Markle's not leaving b/c of racism; she's leaving b/c British paparazzi are famously insane. J.K. Rowling moved for the same reason: one maniac stole her manuscript & another put a note in her 5-year-old's backpack. Race distracts from the real issue.

This is a pathetic hit job on Britain. If you doubt it, check out the author's hyperlinks. In one article she calls "racist," referring tongue-in-cheek to Markle's "exotic DNA," it actually says "nobody cares that Miss Markle is mixed race."
