox News, September 11, 2022

CNN’s chief international anchor Christiane Amanpour suggested Friday that King Charles III must address Britain’s “colonial legacy.”

“I really do believe that we have to have this conversation right now, even at this moment,” she said of British colonialism and pointed to the king’s remarks.

“And look, what he said, ‘In the 70 years of her being on the throne, many cultures and faiths have flourished in these past seven decades,’” she paraphrased.

Amanpour appeared to suggest that this flourishing was overblown, “particularly in the wake of Black Lives Matter and particularly in the protests that erupted all over the world after what happened in Minnesota, here as well, in France and other parts of these nations that had colonial servants, let’s face it.”


“What we’re saying is that there is the generation of multicultural and diverse Britons who want this answered, who want to see their monarch finally talk about what it means and, you know, potentially the idea of reparations, definitely justice, right? Justice,” she said, warning that the citizenry of Britain has diversified and is looking to the King to address modern cultural issues with new policies.
