MISHAWAKA, Ind. — The Penn Harris Madison (PHM) Board of School Trustees announced who the board will be interviewing to fill two vacant board positions. The board has decided to move forward with Robert W. Hyde, despite his openly radical and racist views.
REAL News Michiana profiled Hyde earlier this week. Hyde is a radical leftist with a grotesque social media feed that discusses strippers, shows naked women and promotes radical theories on race. He was also featured in an interview in which he promoted Robin DiAngelo’s radical book, White Fragility, while saying he would not even talk to white people about race unless they first agreed with him on racism in the country.
Hyde was one of 14 applicants for the vacant seats that opened up after two recent resignations. The board is responsible for interviewing and selecting new members to finish out the time left on the terms until the next election. This morning, the board announced moving forward with 8 candidates, including Hyde. The interview process starts on November 29th. You can view the board documents with his name below.
In an interview with South Bend City Church from June of 2020, Hyde tells the interviewer why he agrees with analysis from radical critical race theorist, Robin DiAngelo.
“She explains racism very differently, saying racism is not an event, it’s a system in which we live in.” Hyde explained. “She goes into a little more detail saying racism has to have a power system to support it.”
In the interview, Hyde also explains he wont have racial dialog with white people who disagree with him about race. Remember, this is a man who wants to be on the PHM School Board.
“Am I trying to prove racism exists? Because if that’s the direction that we’re going, I’m not going to engage.” He said. “Because trying to prove the existence of racism becomes a dead-end.”

Hyde’s social media feed is also full of racial and sexual commentary. He made his Twitter account private since RNM’s story about him on Monday. However, you can view a small example of screenshots showing his commentary — including a comment that appears to be referring to the not-guilty verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.
According to his resume, Hyde is currently the Vice President of Investments — Private Client Advisor for JP Morgan Chase in Elkhart. He also has a long history of volunteer work. You can read his resume and cover letter submitted to PHM here.
