DAILYKENN.com -- Only white-majority Maine boasts a lower crime rate than Vermont. That's may change. Vermont's governor, Phil Scott, has hired a black woman to be the state's diversity boss. The intent appears to darken the avereage skin tone of Vermon residents. Scott is a Republican.
FBI statistics reveal that over fifty percent of the nation's homicide are committed by blacks who comprise about 13 percent of the nation's population. Most of the homicide are committed by black males ages 18 to 49 who comprise about six percent of the nation's population. That is, about half of the nation's homicides are committed by a demographic that makes up six percent of the overall population.

Governor Phil Scott today announced the appointment of Xusana Davis as the state’s first executive director of racial equity. Davis will work with state government agencies and departments to identify and address systemic racial disparities and support the state’s efforts to expand and bring diversity to Vermont’s overall population.
“Xusana’s leadership and experience are a perfect fit for this position, and she will be a valuable addition to our team,” said Governor Scott. “In this role, she will be critical to our work to ensure state government is demonstrating a full commitment to equal opportunity and treatment for all Vermonters, our visitors and our employees. This is an important step forward in our efforts to improve state government and strengthen our communities, both socially and economically, through real equality that values diversity.”
Davis will oversee a comprehensive organizational review to identify systemic racism in each of the three branches of state government, and inventory systems in place that engender racial disparities. Additional responsibilities include reviewing and making recommendations regarding fairness and diversity policies; reporting, gathering and analyzing race-based data to determine the nature and scope of racial discrimination within systems of government; developing and conducting training to improve systems for inclusion in state government; and working with the chief performance officer to develop performance measures.
