Conservative British political commentator and author Calvin Robinson brilliantly and articulately calls out community activist Ken Hinds over racism and demands proof of his allegations in a heated must-watch debate.
In a segment on talkRADIO dealing with Meghan Markle and Piers Morgan, Robinson said: “First and foremost, my race has nothing to do with my politics, nothing to do with my opinions and I don’t appreciate you saying I need to stick by my own. My own is my family, my own is my Christian brothers and sisters, my own is my British community.”
“Do not dare to tell me that my own is decided by the color of my skin – who the hell do you think you are?” Robinson demanded of Hinds.
Hinds defensively shot back: “I’m an expert because I’m black so I can talk about it from a historical past.” He also told Robinson: “If you’re going to deny that part of you, that’s down to you.”
"My race has nothing to do with my politics, nothing to do with my opinions".

The debate kicked up a notch as Robinson bluntly told Hinds what he thought of him. “I put it to you that you are a racist,” he told Hinds.
Hinds’ answer was racially defensive in the extreme: “How can you call me a racist when I defend black people for many years?”
Robinson did not hesitate in his answer, and it was assertive and brilliant in its definition of racism: “Because you’re telling a mixed-race person what to think based on the color of their skin and that’s not ok, that is racist.”
For his part, Hinds then apparently tried to insultingly insinuate that Robinson’s mixed-race has somehow caused him to need mental assistance: “You better deal with your historical trauma because it’s quite clear you need some counseling to deal with it.”
TalkRADIO host Cristo Foufas stepped into the fray to try and calm things down between his guests. But it didn’t work and Robinson wound up walking out on the interview in disgust, saying he didn’t want to talk to Hinds anymore because he was racist.
Britain is having its own issues with Black Lives Matter and allegations of police brutality. Hinds sought to capitalize on that division and Robinson was having none of it.
Robinson did a second interview on talkRadio where he made it clear he was not oppressed and that anyone can be a racist.

Robinson’s pushback against racism received over 357,000 views. He told listeners: “I would like to thank all the people that have responded positively.”
“I’m very appreciative of the kind messages, I don’t like to paint myself as a victim ever but it was racial abuse, and it’s good people are recognizing that and seeing the toxicity of the wokerati,” he stated.
“I think the reason we’ve had so many views on that clip is that it shows that we’re on to something here and the silent majority are starting to wake up and speak up,” Robinson posited. “People have had enough.”
Viewers were impressed with Robinson’s stance. On Twitter, Rita Panahi stated: “Superb. Calling out a racist & demanding proof of outlandish claims. This is how conservatives should tackle misinformation.”
Others chimed in as well:
I absolutely love the way he very clearly explains why Ken is being racist at the end there.
Absolutely smashed it. He is superb!
