- Prince Harry recently spoke to Black Lives Matter activist Patrick Hutchinson.
- Patrick was photographed carrying a white counter-protestor out of harm's way amid marches back in June.
- He tells Harry of that moment: "It's not black versus white. It is everyone versus racists," before the Duke of Sussex goes on to talk about unconscious bias with the fitness trainer and author.
In conversation with Black Lives Matter activist Patrick Hutchinson, Prince Harry recently opened up about how being married to Meghan Markle has opened his eyes.
Amid protests this year, fitness trainer attended a rally with friends, reports Hello! Magazine. An image of him helping and lifting up a white counter-protester over his shoulder and taking him to safety during the march went viral around the world.
During their conversation for GQ, Patrick tells Harry: "It's not black versus white. It is everyone versus racists."
Harry says to Patrick during their Zoom chat: "Unconscious bias, from my understanding, having the upbringing and the education that I had, I had no idea what it was. I had no idea it existed. And then, sad as it is to say, it took me many, many years to realise it, especially then living a day or a week in my wife's shoes."
He later says: "I think one of the most dangerous things is people within positions of power, whether it's politics or whether it's the media, where if you're not aware of your own bias and you're not aware of the culture within your system, then how are we ever going to progress? How are we ever going to get to that point where there is more fairness? Because it's not a zero-sum game, right?
"Everyone benefits if the black community gets treated the way they should be treated."
