"We're making gains in the majority community": Thanks, John Kasich, for reminding us just how racist you can be

Apparently the success of Kasich's programs are only measurable by "the majority community" (white people)

During his MSNBC town hall interview Wednesday night, Ohio Gov. John Kasich quietly breached the divide between ignorable bigotry and active racism.

Asked by moderator Chuck Todd to expound on a recent report ranking Ohio the sixth worst state to raise a black child, Kasich touted his infant mortality prevention program's success in the state's white communities.

"So I don’t know about all that study," Kasich continued. "And the community itself is going to have to have a better partnership with all of us to begin to solve that problem with infant mortality in the minority community, because we’re making gains in the majority community."

In short, the success of a program devised to solve a problem that disproportionately affects minorities is measured by its relative effectiveness with white people, according to Kasich's argument.

He's such a non-factor that his racist apologism went largely unnoticed by the MSM — which probably says more about the high bar for reportable hate speech set by his opponents.
