As an actress on the USA show Suits, Meghan participated in the “I Won’t Stand For…” campaign as part of the charity Erase the Hate. In the video, she wears a T-shirt with the words “I Won’t Stand For Racism” as she opens up about being biracial.
“I’m biracial. Most people can’t tell what I’m mixed with, and so much of my life has felt like being a fly on the wall,” Meghan said. “And so some of the slurs I’ve heard or the really offensive jokes, or the names, it’s just hit me in a really strong way.”
She continued by bringing up an experience with her mother, Doria Ragland.
“You know, a couple of years ago I heard someone call my mom the N-word. So I think for me, beyond being personally affected by racism, just to see the landscape of what our country is like right now, certainly the world, and to want things to be better,” she continued.
Meghan went on to say that people are often treated based on how they look, but “certain people don’t look at me and see me as a black woman or a biracial woman.”
“They treat me differently I think than they would if they knew what I was mixed with and I think that is, I don’t know, it can be a struggle as much as it can be a good thing depending on the people that you’re dealing with,” she said.
