In an interview with The Guardian Wednesday, the Donald Trump campaign’s chairwoman in the crucial Ohio Mahoning County said that she never saw any racism in America from the time she was a teenager in the 1960’s until the election of Barack Obama.
“I don’t think there was any racism until Obama got elected. We never had problems like this,” Kathy Miller told The Guardian.
“If you’re black and you haven’t been successful in the last 50 years, it’s your own fault,” Miller continued. 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.”
When asked whether some would find her comments offensive, Miller responded simply, “I don’t care, it’s the truth.”
