Skip to comments.Vermont's governor calls his own state's people irredeemably racist
Posted on 07/10/2019 8:05:43 PM PDT by MtnClimber
In a June 21 press release, Vermont governor Phil Scott announced his decision to hire Xusana Davis, a thirty-year-old from New York City, as "the state's first executive director of racial disparity." Ms. Davis has been commissioned "to identify and address systemic racial disparities and support the state's efforts to expand and bring diversity to Vermont's overall population[.]" But it is far from clear that there are any "systemic racial disparities" to address.
Governor Scott and Vermont attorney general T.J. Donovan have vocally condemned the Green Mountain State and its inhabitants as racist, based on statistics that show that blacks are incarcerated at a higher rate than whites and are more likely to be stopped by police. But there has been no analysis of whether these disparities are due to higher arrest rates of "people of color" as a consequence of a thriving opioid crisis.
Vermont's culture is one of dairy farming, verdant mountain scenery, maple syrup, and small-town hospitality. Both the governor and the gubernatorial hopeful who may oppose him next year openly characterize Vermonters' culture as innately racist. Scott praised Donovan's Report declaring Vermont a "White Supremacy Culture" and proudly signed a law March 29 that will create a school curriculum designed to "change the underlying culture of our state."

What a great reelection slogan.
I was looking for his retirement speech to go with it.
When will all this racial sh*t stop??!? ENOUGH, ALREADY!!!
So what! Who cares?
He or ze is trying to show how woke he/ze is.
My first thought when I saw it was “Hmm, must be termed out and can say whatever he wants”
I think this acknowledgement of white supremacy is not an empty, cynical virtue signaling action. It is a sincere, deeply held, moral belief, which will make this guy MORE popular in Vermont. It is somewhat like a Christian acknowledging man’s sinful depravity, which marks him as a Calvinist adhering to orthodox Christianity. Acknowledging “white supremacy” is similarly the central doctrine of liberalism.
geez...whites have paid billions - probably trillions to make up for what none of us did - own slaves. I’m so sick of this.
Race should not matter EITHER way...everything should be on merit. Of course then the rats would lose one of their biggest grievance issues they use to keep themselves in power.
Oh, wait. Maine just elected a communist governor.
Ms Xusana Davis
Vermont is racist because it's 99% white ? FO already FFS.
She’s racist bc she’s dressed in a white jacket.
Sorry, Im from California. - whats a Vermont?
Maybe his next step is to declare jihad on white people in Vermont. Good luck with that, bud.
Phil Scott is a Communist RINO loon. He’s making sure to destroy whatever vestiges of Republicanism are left in Vermont.
So what is the crime that needs to be fixed? Can't this jackass just let Vermont's citizens live in peace?
It was the idiot liberal “women” in Maine and the clueless twenty-somethings that elected democrat Janet Mills as governor.
I voted for Shawn Moody.
Paul LePage in 2022!
You reap what you sow, commie wannabes.
