And here it is folks, one of the dumbest things I have ever read:

"Growing up as a kid [in the 1960s], there was no racism," Miller adds. "... I never experienced it."

I hate to say that this is a typical Trump supporter, but I think it is.

Trump campaign chair says there was 'no racism' before Obama's presidency

One of Donald Trump's Ohio campaign chairs has a very unique, revisionist view of American history that she is proudly sharing with the world.

Mahoning County campaign chair Kathy Miller, who is white, told the Guardian that there was "no racism" in the 1960s and if black people fail in this country, it's their "own fault."
"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 told the Guardian.

"Growing up as a kid [in the 1960s], there was no racism," Miller adds. "... I never experienced it."

Ah, yes. Much like gravity, ultraviolet light and dark matter, racism doesn't exist unless you can see it with your own eyes.
"I don't think there was any racism until Obama got elected. We never had problems like this ..." Miller says. "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."

She doubles down by adding that black children "had the same schools as everyone else" (false), extra benefits to go to college that "white kids didn't have" (gross oversimplification of affirmative action), and that lower turnout among black voters is due to "the way they're raised" (voter turnout in Ohio in the last two presidential elections was higher among black voters than white ones).

"When do they take responsibility for how they live?" Miller demands.
The video is worth watching if only for the expression on the face of the poor interviewer, who at one point nicely asks Miller if some might find her comments offensive.
"I don't care," Miller says. "It's the truth."

Going to all-white private /prep schools and traveling there in a private limo may have clouded his vision.

Must have been a different 1960's than many of us grew up in? I didn't realize that there could be more than one 1960's. Guess we learn a new reality each day from Trump & Friends.

Trump Ohio County Campaign Chair Resigns After Racist Comments


She may have resigned but Trump's comments about African American life never being as bad as it is today and that inner-cities are worse than Afghanistan are just as misinformed.

He'll get his walking papers in November.
