IS THIS RACIST

Postby Igovernor » Tue Jun 08, 2021 6:32 am

A UK family lawyer has been suspended after posting tweets mocking the name of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's new arrival.

Joanna Toch, 59, took to Twitter to mock the baby's name after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they've named her Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor to honour the Queen and Princess Diana.

The practising barrister from Tunbridge Wells, Kent, suggested the name was a snub at Meghan's mother while also mocking the Black Lives Matter movement with her play on words.

She tweeted: "No Doria? Don't black names matter?"

Racism is defined as "prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism by an individual, community, or institution against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalised."

Megan Markle would have membership of a particular racial or ethnic group.

But was the question "No Doria? Don't black names matter" antagonism, discrimination or prejudice? IMO no it is a legitimate question as there have been several allegations by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of racism by the Royal Family.

Yet they choose to name their daughter after members of the Royal Family but omit the name of her black Mother Doria.

It's a fair comment or in other words free speech.

They have also criticised the journalist Julie Burchill who suggested the child should be named Georgina Floydina after the well known martyr.

Now that is a silly statement for Burchill to make!

We have reached the point that to continue in your profession you are not allowed to hold views contrary to those who represent the woke culture.

Yesterday a cricketer, today a lawyer. Who is next? You or me? We are living in very dangerous times for freedom of expression and few politicians are willing to stand up for it.

She is just stupid if she thought what she said would not be scrutinised and called into question... she had no buisness questioning why they didnt name baby after her mother in 1st place as it was a personal matter .

Are you being serious? She had every right to pass comment on it. The Sussexes are a publicity grabbing couple. And if every comment is to be scrutinised by the woke police we are in very dangerous territory.

Totally agree. The Duke and Duchess of NETFLIX are public figures and are not above making comment about other people's personal matters.
