NBC Smears King Charles: He Now Inherits Legacy of Slavery

Breaking News

Four days after the death of Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain, NBC Nightly News on Monday evening decided to smear her successor King Charles III and the British monarchy as having inherited the legacy of slavery. Despite the fact that virtually every civilization on earth had engaged in the evil act of slavery of some form, anchor Lester Holt and correspondent Kerry Sanders decided to bring up the topic to slime Great Britain as an evil force in western society.

Holt opened the segment by noting that Queen Elizabeth “was also the official head of state in 14 other nations including some that carry memories of a painful past.” Of course, that painful past Holt referred to was slavery.

During his report, Sanders proclaimed that “Jamaican historian Cliff Hughes says this country’s beautiful shores hold an ugly past. Slavery. The enslaved forced to the West Indies by the Royal African company. They harvested sugar, known as green gold.”

During an interview with a Jamaican woman named Fae Ellington, she told him that the sugar trade “built England. It built the streets. It built the big businesses.” Sanders then cried “the new King, Charles III, now inherits that legacy.”

Hughes told Sanders that “when slavery was finally abolished, those who were the enslavers were paid 20 million pounds, which was 40 percent of Britain’s annual budget.” When Sanders asked how much of the money was given to the slaves once they were freed, Hughes said “not one cent.” 

Neither Sanders nor Hughes explained why this is newsworthy considering Great Britain has long since abolished slavery.

Despite this fact, Sanders ended the segment by crying about reparations: “When the now prince and princess of Wales visited Jamaica in March, there were protests and demands for an official apology. Some now hope that comes from the new King. Under the court system here, which mirrors England’s, if there were an official apology, that could well open the door to reparations.” 

Lester Holt and Kerry Sanders should explain why reparations are fair since neither enslavers nor slaves are currently alive, nor have they been for at least hundreds of years.

LESTER HOLT: The Queen is being mourned well beyond Great Britain. She was also the official head of state in 14 other nations including some that carry memories of a painful past. Kerry Sanders reports tonight from Jamaica. 

KERRY SANDERS: In former British colonies around the world flags at half staff, including in India, once part of the sprawling British empire. 

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: I remember her in such a way that she’s just like our mother’s figure. 

SANDERS: The Queen often visited Britain’s colonies and former colonies. Today there are 14 commonwealth realms where the King is still recognized as the head of state. Including here in Jamaica. 

Are you mourning the queen’s death? 

CLIFF HUGHES: No. 

SANDERS: No? Because? 

HUGHES: Her passing is regrettable. But she’s not that close to us for us to be mourning. 

SANDERS: Jamaican historian Cliff Hughes says this country’s beautiful shores hold an ugly past. Slavery. The enslaved forced to the West Indies by the Royal African company. They harvested sugar, known as green gold. 

FAE ELLINGTON: It built England. It built the streets. It built the big businesses. 

SANDERS: That’s the value of sugar at the time. 

ELLINGTON: Yes. 

SANDERS: The new King, Charles III, now inherits that legacy. 

HUGHES: When slavery was finally abolished, those who were the enslavers were paid 20 million pounds, which was 40 percent of Britain’s annual budget. 

SANDERS: And how much were the slaves themselves who were now free given? 

HUGHES: Not one cent. 

SANDERS: Which is why reparations remain a hot topic. When the now prince and princess of Wales visited Jamaica in March, there were protests and demands for an official apology. Some now hope that comes from the new King. Under the court system here, which mirrors England’s, if there were an official apology, that could well open the door to reparations.
