The British Royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shows that white supremacy around the globe is on its ‘last breath,’ legendary civil right activist and TV show host Al Sharpton said on Saturday.
Sharpton made the comments during his weekly National Action Network event in Harlem, telling listeners that Markle, who is half black and half white, serves as an inspiration to a new generation of British youth.
‘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 added.
The Baptist minister also gave listeners a history lesson during his address, referencing a time when a former British queen was forced to hide her African roots, according to The New York Daily News.
Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz
Sophia Charlotte ( Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz; May 19 1744 – November 17 1818) was the wife of King George the III and served as Queen of England and Ireland from her wedding in 1761 until her death.
Some scholars believe that Charlotte may have had African ancestry, via decent from Margarita de Castro e Souza, who traced her ancestry to King Afonso III of Portugal (1210–1279) and one of his mistresses.
George III and Charlotte had 15 children, 13 of whom survived to adulthood.
‘They hid the fact that there was an African-blooded queen 57 years married to King George III, named Sophie Charlotte,’ the 63-year-old noted.
‘But Meghan is too well-known… Y’all ain’t gonna hide Meghan. In fact, she brought mama there so y’all can’t,’ Sharpton boasted while referring to Markle’s African-American mother Doria Ragland.
A welcomed theme that ran through the royal wedding on Saturday was the embrace of diversity, with the ceremony featuring a black American Bishop from Chicago, a black choir and songs like ‘Stand By Me’ and ‘This Little Light of Mine,’ created by famous black artists during the civil rights era of the 1950s and 60s.
Sharpton claimed that bigots in America are ‘losing their minds’ as long-entrenched racial divisions are slowly melting away.
‘They’re losing their minds because the world is passing away where they are the standard,’ said Sharpton. ‘Where they decide what is beauty, where they decide what is of intellectual depth.’
