Trump Campaign Coordinator Forced To Resign After Racist, Anti-Obama Remarks

Kathy Miller, a Trump campaign coordinator in Mahoning County landed herself in hot water after The Guardian published an interview on Thursday in which she said racism was nonexistent “until Obama got elected” and called African Americans “people with guns shooting neighborhoods.”

“I don’t think there was any racism until Obama got elected. We never had problems like this,” Miller said before adding:

“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 perpetrated on America. And if you’re black and you haven’t been successful in the last 50 years, it’s your own fault …When do they take responsibility for how they live?”

After the video surfaced on Youtube, Miller was forced to resign. It’s the latest evidence that Donald Trump’s phony minority outreach effort is failing miserably.

Her comments, however, are not surprising. Many Trump supporters subscribe to this kind of bigotry, an alternate reality where the African-American community is, as Trump has said repeatedly, riddled with uneducated, violent, and impoverished people. It’s a false reality meant to appeal to people’s worst instincts.

These racially motivated attacks have, indeed, happened under this Obama’s presidency. But is it people like Donald Trump and Kathy Miller who have perpetuated them.
