You are correct , I am "not even American" , but I am a citizen of US and that gives me right to cancel your vote. Cheer up.

Trump supporter. I'd guess fourth quartile.

^^^^^^^^

That guy is a moron, but TBH every candidate has morons supporting it.

I do have to bring attention to this woman though. She's a campaign chair for Trump: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/sep/22/trump-ohio-campaign-chair-no-racism-before-obama?CMP=twt_gu

“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 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.”

Miller also dismissed the racial tensions of the 1960s, when she said she graduated from high school. “Growing up as a kid, there was no racism, believe me. We were just all kids going to school.”

Asked about segregation and the civil rights movement, she replied: “I never experienced it. I never saw that as anything.”

Miller added: “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.”

Clearly that woman has never heard of redlining, eh?

She apparently never heard of segregation either.

Since she's describing her own experience and she's from Ohio, which wasn't segregated, why would she?

Trump wants to have stop and frisk go national. As a solution to black on black crime. I'm sure they'll love that.

Because everybody else has.  Her statements are fucking ridiculous.  Also, factually, you're wrong.

Yeah, yeah, I know, redlining and jim crow were basically the same thing, it was terrible everywhere, so people who were born in 1995 can riot and loot and murder each other and it's our fault.

Ohio wasn't segregated? Then why was the Ohio Civil Rights Act of 1959 passed?  Why was the  1965 Ohio Fair Housing Act needed?

A quick googling says the "Ohio Civil Rights Act of 1959" was an employment (anti) discrimination law and the Fair Housing Act was, I assume, a housing anti-discrimination law. Both of those prohibit discrimination by private individuals and businesses. Just because they passed those laws doesn't mean the state was segregated before they were passed. It doesn't even necessarily mean the discrimination they prohibited was legal before they were passed.

Though, like I said, I guess you can loosen up the definition of segregation from laws to a de facto situation until you can include Ohio and Alabama in the same category. That's the idea behind the redlining shtick, isn't it?
