For the second episode of his podcast Archetypes, Meghan Markle had the pleasure of receiving Mariah Carey. And it will have seemed natural to the two women to address an issue with which they could both identify, namely their condition as mixed-race women with a pale complexion. The opportunity for the diva to remember how much she could not find her place as a child, where Meghan Markle did not experience anything like this.
Indeed, the Duchess believes that she was perceived as racialized only from the moment she started dating Prince Harry.
Change of perspective
“I mean, if there was ever a time in my life when my race was focused on, it was only after I started dating my husband, “said Meghan Markle.
“Then I started to understand what it was like to be treated like a black woman. Because before that, I had been treated like a mixed-race woman. And things are really changing,” she added.
