Hometown and racial pride fired up royal wedding watchers across the United States on Saturday, from pre-dawn partiers wearing pajamas and fancy hats in Los Angeles to Twitter posts from Miami to Indianapolis hailing "the blackest royal wedding the U.K. has ever seen".Excitement revved up with each gesture acknowledging African-American heritage -- from the fervent sermon of Reverend Michael Curry to a choir singing black spirituals to the performance of cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, the first black musician to win the BBC Young Musician of the Year award.At the pub, Leslie Thurston of Los Angeles, who is African-American, listened to the crowd laugh at royal family members' apparently staid reaction to Curry's spirited speech.
