Prince Harry Realized About Unconscious Bias From His Wife Meghan Markle

Prince Harry recently spoke in an interview with Patrick Hutchinson. Patrick is the guy who went viral after he was captured carrying a white man to safety in a Black Lives Matter Protest. Prince Harry revealed that his upbringing kept him away from unconscious bias, and he learned about it through his wife. Moreover, he said, “Unconscious bias, from my understanding, having the upbringing and the education that I had, I had no idea what it was. I had no idea it existed. And then, sad as it is to say, it took me many, many years to realise it, especially then living a day or a week in my wife’s shoes.”

Prince Harry Feels People With Power Are The Most Dangerous

Prince Harry thinks that people with power can be the most dangerous if they have an unconscious bias. This will then run through their organisation and decision making as well. Moreover, he said:

“And I think one of the most dangerous things is people within positions of power, whether it’s politics or whether it’s the media, where if you’re not aware of your own bias and you’re not aware of the culture within your system, then how are we ever going to progress?”

Prince Harry Calls Black Lives Matter Movement A Global Movement

Prince Harry extended his support for the Black Lives Matter movement and asked people to join it. He called it a global trend as it has the potential to bring change not only in the US but in the entire world. He said, “This is a global movement. The train has left the station. If you’re not on it now, then get on it because there’s so much that we can do. And being a dad myself, the whole point in life, I guess, for me, is to try to leave the world in a better place than when you found it.”

Harry Feels It Will Take Everyone To Make A Change

Prince Harry is optimistic that if everyone decides to take this movement seriously, then only there can be a change. He said, “It’s going to take every single one of us to change things, and anyone that’s pushing against it needs to take a long, hard look at themselves in the mirror.”
