New Hampshire is too white (94 percent according to the U.S. Census Bureau) for progressives. The state is now looking for innovative ways to diversify the state by actively seeking out “people of color” to enter their labor force.
According to the Union Leader, one African-American engineer — who was recruited out of state by Ever Source Energy — left the company because he couldn’t find a social scene (an African-American social scene) or a barber.
Christine Martine, a principal at Beech Street School, said she’s been unable to hire African-American teachers or support staff because of New Hampshire’s “lack of diversity.”
Martine said: “Do I have a person of color who our children can look at and see themselves? No.”
“That engineer was the first person I heard about, but I’ve heard from other people, ‘Yeah, I’m having the same problem.” New Hampshire is the third whitest state in the country just after Vermont and Maine.
Last week, representatives from state agencies and nonprofits including the NAACP gathered at Eversource Energy in Manchester to kick off a “conscious effort” to diversify the state, but there’s just one glaring problem Doc Thompson pointed out on Monday’s episode of “The Morning Blaze.”
