Prince Harry makes another racist remark

February 11th, 2009 // 89 Comments

Prince Harry is facing criticism again after allegedly making a racist remark to comedian Stephen K. Amos who performed for his father. Harry had been in trouble before for making a comment about a Pakistani officer in his army unit. This time he could’ve been making a joke but instead completely failed. Something I know absolutely nothing about. The Daily Mirror reports:

Speaking on Five’s The Wright Stuff yesterday, Amos said it came as he lined up with other stars after the performance.
He explained: “Harry said, ‘Hello, tell me, amusing… but you don’t sound like a black chap.”
As fellow panellist Lowri Turner gasped along with presenter Wright, Amos added: “I wanted to say, (putting on an accent) ‘How is I supposed to sound?’” Asked if the remark had been made in jest, he replied: “I hope it was.” But Turner scoffed: “That’s not the point.”

I, too, want to know how Amos was supposed to sound because, basing this solely on Guy Ritchie movies, British black guys sound exactly like British white guys. And both are hilarious jewel thieves. That’s science.

    calm down everyone, his boyfriend is black, so he is allowed to say that

    It’s not the fact that he said he didn’t sound like a black chap. It’s the fact that he saw a black guy, and that was the best thing he could think of to say? What the heck?

    It’s like saying to a woman, “you don’t act like a bitch.” or saying to a homo-sexual “you don’t look like you’re gay.” or saying to most of the idiots posting here “you don’t look inbred and stupid.”

    I’m just saying.

    why doesn’t this site remove the racist posts? it’s not censorship because they’re also very obnoxious.

    What’s the dealy-o? Most people have accents, some very distinctive. I’ve known white guys who grew up in predomanently black communities and went to schools with lots of blacks and they sound just like an urban black. Some white blues singers sound just like black blues singers. I’ve know black guys from England who have the distinctive English accent. Blacks from the Southern US have a distinctive speech pattern. Blacks from the ‘hood’ have a distinctive patter. To assume they all have the same accent isn’t racist. It may be lazy thinking but it isn’t racist. Hatin’ someone because of an accent is racist and stupid just like hatin’ someone because of their God given color is racist. Some of these folks need to lighten-up.

    It wasn’t a Pakistani officer you twit, it was a another soldier in his unit that Harry jokingly said “Hey, you look like a Paki.”

    It scares me that I know the whole story behind that, but not as much as the fact people actually give a shit about this dude. He’s a prince from another country… he could dine on human misery for all I fucking care. He’s not half as retarded as our elected officials or celebrities, so who gives a shit?

  6. Me

    HAHAHAHAH What a non-story. Who cares. It’s not that funny, but it’s not racist. Jesus people.

  7. Jrz

    maybe he’s the devil….*shrugs* he looks demonic.

    Stephen K Amos did a bit in one of his routines, where he joked about his voice not fitting his face, and people saying that he didn’t sound like a black man. It seems Prince Harry was just referring back to the joke in an attempt to be funny. I bet he wished he hadn’t now. I think Stephen was aware of this, so it was a bit off of him to mention it on The Wright Stuff, and have all of the papers jump on Harry again for being racist.

  9. Yardies have a very, very distinct British accent. Much different from, let’s say, a crumpet.

  10. Hey woa woa woa…this isn’t racist at all, but worse. It’s ignorance. Even Princes’ fall victim to it.

  11. Jeff W.

    This kid is such a fucking thug and he looks like the bully from A Christmas Story. Every time I see a picture of Prince Harry I just want to punch my computer. He’s just vile in every way. What a miserable prick.

  12. Harry

    That might be politically incorrect, but it’s far from racist. It’s not even as bad as what Rush Limbaugh and the Republican party peddles on a daily basis.

  13. This is horrible. It’s like the holocaust and the rape of Nanking rolled into one.

  14. british black girl

    im a black girl born and brought up in England :) but lol @9 seriously

    Nice try, there are no black men named Andrew. Fag.

    @#5: The average AMERICAN is ignorant and fat and lazy. Not simply the average black American. America is generally an ignorant and fat and lazy country.

    But the Caribbean is a ramshackle collection of third-world countries which would fall completely into the ocean à la Atlantis but for generous Americans flying in to do drugs, have sex, and then leave. The world is full of that kind of irony. I’m black and American; and ignorant, fat, lazy, magnanimous, belligerent, irreverent, overexposed, meddlesome, idealistic, and generally life force-from-the-Earth-sapping, I love this fucking country. AND fried chicken.

    If you think America’s obnoxious, then don’t watch our every move. Don’t follow our elections and watch our TV shows and read our tabloids. You’re a dumb fuck. Seriously–even I don’t watch our TV. If you have a problem with black people, cry yourself to sleep every night. That’s about all you can do. We’re here. What are you gonna do? *cricket* …exactly. Making HILARIOUS ‘racist’ comments on the innernets is pretty much the beginning and the end of it.

    If you have a problem with racists, get a life. That’s protected by an amendment. You neither understand our Constitution nor simple sociological concepts if you seriously engage in a tit-for-tat with someone who’s offended your puerile sensibilities on message board.

    Now back to the tittays

    @#65

    Not true. Caribbean blacks think they’re Brits, and that American blacks are inferior to them. Which I find to be particularly hilarious, because on those shitty little islands, clearly with regards to this particular masked inferiority complex, the emperor is NOT wearing any clothes.

    I’m sure Freud has the answer

  18. jrz

    Jeff W!!!! YOU ARE RIGHT! Prince Harry DOES look like Scott Farkus!!!

  19. sarah

    Oh, for fuck sake. If that’s racist then what is wrong with being racist?

    This kid is such a fucking thug and he looks like the bully from A Christmas Story. Every time I see a picture on ***sugarmingle. c om. I just want to punch my computer. He’s just vile in every way. What a miserable prick.

  21. Harry went to schools like myself. And being black i’ve dealt with stiff-collared faggots just like him. The sad thing about it all is he doesn’t even mean it as an offense. He’s just uncomfortable around people of colour so he cracks jokes about the situation.

    He should know better coming from royalty though.

    Doesn’t help that his mum was never seen without a coloured baby in her arms while campaigning.

  22. Interesting Science

    Racism is ingrained in men because they are territorial and not wanting to share females. Keeps males bloodlines going and although this was a necessity in the caveman days it no longer needs to apply as there are plenty of females for every male. So guys if your feeling racist tendencies it is only because on a deeper level you are scared your bloodline will not go on. In other words you need to get laid…

  23. Belle

    @55 He said “you look like a raghead” to one guy, and referred to another as “my little paki friend”. At least watch the video before you claim to know the whole story.

    Anyway, Harry’s comment isn’t so much racist as it is stupid. Do you honestly think after everthing he’s been called out for, he’d walk around insulting black celebrities? It’s a surefire way to garner bad press. He’s just completely out of touch with the rest of society. If Stephen was offended, he should have fucking said something right there and then instead of bitching about it later.

  24. lawrence

    I am reading a blog related to this at richromances.com where I found his profile over there. Amazing!!!

  25. Schmange@schmange.com

    Why that damned fucking limey with the bad teeth. How dare he.

  26. Eric

    Folks, let’s put this in perspective. Here’s a guy whose grandfather, Prince Albert, once said to British students studying in China, “Don’t stay here too long or you’ll get all slitty-eyed.”

    This dude oughta get the British equivalent of the Medal of Honor for not pulling a Michael Richards.

  27. ricksmiff

    ‘ay but you don’t sound like the heir to the throne of England

  28. Wow, you liberals and people calling this racist probably dont look as stupid as you are.

  29. Tom K

    That’s because British black people actually have some class, the American ones are the biggest pieces of trash on the planet.

    There are so many dumb black Americans that sound like they are chewing on bread, marbles and chicken when they talk that the world thinks all black people should and do sound like that. You can’t blame Prince Harry for thinking that.

  30. ricksmiff

    lesee,black people were’nt winded enough for marathons,strategic enough for tennis,classy enough for golf,smart enough for medicine or law,built right for beauty pageants or modeling,or clean enough for the white house!

  31. el es

    Yeah? Well fuck him.

  32. Poor thing. He got his mom’s big ol’ honking nose.

  33. nick

    so saying that blacks speak ebonics is racist now?

  34. craig houston

    Maybe he meant black chaps…

    I feel actually bad for prince harry, the royal family is nothing more than well kept slaves for the people’s amusement. Is there any power associated with the throne or the royal family! Can they pass legislatures or laws or make a difference in the political sector. They are like perpetual celebeties who have done nothing to deserve the attention. And then their behavior shames the royal throne..what is the worst that can happen. They get thrown out or succeded. dumb. by the way what hesaid is no different from what blacks say all the time to each other in america-”You do not saw black enough!”

  36. Highly Mistaken

    I recently went to Memphis and visited the Civil Rights Museum and saw where Martin Luther King was shot. I can not fathom how people could have so much hatred and project it onto people who are in a position of weakness. How can one fear something so much? Of course the average “Black” person does not speak so eloquently, as they were denied the opportunity to read and write and continue to grow in their native language for years. They were denied proper education. They are still denied respectful employment that will afford them the opportunity to place their children in proper schools. Do not create an animal and try to brand them as one. But I guess after treating people so poorly, it’s only natural to believe that the same treatment will be bestowed upon you one day. And the only way to prevent it is to continue to degrade, belittle and manipulate. The only problem is, you have been out thought. Who has the power now? Who had the power before? You call Blacks animals, yet your own King was a murderous, pyschotic, nyphomaniac… (Henry the VIII) who betrayed his own people, murdered children, women and catholic priests. You relish in your aristocracy, but you should know, it is your Queen inviting black people to her house… something that you will never get a chance to experience. Oh, and you should know, Massa and Bootilips, your opinons are highly outdated. I find that W.E.B Dubois or even Nefertiti and King Solomon can find many holes in your story. I hope that when you die and you are reincarnated, God doesn’t make you come back as the very thing you despise. For you shall find the world to be a much sadder place. To experience first hand from the eyes of someone who is treated poorly solely for the color of their skin. Remember, you didn’t pick your skin color …. and nor did the ones who were victimize for hundreds of years. Not trying to tell you what to think, but you should really try to find out why your hatred speaks so loud, especially considering that despite all the hangings, lynchings, rapes, etc… Blacks find the courage and power to forgive and to search for the positive in those that curse them. They walk in the footsteps of Jesus …. not Lucifer. Just food for thought…..

    Funny… Another British Fag’s sad attempt at being racist or funny. All the idiots that are posting their racism behind a keyboard are nothing short of being a coward. I have yet to find one white guy like the one’s posting here to say anything remotely racist to my face. I am an american marine stationed in Ocean Side, Ca. and have many friends that are both black, white, hispanic and reading all your comments makes me wonder about the white guys in my platoon, do they feel the same way as you idiots do and if so, do they either go home and spout off the same crap as the comments that are being made here? One thing that i’ve noticed about white people is that they won’t say this stuff to any black persons face. That’s the true definition of a coward. Brits are known for being FAGS, Pale Pink Skin, Seriously Bad YELLOW and BROWN Jacked up TEETH. White Americans are the worst, because they often look at themselves as someone that every other race should be like. Yet, I’ve heard white red necks and trailer trash, sound and talk just as ignorant as the people that they talk about.

    Black men are the most imitated but never duplicated man on this earth. You can’t go too far in your own circle of friends that doesn’t try to emulate us in some form of fashion. You want to be us so bad and you know that, that’s impossible. Face it, your women talk about your dicks being to small, you can’t fight, you suck when it comes to sports, you aren’t as smart as you think you are and most of you are GAY and trying to legalize gay marriage. All of that sums you up to be a bunch of losers and mental midgets. You talk about class, yet you have none. I’ll bet that you feel so threaten by me when you see me walk into a room and your girl can’t keep her eyes off of me. It’s not my fault that you are a pathetic loser. You are a small man in size, strength and intelligence. It feels sooo good to be black, sexy, fit and well educated. Who the HELL in their right mind would want to be a washed up, pathetic, jealous little man like you? No one. As soon as you realize this, then maybe you’ll grow up and stop posting juvenile comments with the other mental midgets on this board. Get a life fool. The world is changing and their isn’t a damn thing you can do about it.

  39. I think Stephen was aware of this, so it was a bit of him talking to Wright Stuff, and all documents in the Harry jump again to be racist.
