Harry credits his evolution to “a more diverse perspective,” perhaps acknowledging the unfathomable privilege into which he was born when she added, “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.”
