'I blocked and reported a number of social media users': Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle pens a VERY honest essay addressing the racism she has endured from online trolls

So there!
Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle has penned a powerful essay addressing social media trolls.

Meghan, 35, has opened up about the backlash she received over the producers of Suits decision to cast black actor Wendell Pierce to play her on-screen father.

In an essay for Elle UK magazine, she wrote: 'I remember the tweets when that first episode of the Zane family aired, they ran the gamut from: "Why would they make her dad black? She's not black" to "Ew, she's black? I used to think she was hot."'

The American actress says that the few tweets she was aware of spoke volumes of the racism still at large in the US.

She continued: 'The reaction was unexpected, but speaks of the undercurrent of racism that is so prevalent, especially within America.'  (more...)
