Death threats for dating black man: Princess Martha Louise speaks against racism

Norwegian Princess Martha Louise (48) and her American friend Durek Verrett (45) have received death threats because of a relationship. So far, she has kept her mouth shut, but as of today, it will stop, she writes in a lengthy statement about racism on her Instagram page, following the worldwide Black Lives Matter movement.

Martha Louise announced her relationship on Instagram last year with the American shaman and guru Durek Verrett. “When you meet your twin soul, you know that. I was lucky enough to meet mine,” wrote the Norwegian princess.

“Durek made me realize that unconditional love actually exists on this planet. It is not up to you to make a choice for me or to judge me. I don’t choose my husband to please people or to meet certain standards.”

However, the relationship between the couple has remained controversial all along. Several statements by Durek, for example, caused a lot of controversy in the Northern European country. “Sometimes we have sex three to four times a day,” he said in his podcast “Ancient Wisdom Today.”

“She always asks: are you going to cum? I say no, I’m going to give you as many org**sms as you want. If you want, I can hold on for a few more hours. It doesn’t matter to me.”

Death threats

In addition to that controversy, it now appears that the couple is also regularly confronted with death threats. That says the princess on Instagram.

Martha Louise does not elaborate on the nature and seriousness of these threats, but she does share a long and ardent argument against racism. This “has given me a crash course in how white supremacy is at play and the way I have consciously and subconsciously thought of and acted towards black people,” writes the daughter of Norwegian King Harald and Queen Sonja.

The princess gives a long list of examples of how Durek is treated ‘differently’. “It is in the way people shy away from Durek. How friends assume he lies about everything. That he is evil for being kind.”

“How it is assumed that Durek is not a good person who actually loves me, but has manipulated me into loving him and keeps manipulating me in our relationship. How he will exploit me financially,” Märtha Louise continues her ardent speech. “The press presents him as a liar, being violent and a threat to my family and myself, sharing his X’s story scrupulously without checking facts because it supports the belief system already in place about him. That’s RACISM!”

“The reality of it all is that I love how he holds space for me as a woman, listens to my wisdom, and shows up for my girls and me. I love how he shares his wisdom with the world, how he inspires, changes and grows within our relationship. He is even part of my people because he is partly Norwegian, and I am part of his,” Norwegian princess Martha Louise concludes.

Being @shamandurek ‘s girlfriend has given me a crash course in how white supremacy is at play and the way I have consciously and subconsciously thought of and acted towards black people. How I have taken my rights for granted – never looked properly at what racism really is, because it has been comfortable for me that the system is in place. I am not proud of it, but I realize I need to grow into understanding this deeply rooted system to be able to be part of the dismantling of it. I, as a white person, need to grow, educate myself and become better and move from being against racism to being anti-racist. Racism is not just the obvious (which I thought it was), of the openly discrimination, mistreating and killing of black people which is easy and obvious to take a stand against. It is in the details (which I had no idea still existed). It is in the way people shy away from Durek. How friends assume he lies about everything. That he is evil for being kind. The words muttered under their breath, making it perfectly clear to him that he does not have a natural place at the table. People at high places saying “How dare you think I would touch your hand?” when he reached out his hand to say goodnight (pre Covid-19). People thinking they aren’t racist, but don’t know anyone with a different skin color than their own, apart from the people working for them. How it is assumed that Durek is not a good person who actually loves me, but has manipulated me into loving him and keeps manipulating me in our relationship. How he will exploit me financially. The press presents him as a liar, being violent and a threat to my family and myself, sharing scrupulously his X’s story without checking facts, because it supports the belief system already in place about him. THAT IS RACISM! We have both received death threats for being together and have weekly been told that we shame our people and families for choosing each other. The reality of it all is that I love how he holds space for me as a woman, listens to my wisdom and shows up for me and my girls. I love how he shares his wisdom with the world CONTINUES IN COMMENTS 👇
