A racist who hopes to be elected as a councilor was condemned for telling a meeting that she wants to keep her town as white as possible. Jean Cramer, 68, told a forum in Marysville, Michigan, that she would like to ‘keep Marysville a white community as much as possible’ when asked if Marysville should strive to be more diverse.

Speaking last Thursday added: ‘White, seriously, no foreign born.’ Cramer went even further when asked to clarify her comments afterwards, by launching a stinging attack on interracial marriages.

A racist who hopes to be elected as a councilor was condemned for telling a meeting that she wants to keep her town as white as possible. Jean Cramer, 68, told a forum in Marysville, Michigan, that she would like to ‘keep Marysville a white community as much as possible’ when asked if Marysville should strive to be more diverse.

Speaking last Thursday added: ‘White, seriously, no foreign born.’ Cramer went even further when asked to clarify her comments afterwards, by launching a stinging attack on interracial marriages.

Despite her hate-filled remarks, Cramer also insisted she wasn’t racist, saying: ‘But as far as me being against blacks, no I’m not.’ Cramer claimed she would be happy to have black neighbors – but only if they maintained their property to her satisfaction.

Rival Mike Deising condemned her remarks, telling WXYZ: ‘Just checking the calendar here and making sure it’s still 2019’ And the town mayor himself, Dan Damman, also condemned Cramer’s remarks. He said: ‘That kind of racist, unapologetic rhetoric has no place in our city. ‘And I would say that it’s flatly rejected by not just the vast majority but virtually all of our residents.’
