The former paper of record has, incredibly, stooped to another race-baiting low, this time bashing the state of New Hampshire for being too white.
“New Hampshire, like its neighbors Vermont and Maine, is nearly all white. This has posed an array of problems for new arrivals, who often find themselves isolated and alone, without the comfort and support of a built-in community,” wrote Katharine Q. Seelye in The New York Times.
Seelye relayed the story of a woman who moved away from Lynn, Massachusetts to New Hampshire and found herself in an “ethnic vacuum.”
“‘I went from being able to speak Spanish every day to not speaking Spanish at all because there wasn’t anybody to speak Spanish to,’” said Mrs. Celentano, who was born in Colombia to a Colombian mother and Hungarian father, according to The Times. “’The only person I spoke Spanish with was a cleaning lady and she moved back to Colombia.’”
How sad. This is the part where all white people are supposed to feel guilty for an immutable characteristic with which they were born.
“New Hampshire, like its neighbors Vermont and Maine, is nearly all white,” the piece says. “This has posed an array of problems for new arrivals, who often find themselves isolated and alone, without the comfort and support of a built-in community.”
This pure anti-white propaganda runs contrary to everything the left has told us we are supposed to believe about “diversity.” If a white person felt “isolated and alone” in a Colombian community, she would be called a racist, and told to get out and mingle – that learning about a different culture would positive for her. But when the roles are reversed, and a Colombian moves to a white community, it is a heartbreaking tragedy that she feels as such, and the whole community needs to change to suit her. Whatever happened to just accepting people for who they are?
The underlying notion, of course, is that The New York Times believes that white people do not have a culture. European heritage and tradition is lost on the urban liberal elite (and mostly white) staff at the Times.
“[New Hampshire’s whiteness] has also posed problems for employers in these states, who find that their homogeneity can be a barrier to recruiting and retaining workers of different ethnicities and cultural backgrounds,” wrote Seelye, citing precisely zero statistics to prove her claim.
But apparently the problem with New Hampshire’s whiteness is so pressing that 100 government officials and business leaders got together to discuss it.
“New Hampshire’s future economy is dependent on our ability to set ourselves up as a welcoming state,” Will Arvelo, New Hampshire’s director of economic development said at the meeting. “We do a great job marketing ourselves around travel and tourism. How do we use those tools to attract talent?”
If attracting talent to grow the economy is the question, lowering taxes is the answer. Since when did the race of the populace become a factor in the economic equation?
New Hampshire falls somewhere in the middle of pack in terms of state tax burden on citizens. Citizens of Maine and Vermont, also cited as “too white” by the Times are among the top five highest-taxed America.
The bogus argument that lack of “diversity,” rather than cost of living, is the biggest barrier facing economic growth in the Northeast is simply anti-white scapegoating. Insinuating that economic growth is slow because the white population in the Northeast is not “welcoming” is insulting.
People of all races are flocking to Southern states like North and South Carolina – which are richly diverse – because they can afford to both live and eat in those places, not because the white people there are any more or less “welcoming” than they are in Northeast.
Just another day at The New York Times.
Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Will Begin Teaching at Texas State University in Spring 2021
The Failed Senate Candidate Will Start Indoctrinating College Students Next Year
Former Congressman and failed Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke will start teaching Texas politics at Texas State University during the spring 2021 semester, according to an announcement by the Department of Political Science on October 15, 2020. Although his hire has not been finalized, O’Rourke will join the department to teach an online class.
Political Science Chair Ken Grasso said he talked about potential course material with O’Rourke. The former congressman said he has taken a great interest into Texas politics recently.
“He originally approached people in the administration… and expressed an interest in teaching,” Grasso commented. “I was thrilled. He’s got a unique take on things with his experience as a congressman and as [a] senatorial candidate and even a presidential candidate. So we’re very happy to have him.”
In addition, Grasso claims O’Rourke wants to reach out to young adults and is motivated to teach, above all, during a “crucial time for the state and the country.”
Grasso is of the opinion that the addition of O’Rourke would bring a lot of energy to the political science department.
“I don’t know that so much it’s going to increase enrollments; it’ll certainly increase visibility,” Grasso opined. “That’s always a good thing. We tend to sometimes to get lost in the shadow of other institutions.”
If the Wuhan virus pandemic dies down by spring time, Grasso stated that O’Rourke could potentially do in-person classes. The department aims to limit O’Rourke’s class size in order to promote stronger interactions with students.
Grasso cited O’Rourke’s experience in Congress and the El Paso city council as unique factors that will help students understand Texas politics.
“He’s an actual practitioner out there,” Grasso stated. “You don’t know a man until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins, and none of us have walked in his moccasins.”
For now, O’Rourke has plans of teaching for the spring 2021 semester but Grasso is optimistic that the university can forge a long-lasting relationship with the former congressman. He believes that this could be “the beginning of a long-term relationship.”
The fact that a darling of the Left and ex-politician is set to be quickly integrated into a major university in Texas just shows how consumed by leftism most American universities have become. O’Rourke will do a fantastic job in propagating political correctness, much to the detriment of his students’ learning experience.
