Mark Robinson, North Carolina’s first black Lt. Governor, recently spoke at the North Carolina Republican Party State Convention, and a portion of his dynamic speech has been circulating online. In the clip below, Robinson talked about the sacrifices Americans made during the Islamic terrorist attacks on our soil on September 11, 2001.
People ran away from the burning World Trade Center Towers, Robinson said, but police officers and firefighters ran toward those buildings. They ran to their deaths to help others. They saw trouble and knew that they were needed.
“That’s got to be us in this day right here,” Robinson said. “We’ve got to run to the trouble, folks. And what is the trouble? The trouble is the Biden administration that’s seeking to turn this country into a socialist hellhole. The trouble is Antifa, the ones that roam the streets and want to beat you into submission. The trouble is Black Lives Matter that claims to care about the lives of black people but has turned a blind eye, while violence in black communities [is] taking lives at a genocidal rate.”
Robinson said we’ve got right on our side, and there’s no reason to be afraid. We have to take the challenge “dead on.” He reminded the audience that as Americans, we share our heritage with a people who make sacrifices. We share our heritage with a strong and brave people determined to hold onto their freedom and the freedom of future generations. Watch the full clip below.

Robinson testified before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties in April about voter ID and election integrity. Despite America’s history of slavery, he said, what our ancestors endured led to a man like Robinson becoming the first black Lt. Governor of a state and a black man serving two terms as president of the United States. These and many other accomplishments “add up to an incredible story of victory.” But leftists compared Georgia’s common-sense voter ID law to Jim Crow. Are blacks suppressed by bullets, bombs, or nooses? No, Robinson said. Leftists claim black Americans are suppressed because they have to present photo ID to vote.
