Prince Harry: More Racial Trouble
Just a month after a recent scandal involving a some racist comments he made in a video clip during his military service, Prince Harry, 24, is now reportedly involved in a similar situation.
The prince reportedly told black comedian Stephen K. Amos that “you don’t sound like a black chap” after he performed at the 60th birthday of Harry’s father, Prince Charles.
“I wanted to say, ‘How is I supposed to sound?'” Amos said.
“Many young people will be disgusted by his remark,” said Naomi Byron, national secretary of Youth Against Racism in Europe. But it is not just Prince Harry that is at fault,” she stated. “The aristocratic, rich circles he moves in obviously don’t have a problem with this kind of racist stereotyping.”
“We don’t comment on allegations about private conversations involving the prince, and we are unable to confirm whether it did or did not take place,” Prince Harry’s rep said.
Prince Harry was forced to publicly apologize for referring to a fellow officer as a “Paki” and a “raghead” in a video clip from 2006 recorded during his military service.
