I can’t believe this has happened to one of my favorite shows. The Talk on CBS. Another American-style racial moment exploded while I was watching horrified. Sharon Osbourne of the Talk was under fire for her support of Piers Morgan. Piers Morgan said he didn’t believe Prince Harry’s wife was having mental health issues while living in Royal-dom. And, then out of no where the show went left when Sharon turns from being a white woman with power to a racist attacking Sheryl Underwood who is Black. I heard her say, “… don’t you dare cry.”
Sheryl was the typical Black woman in the workplace who can’t loose her cool. Her voice was calm and at the same time consoling. She was trying to bring calm to a volatile attack by a white co-worker. Sharon was demanding to know when her friend Piers Morgan was racist. Maybe Sharon when Meghan make claim that she felt suicidal and got no help from Buckingham Palace, Piers should have stayed silent or shown sympathy instead of racist hatefulness. Then what did Piers say, “… I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she said, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report.” excerpt from Variety.com – March 17, 2021. Sharon, in my opinion, you should have defended a person right to have mental health issues not the right to call Meghan a liar. Why would anyone deny someone else the compassion and privacy that’s due any human being who’s suffering.
