  • I wonder when you watched Meghan Markle speak out, what went through your mind?

  • Public service, it's a bright, sharp, hot spotlight, and most people don't understand it, nor should they.

  • The thing that I always keep in mind is that none of this is about us in public service.

  • It's about the people that we serve.

  • I always tried to push the light back out and focus it on the folks that we're actually here to serve.

  • But what about when she talked about the fact that she experienced racism?

  • I mean, I feel like that was heartbreaking to hear that she felt like she was in her own family, you know, her own family thought differently of her.

  • Race isn't a new construct in this world for people of color, so it wasn't a complete surprise to hear her feelings and to have them articulated, I think.

  • The thing that I hope for, and the thing I think about, is that this first and foremost is a family, and I pray for forgiveness and healing for them, uh, so that they can use this as a teachable moment for us all.

  • Yeah, we talk about a lot more, but it was so interesting because, you know, Mrs. Obama has spent a lot of time with the Royal Family as First Lady.

  • And it's reported that Harry and Meghan called her, um, that, you know, their path in America has taken a lot of similarities to the Obamas.

  • They both have Netflix deals, they both have deals at Spotify.

  • And so, it was really interesting to hear her take on all of this.

  • Yeah, and you have a lot more coming up in a little bit.

  • You have more of the conversation coming up next hour.

  • Cover a lot of ground.

  • We cover a lot of ground.

  • We hear about the girls moving in, and even the boyfriend.

  • Oh, you went there too.

  • -Ah, of course you did. -Thank you.
