I am SO glad to see they are out there, not capitalizing on their connection to the crown...

If she wants to go by a single name, like Cher, or Liberache, I would have preferred she had chosen, "Markle." Sounds Sparkle-y.

That'll teach Meghan Markle to not marry a white guy.

Philly guy -salt pretty much defines us.

And I guess I'm pretty much annoyed; I have been cheering on them pulling the eject from the gilded zoo, and then this. It's like denying the KKK, but keeping the lil white hood.

Over plagiarism that even the supposedly plagiarized author says isn't so. It's almost as if there's something else bothering people about her.

Charitably, maybe these people just despise he concept of "royalty" (very much rightly, as I do) but have no sense of context, proportion, or reasonableness. Some of them at least. We all know why some others salivate at the thought of criticizing her.

She earned her title with at least as much effort as all the other royals put in. Now she's deconstructing their bloated self-importance by putting her first name only and her title on a children's book. If it annoys the in-laws, she wins. Anything else is sauce royale.

Using the title on the book cover is a not so subtle dig at the chuds, and boy do they not like it.

What's with you "conservatives" and the children's book lately?
Is this linked to those cartoons on 4chan you guys like so much?

It also has nothing to do with my gay porn film "The Bench", which is about cruising in Central Park.

Wut? What does that have to do with MSN writing a snarky post making fun of those accusing this woman of plagiarism?

Or someone got a big phat cheque.
Plus the author will benefit from the accusation as many people who would have never bought the book will do so to compare it to hers.

No one would ever have known she was mixed race if she hadn't told the world.
If she hadn't told the world, she couldn't play the victim.
Blame everything on racism.
She flips that race card faster than anyone.

Well, TFA mentions "several critics" without a single citation.  Not even a link to some doofus on Twitter.

But if I had to guess, 90% of these "critics" are just idiots who like throwing fuel on fires - I personally work with at LEAST two people who do this.
 
2021-05-06 8:23:08 PM  
Or since this story came out before the other authors book had been released someone "leaked" this story to create controversy.
Wonder who that could be. Who would stand to benefit the most. Hmm

I do it to watch the white knights rush to the defense of the social climbing grifter because *racism*.

They agreed to not use their titles they abdicated but then the social climbing grifter does anyway.

"White Knighting" would be concocting a fanciful story about the author being paid off to state the obvious fact that there is no similarity between the books, to defend the racist royalist tabloids.
It's a fantasy you pulled out of your ass.

Eh, anyone who uses titles in their name is an asshole. People who want others to address them by their titles even more so.

I don't care if they are aristocratic or scholarly or professional in nature.

/The one exception is in the introduction when it provides important context such as "Hello I am DerAppie, the company CEO, and I have some questions about the work you are doing"
//As that contextualizes the amount and type of information one might give
///Yes, I got one, no, I do not use it

White knighting is just defending people. Calling people racist seems to fit the bill, as it is trying to discredit the people making the accusation. One does not need to make fanciful stories.

Several critics is not sourced.  MSN wrote the story.  Each side accuses their favorite-to-hate news site of being the advocate of the story they write when it is unsourced.  Therefore, when someone says "latest thing that conservatives latched onto" that was written by MSN that did not source it, obviously they are saying MSN is conservative.

Unless, of course, you are saying that jake_lex is justing making up a snarky post to take an unwarranted swipe at some imagined enemy of themselves with no source, no information, etc. aka TROLLING?

Seriously, you need to learn how this works.

I never said you were a racist. I said that people calling others racist for being critical of Meghan Markle are still white knighting, even if no fanciful stories were involved.

You think that maybe the first public appearance by her mother would have taken care of that, huh? Like that's something she could keep hidden and if she had managed it she would have been castigated for that.

I'm really sick of people ragging on her because she is mixed race and proud of being so and other people pointing out every pimple, or clothing choice at a screech when we all know the only reason she gets hate is that she had the audacity to not only be 'passable' but for landing a Prince.

It's not a good look on you racist folk that substitute non-racist 'issues' to tear her down. How about for once you just be honest* and state why you really hate her! Hint: It has NOTHING to do with children's books or clothing she wears and has everything, EVERYTHING to do with her being half-blah. Fuk all of you racists!

I don't care about her race.

Don't expect you to believe it.

But she uses is as a cover all shield.
Say anything negative about her and she plays the race card.
But most the time before she has a chance to, the mindless minions on the internet looking for an opportunity to shriek racist at someone does it for her.
