Meghan Markle criticised the big search engine Google and said it helped spread negative ideas about black women.

The Duchess of Sussex said she was surprised by the results of a study by Gender Studies professor Dr. Safiya U. in the most recent episode of the bombshell podcast Archetypes.

“Her findings in this book had my jaw on the floor,” she spoke.
