Hours after a white nationalist rally and violence that rocked Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller appears to have posted from her personal Facebook account that she is “sick and tired of being hit for being white.”
“It is all about making us feel like we need to apologize. I am WHITE — and proud of it! No apologies necessary,” the 6:19 p.m. post went on to say.
Miller was responding to a Politico article shared by former Tucson mayoral candidate Shaun McClusky that detailed President Trump’s response to the violence, in which he said that “we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides — on many sides.” Those comments were criticized for not specifically calling out white supremacists and other groups involved in the Unite the Right rally.
Miller did not immediately respond to requests for comment or confirmation that she wrote the post.
A quick check of the four other supervisors’ social media accounts did not turn up comments of any kind on the violence in Charlottesville.
