“Whites Only” Comment Shocks Michigan Council Race

(Marysville, MI) — A woman running for a city council seat in a St. Clair County community is under fire over a controversial comment made at a public forum. “The Times Herald” in Port Huron reports Marysville city council candidate Jean Cramer responded to a question about diversity by saying she wants to keep the community, quote, “as white as possible.” She went on to say she’s not “against blacks” but doesn’t believe in interracial marriage. Mayor Dan Damman called Cramer’s remarks “vile” and “jaw-dropping.”
