Trump campaign chair in Ohio says there was no racism before Obama. Wait, what?

Courtesy of The Guardian:

Donald Trump’s campaign chair in a prominent Ohio county has claimed there was “no racism” during the 1960s and said black people who have not succeeded over the past half-century only have themselves to blame. 

Kathy Miller, who is white and chair of the Republican nominee’s campaign in Mahoning County, made the remarks during a taped interview with the Guardian’s Anywhere but Washington series of election videos.

“If you’re black and you haven’t been successful in the last 50 years, it’s your own fault. You’ve had every opportunity, it was given to you,” she said. 

“You’ve had the same schools everybody else went to. You had benefits to go to college that white kids didn’t have. You had all the advantages and didn’t take advantage of it. It’s not our fault, certainly.” 

Miller also called the Black Lives Matter movement “a stupid waste of time” and said lower voter turnout among African Americans could be related to “the way they’re raised”.

Well it's a good thing the Trump campaign is not attracting racists anymore.

Believe it or not that was actually too much even for the Trump campaign and Miller was forced to resign:

“My personal comments were inappropriate, and I apologize,” Mahoning County chair Kathy Miller said in a statement. “I am not a spokesperson for the campaign and was not speaking on its behalf. I have resigned as the volunteer campaign chair in Mahoning County and as an elector to the Electoral College to avoid any unnecessary distractions.”

Before making this statment Miller was actually doubling down on her remarks and ch alleging journalists to give her examples of racism in the last thirty years.

In other news Trump had talked about introducing a nationwide stop and frisk policy, in order to combat crime, even though a federal judge found it to be unconstitutional.

Yep, I just have no idea how Trump keeps attracting these racists to his campaign.

    This woman is a looney-tune and obviously filled with hate and racism.

    Outstanding that she resigned - even more so outstanding because Trump's team requested it! They know her words made Trump look horrible as have so many other things about him!

    Vote for Hillary Clinton in November!

      Looney. I had a friend who was some color and was good friends with a white girl. The girl told my friend her Dad was coming to visit and told her you can stay away or if you stop by my Dad may say many things, as he is racist. Just wow.

    Here comments were "inappropriate"?!? Is that all?

    How about plain out factually wrong and unsupported in practically every sense of the word?!!

    How depressing and frightening to realize that too many people think she's not wrong.

    I do sometimes despair for our country....

    Note to self: I must double my efforts to speak out and inform and motivate those who don't see the dire importance of this election!

    I doubt that it was actually too much for the Trump campaign; more like because she spoke out in an interview. I can almost guarantee that Trump and his staff and volunteers, top to bottom, feel the exactly the same as Miller. They're just told not to vocalize it.

    That's right, there was no racism before President Obama and America's race problem is black racism against whites.

    If you don't believe me, ask the flotsam at the pee pond.

      @Dakota Got Married to the Wasilla town bicycle(everybody has ridden it) Sunday School produces people like her and your beloved Palins. How's your silly trolling business going?

    3. Anon @ 4:34 I have no love for the Palin's, they're deplorable. I will however call out the vile and hateful comments that some of the month breathers make on here. This post had nothing to do with the Palin's, yet you had to take it there. Is that you Maria?

    "A bust out scheme is one where a business gets credit from companies for a project. The project makes money for a time which the owner of the business siphons off into his personal accounts and then files for bankruptcy protection for the business, leaving his creditors unpaid. It is a fairly common ploy. "
    "Research has established he owes in excess of $600,000,000 to the Chinese."

      Trump is probably looking to get money from Russia to pay the Chinese.

      You know, like how white trash will apply for new credit cards to pay off the old ones? I'll bet Bristol has a wallet full.

    Breaking: Arrest Warrant Issued for Tulsa Police Officer in Shooting Death of Terence Crutcher

    An arrest warrant has been issued for Tulsa, Oklahoma police officer Betty Shelby, who will be charged with first-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of Terence Crutcher. Crutcher, an unarmed 40-year old Black man, was shot with his hands up, according to video.

    “A warrant has been issued for her arrest,” district attorney Stephen Kunzweiler said at a press conference minutes ago. He also said, as Raw Story reports, “arrangements are being made for her surrender to the Tulsa County Sheriffs Department.”

    Trump Is Now Openly Begging Debate Moderators Not To Fact Check Him

    1. Anonymous12:43 AM

      I hope he has chronic IBS from now through the debates from being such a coward.

      I still think he'll find a way to dodge them all, except maybe the last one since Wallace has already said he won't fact check.

      Yeah, he wants to "argue it out" because Mr. Excuse me Excuse ME! will out shout and talk over Hillary, filibustering the entire debate and shutting her down so she can't get a word in edgewise to call him on his fucking lies. That's exactly the kind of debate he wants. He wants a free for all like the primary debates where he could lie, name call and dominate the entire thing by screaming and never shutting the fuck up.

    New Ohio Trump chair is a black woman who slammed the Donald as ‘deplorable’

    When Donald Trump’s campaign chair in northeast Ohio went viral after blaming President Barack Obama for racism and crime in black neighborhoods Thursday, it created an opening in Mahoning County.

    Ironically, that job now goes to Tracey Winbush, a fierce opponent of Donald Trump before his official nomination to be the GOP’s presidential candidate. According to The Guardian, Tracey Winbush is on record saying she has previously been “offended as an African American” by Trump and admitted in the past she had “bashed the crap out.” Winbush is also on record saying that she believes Turmp has “denigrated the Republican party.”

    The Trump campaign made the announcement that Winbush was their new chair on Thursday after previous chair Kathy Miller resigned.

    Ohio reporters Michelle Everhart-Sullivan, Jessie Balmert and Henry J. Gomez noticed a curious disappearing act not long after Winbush was named. Previously tweeted anti-Trump messages attacking the Republican nominee began to disappear.

      She was pro-Kasich before he dropped out and has apparently scrubbed some anti-Muslim tweets from her account.

      Boy, the Republicans can sure pick them.

    Here stands another example of an abused and brow beatin woman. No racism before 08? Really? Women like this must conform to the old man's views or else fight. I have noticed this with trump supporters. The women are afraid to speak their mind. Another form of abuse and mental illness.

    I wanna know exactly how madame Lilly Snow White got the county named after her Mahoning anything with two legs?
    And I love the nationwide stop and frisk idea. Lets start in New York with Ivanka and Melania, they don't look american enough.
    So snowflake resigns and Donald doubles down on racial profiling. It's a wash.

    1. Right. Pretty much a wash, A.Winecooler.

      What fails to kiss my grits is her comment that "if blacks haven't made it in the last 50 years, it's their fault."

      Well, Ms. Kathy Miller, you haven't exactly rocked this earth either with your poverty level real estate listings. No wonder you say you are not discriminatory with clients. I would call that chick a certifiable pecuniary bitch.

      And in actuality, all of her comments could very well be applied to the Wasillibllies Tea Party and their ilk.
      Or the poor white displaced coal, steel and oil workers? Bet that did not occur to Kathy M. Miller.
      Never will.

      Makes my resolve to go forward and freakin' redeem what we 60's/70's hippies started. A shit storm of "Hey! This ain't computing."
