Kathy Miller, campaign chairwoman for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in Ohio’s Mahoning County wrote:
I don’t think there was any racism until Obama got elected. We never had problems like this. Now, with the people with the guns, and shooting up neighborhoods, and not being responsible citizens, that’s a big change, and I think that’s the philosophy that Obama has perpetuated on America.
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. 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.
Growing up as a kid (in the 1960s), there was no racism, believe me. We were just all kids going to school.
I never experienced it (segregation and the civil rights movement). I never saw that as anything.
