The median income of black Vermonters has dropped sharply in recent years. Aggressive political groups falsely argue that disparities in wealth prove racism. Actually, these disparities will continue to increase the more Vermont welcomes impoverished BIPOC refugees and immigrants here. It is “inequitable” to slander Vermonters as racist for disparities which arise by virtue of welcoming poor black and Latino people.
Please weigh the common sense of these facts and arguments, and stand against those who manipulate truth to denigrate and shame decent Vermonters and their ancestors for partisan power!
