"It's going to take every single one of us. This is not down to the Black community. This is down to every single person that is on the planet right now."
In the clip, Rashard said: "Part of this work, part of this moment that we're in, is that making sure from analysis to action that we drive action toward structural and systematic change. Changing the rules that have held people back."
The prince - who is currently living in Los Angeles with Meghan and the couple's 15-month-old son Archie - replied: "You say this beautifully Rashard, and it's so true.
"There's so much that has happened for so long and once those problems exist, charity is crucial in so many ways but it can't fix the problem. The problems already exist, and are too big.
"As I've said to you before, it's like bringing a bucket of water to a forest fire."
The interview snippet was shared on Instagram with the caption: "Inequality is not unfortunate like a car accident, it has been manufactured."
The caption continued: "Prince Harry and @iamrashadrobinson talked candidly about systematic racism, hate online and people with privilege, using their privilege for change."
