MEGHAN MARKLE TALKS RACISM IN RESURFACED VIDEO: In 2012 as a star on Suits, Meghan Markle participated in the “I Won’t Stand For…” campaign as part of the charity Erase the Hate. She opened up about her experience, saying: “I'm biracial. Most people can’t tell what I'm mixed with, and so much of my life has felt like being a fly on the wall. And so some of the slurs I've heard or the really offensive jokes, or the names, it's just hit me in a really strong way.” She added: “You know, a couple of years ago I heard someone call my mom the N-word. So I think for me, beyond being personally affected by racism, just to see the landscape of what our country is like right now, certainly the world, and to want things to be better.”

And if that’s the case, the least windows and the place that you could lock yourself in the most.” She advised people to “put some blankets and pillows in the tub in case you’re going to need to sleep there,” and a “few non-perishable things that you can eat, some fruit or protein bars.”

9-1-1 STARS SLAM RYAN GUZMAN’S RACIST COMMENTS: Several 9-1-1 stars are slamming co-star Ryan Guzman after he apologized for racial slurs. Earlier this month, his fiancé Chrysti Ane came under fire for using the N-word back in 2011. Guzman defended her, saying on Instagram Live: “I have plenty of friends — black, white, Asian, Indian, whatever they are, Korean — and we make fun of each other’s races all the time; we call each other slurs all the time. We don’t get butthurt at all because we know the actual person, we know who each other are. We know that we’re not trying to bring each other down.” On Sunday, he tweeted that he's “done with defending myself or my family to people who are as quick to judge as they are to condemn.” He shared a link of ways to help Black Lives Matter, adding, “Let me get back to the real topic and help out any way I can to the black community.” But for co-star Oliver Stark and others, it wasn’t enough. He said that there's “absolutely no excuse” for using slurs.
