    Royalty is based on genetics--in order to be a royal --your ancestors must be of the royal blood line.

    Yet, I never hear anyone from the U.K complaining about it. Yet there is no Western Nation more politically correct than the U.K.

    Actually racism is illegal there.

    Thus the royal tradition in England violates their politically correct views.

    Are they hypocrites?

    Or...should they be excused because there is so much tradition behind the royals?...and of course the Brits are very strong on tradition.

    Hence it appears 'tradition' trumps political correctness....at least in England.

    Of course they are hypocrites.

    Who isn't?

    And worth noting: if the British didn't want the Monarchy, it wouldn't be there.

    How can Royalty be racist, when a bi racial American(and divorced) has been admitted to its ranks?

    If you were so inclined you could say they only allowed it so they could hide (their racism) behind the curtain of political correctness...

    In other words, any ass can figure a way to charge racism... :eusa_doh:

    The UK doesn't have the same issues with racism as the US.

    But the way I see it, the public were so enamoured of Princess Diana, nothing, nothing atall must upset the two young Princes. It almost brought down the Monarchy.

    I've often wondered if that's a result of Jim Crow laws. Correct me if I'm wrong.
