MARYSVILLE, Mich. (AP) — A city council candidate in Michigan shocked a public forum when she said she wants to keep "Marysville a white community as much as possible."
Jean Cramer made the comment Thursday in response to a question about diversity in Marysville, a city in St. Clair County, 55 miles (88 kilometers) northeast of Detroit. The Times Herald in Port Huron says she's one of five candidates running for three council seats in November.
After the forum, Cramer told the newspaper that she's not "against blacks" but believes married couples "need to be the same race."
Mayor Dan Damman, who isn't running for re-election, says Cramer's comments were "vile" and "jaw-dropping." Council member Paul Wessel says Marysville is open to anyone who arrives in the city.

"Cramer told the newspaper that she's not "against blacks" but believes married couples "need to be the same race.""
Translation: "I'm not a racist, but I'm really racist"

She isn't racist just concerned with racial purity. What's the big deal?

/s

I wonder if some of our never see racism members would call this racist?

How could they think it's racism when racism is evil for hating different races whereas this is only an opinion that would keep all those good races pure. You can always count on the fact that people who hate themselves will never see themselves as evil any more then they will be rational and have a scientific understanding of, say, hybrid vigor.

She picked low hanging fruit. The miscegenation rate in Marysville is 0.57% 0.9% . The 0.57% rate was from the 2000 census and the 0.9% rate is from the 2010 census. This is almost a 60% jump in just ten years. This is a CRISIS! for some reason.

The white population plunged over the same period from 98.18% to 97.5% of the total.

Today's Seattle news programs said that's caused a shitstorm in Marysville, WA...the city council has been LOUDLY proclaiming, "That's not OUR Marysville!"

She obviously feels safe and smug, targeting the 98% in her campaign message.

Only evenly-distributed diversity and proportionately consequent intermarriage will ever resolve this sort of racialist naivete.

I dare say the human condition cannot ever truly be solved.

Sure, if everyone looked similar THAT aspect of our tribalism would abate. To only be replaced by another. I can see blood feuds over glasses / non. Shirts, non shirts. Red vs Blue shoes. Our imagination for division is, I am afraid, ceaseless.

Racism is hardly limited to white vs black.

I'm from Marysville, Mi. That lady is an idiot and I hope she drops out of the race for city council.

And vice-versa.
Not symmetrically. Traditionally American minorities seldom respond to white racism in kind. They take the higher road.

In China, they refer to Caucasians and Americans as the "Big Noses", which you can construe as a mildly racist slur. North Koreans exhibit their own brand, and more likely have disparaging opinions of African Americans. North Korea is less a product of a communist ideology than it is the result of partition and Japanese domination since the 19th century. They adopted the traits of their occupiers and held them as the former occupiers moved beyond those traits or cultural biases.

But American Asian minorities as well as blacks or Latinos don't have any superiority complexes. Statistically, they just want to be seen as people.

Now that the demographic mix is tipping against a white majority, some of us in the latter group are in a panic about the potential consequences. We might imagine that the "others" will do unto us as some of us had done unto them.

The woman candidate in Marysville is just behaving like many in these insular unmixed communities. It's easy to be smug and take an attitude of "us" versus "them", when there are very few of "them" to face every day.

You can bet that in the homogenous community of "white" people, there will be more instances where people interact with their "own kind" and show a level of comfort in using the N word in casual conversation touching on the topic of "them". Racists who barely admit it to themselves will do this knowing that there are no Africans within earshot, and assuming that all "white" people are comfortable with aiding and abetting those types of conversations.

I've entertained myself much by expressing outrage and even threatening violence when I hear another Caucasian person use the N word in my presence under the assumption that I will feel comfortable with it.

You should see the stunned look on their faces . . . . It's hot. It's a rich experience, I say.

Sounds like an life long indoctrinated person that thinks her interpretation of the bible, what she thinks her god wants, somehow matters in regards to our law. Pretty cringe worthy performance.

Her original answer that caused the media to question here isn't too good either.

I've read a dozen reports of this story and none mention party affiliation. One can only assume she is a Democrat or party affiliation would be front and center.

There isn't antI-white racism in the US. White people are not lacking power here. There may be some antI-white prejudice, but that isn't racism.

Because they don't run with a party affiliation in local elections. Actually, your interpretation is bass-ackwards. The media has every reason to believe she's likely a republican but they refuse to speculate since she has no publicly declared affiliation.
