You are soooo right, Manny Otiko! A few remarks:

- There never ever has been a colored relative in any Western European Royal family;

- The Royals over here are pretending they are neutral, but most of them are right wing billionaires;

- Our King William I (1772-1843) stimulated slavery in Indonesia, earned millions by initiating an economic system of oppression aimed at bleeding the colonies;

- 600.000 slaves were imported in Indonesia since the 17th century;

- The foundation of Western European Monarchies is Christianity, the King was seen as chosen by God; any other religion was seen as inferior to Christianity, this was used as justification of suppression of other cultures;

- Christian missionaries in Indonesia have systematically kidnapped and brainwashed children; (compare the system of re-educating children of First Nations in Canada aimed at assimilation

- There is weak opposition to the Monarchy in my country (Nederland), the most ardent supporters of the Royals are primarily right wing.
