‘People are having to invent racism’: Scandal over white ‘royal’ asking black woman where she is from

After a supposed “race row” at Buckingham Palace led to the resignation of Prince William’s godmother, an unexpected silver lining has coalesced regarding the victimhood class, according to one political commentator.

Earlier this week, 83-year-old Lady Susan Hussey, an official companion to Queen Camilla, evidently caused quite a stir when she asked activist Marlene Headley of Sistah Space, who goes by the name Ngozi Fulani, the innocuous question “Where are you from?” After Headley cried foul, Hussey tendered her resignation.

Anglican deacon Father Calvin Robinson joined Fox News host Tucker Carlson Friday to discuss the dustup in a positive light as he assessed that we’ve arrived at a point “where people are having to invent [racism] where it doesn’t exist.”

Carlson played a clip of Headley recapping the exchange in her skewed perspective that she said left her experiencing “racism in an environment that I should have felt safe in” which led him to react, “Oh be quiet and go away, please. Please, go away.”

He then asserted to his guest, “This seems to me, I mean maybe I’m misreading it, like an attack on an 83-year-old woman for saying what’s perceived as the wrong thing. Is anyone pointing that out in the UK tonight?”

“Absolutely, they have,” Robinson began as he broke down two parts of the story with the first being his agreement with Carlson. “But on the other hand, it’s quite a positive I think, Tucker, because it shows how far we have come in that, we haven’t eradicated racism yet, but we’re getting very close because we’re at a point now where people are having to invent it where it doesn’t exist.”

“And the racial grievance industry are having to look where ever they can and purposefully take offense where it’s not given in order to claim that they are racially abused,” the deacon determined.

As they continued, Carlson added, “Obviously there’s a huge moral advantage in claiming that you’ve been sinned against, but it’s also an attack on the person you claimed sinned against you. It’s like an act of aggression too.”

This led Robinson to point out the inconsistencies in Headley’s own argument of oppression as he said, “What’s interesting about this, this Marlene Headley, and I will call her Headley because I won’t call her that name Fulani that she’s made up because it’s very unfortunate that she happened to choose an African name that is from a jihadist tribe of slave traders. I’m not sure if she knows that.”

The deacon went on to allege Headley likely violated British law as he suggested she may have brought a recording device into the palace to record the interaction before stating, “What is interesting about her is that she turned up in full African garb, which I would say is cultural appropriation because Marlene Headley is from Hackney, not too far from me in London. People don’t walk around wearing what she was wearing.”

“All of her bios, all of her websites, all of her literature say ‘Caribbean, African heritage.’ It’s all over the place. So she clearly wants to talk about this,” he concluded, despite her playing victim for being asked a basic question.

“You can’t mandate that everyone talk about their identity all the time and then punish people for asking about your identity,” Carlson further surmised before he declared, “It’s an act of aggression.”
