Meghan Markle says ‘George Floyd’s life mattered’ !!! In a speech via video Wednesday to graduates of her old high school she said:
“Because George Floyd’s life mattered, and Breonna Taylor’s life mattered, and Philando Castile’s life mattered, and Tamir Rice’s life mattered, and so did so many other people whose names we know and whose names we don’t know,” Markle told the class, according to BuzzFeed News. “Stephon Clark, his life mattered.”
“I know you know that black lives matter,” she added.
“Immaculate Heart High School, graduating class of 2020, for the past couple of weeks, I’ve been planning on saying a few words to you for your graduation and as we all have seen over the past few weeks, what is happening in our country and in our state and in our hometown of L.A. has been absolutely devastating,” she began.Roya Nikkhah@RoyaNikkhah
The Duchess of Sussex has spoken out about the “absolutely devastating” death of George Floyd in a message to students at LA’s Immaculate Heart High School, her alma mater. Meghan told the class of 2020: “George Floyd’s life mattered…I know you know that black lives matter.”
“And I wasn’t sure what I could say to you,” she said. “I wanted to say the right thing. And I was really nervous that I wouldn’t, or that it would get picked apart, and I realized — the only wrong thing to say is to say nothing.”
The duchess compared the events of the past week with those she experienced when she was a young girl in 1992, when Los Angeles erupted in riots following the acquittal of police officers who had been charged in the beating of Rodney King in 1991.
“I was 11 or 12 years old when I was just about to start IHMS in the fall and it was the LA riots, which were also triggered by a senseless act of racism,” she said.
“I remember the curfew and I remember rushing back home — and on that drive home seeing ash fall from the sky and smelling the smoke, and seeing the smoke billow out of buildings and seeing people run out buildings and looting and seeing men in the back of the van just holding guns and rifles.”
“That’s something you should have an understanding of,” she added, “but an understanding of as a history lesson, not as your reality.”
Markle – whose mother is African-American and whose father is white – has sometimes found herself to be the subject of discussions about racial relations.
