'I Had No Idea It Existed': Prince Harry Admits He Was Unaware of Unconscious Bias Before Meghan Markle
When one considers the scope of white privilege, it’s difficult to imagine any contemporary entity—or historical, for that matter—that encompasses it more broadly than the British monarchy. Throughout history, the family now known as the Windsors has symbolized not only the bastion of whiteness known as the British Empire but its colonization of Black and Brown civilizations throughout the world; a legacy that has remained inescapable even as it tentatively accepted Meghan Markle into the royal fold in 2018.

In a tweet, Turner said he feels "great" and has "no symptoms at all."Turner's return to the field despite his positive coronavirus test immediately drew criticism, with USA Today's Gabe Lacques writing that it was a "galling image."

A convicted gang member who said he beat up jailed R&B singer R. Kelly in a Chicago cell in August has been sentenced to life in prison for a racketeering conviction that involved two 1999 murders. A federal judge in Hammond, Indiana, sentenced Jeremiah Farmer, 39, on Tuesday during a hearing in which Farmer represented himself and appeared combative, at times raising his voice and frequently interrupting the judge. Farmer, a Latin Kings street gang member, had faced a mandatory life sentence following his conviction last year on conspiracy to commit racketeering activity in a drug-related case that involved the killings of Marion Lowry, 74, and Harvey Siegers, 67.
