Vermont’s Governor Phil Scott, an “enlightened” RINO, previously condemned all Vermonters as backwoods racists and all Trump supporters as white supremacists, joined those who label all Vermont police as racists based on manipulated statistics, and also exempted Black Lives Matter protesters from COVID restrictions while shutting down conservative political rallies. Now he is calling Vermonters racists yet again:
Vermont Gov. Phil Scott has condemned the “racist response” to his administration’s decision to make Black, indigenous, and people of color of any age eligible for a coronavirus vaccine before residents of other races.
As Thomas Sowell explains in Discrimination and Disparities (p. 23), age is a better determinant of wealth than race. In Vermont this is evident in numbers that show BIPOC residents have lower home ownership and incomes than older whites — age explains those differences better than race (though, another factor is that significant numbers of BIPOC have relocated to Vermont, including from foreign lands as impoverished immigrants, and this has greatly skewed Vermont’s statistics — but that is another story). But in Vermont, this clear factual evidence is swept under the ideological carpet in favor of narratives that paint whitey as ubiquitous oppressor.
Scott perceives he is “rescuing” BIPOC people when in fact he is killing old white Vermonters using a warped ideology that also distorts scientific evidence. Old white Vermonters are more at risk of mortality than young blacks, and Vermont’s demographics show that blacks are younger than whites (again, those new arrivals). Providing COVID vaccinations to the old in priority to the young is consistent with sound medical science; providing it to young BIPOC in preference to old whites is the opposite, and bases medical decisions on a racist ideology that is increasingly revealed to cause more new inequities than it eliminates (see Thomas Sowell, The Quest for Cosmic Justice).
