Boris Johnson’s sister defends ‘racist’ article
Rachel Johnson has defended a piece of commentary she wrote in 2016 in which she said Meghan would inject some “weird” DNA into the “pale” Royal family.
Speaking to Amol Rajan as part of a BBC documentary on the relationship between national princes and the media, she said she would not use that word for now.
She said it was never meant to be racist – saying she actually meant it as a tribute to the mixed-race Duchess “to be genetically blessed”.
Johnson says she won’t use the term now because she’s been ‘educated’ and will be ‘discarded’ as the world has changed since then.
She said: “Of course, that was a couple of years ago, we’re not going anywhere near that now because we’re going to be rescinded for making anything about someone’s ethnic background the same color as yours. them, that would be completely off-limits.
“Because now I know, and now I’m educated, and I’ve educated myself that ‘strange’ is a short for Black, which you wouldn’t dare say.”
