A NEW aide to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has sparked fury as past comments branding all white people “racist” emerged.
Genevieve Roth, the Duke and Duchess’ new strategist, last year claimed “all white people are rife with internalised racism” in an article for Good Housekeeping.
“It does not matter how many marches I have planned or how many progressive candidates I have campaigned for or how many times I have chanted Black Lives Matter in the streets: I am rife with internalised racism and unconscious bias,” she added.
“And to all of the non-black folks reading this, we need to get clear on something: So are you.”
Roth has also previously revealed she realised her own “unconscious bias” after marrying her black husband, Jordan, saying “As a white woman of privilege, I have racist tendencies written in at a cellular level.”
Writing a piece for Australian social enterprise Primer, she said: “As a white American woman, I have too often made the mistake of considering racial injustice as something happening to black people that I needed to empathise with and fight for, instead of understanding it as something that I myself was creating and responsible for.
Her past comments have sparked fury on Twitter, with one user saying her comments are “not a good sign”, a second said “you couldn’t make it up” while a third branded her remarks “twaddle”.
A fourth Twitter user went even further and said “Oh God… I’ve never read such an utter vomit inducing pile of pigswill in my life…”
