Recently, Prince Harry has appeared in a virtual interview to fight against racism dedicated to the Colour of Change initiative. In an excerpt of the interview put out on Instagram, he is seen interacting with US civil rights leader Rashad Robinson who voices, ‘As we’ve discussed before, it is going to take every single one of us, this is not just down to the black community, it’s going to take every single person on the planet right now.’
In the spotlight
The video of the conversation surfaced online over the weekends with a captioned quote from Prince Harry reading, ‘“Inequality is not unfortunate like a car accident, it has been manufactured. Prince Harry and @iamrashadrobinson talked candidly about systemic racism, hate online and people with privilege, using their privilege for change.
Here’s a sneak peek at what happened. Stay tuned for the full convo #ComingSoon!’
His remarks follow the claims made by the authors of the royal couple’s upcoming biography that Meghan guided Prince Harry on his public ‘woke’ transformation.

Moulding the structure
In the shared footage, Rashard speaks, ‘Part of this work, part of this moment that we’re in, is that making sure from analysis to action that we drive action toward structural and systemic change. Changing the rules that have held people back.’
Later on, Harry adds, “You say this so beautifully Rashard, and it’s so true. There’s so much that has happened for so long and once those problems exist, charity is crucial in so many ways but it can’t fix the problem. The problems already exist, and are too big. As I’ve said to you before, it’s like bringing a bucket of water to a forest fire.”
On the youngsters’ footsteps
Harry explained further within the context saying, ‘We have to go to the root of the problem, the source of the problem, and actually fix it there. To be led by the younger generation and to act rather than just say, it’s like okay so you’ve said it and now you’ve got to follow through with it.’
