Virginia has become the first southern state to declare “racism” against blacks to be a public health crisis.

According to the bipartisan resolution passed in the state senate, state employees will now be mandated to take critical race theory classes, criminal laws will be reformed to avoid prosecuting blacks at higher rates, health care will be provided to illegal aliens free of charge, and tax dollars will be set aside for “community engagement across the state on recognizing racism.”

The reforms allow Virginia’s plutocratic elites to take attention off themselves and blame the perceived racial beliefs of rural whites for the rising income inequality.

In recent years, the median income of Virginia households has continued to plummet, while wealth inequality has risen.

While Democrats and some Republicans are blaming the abstraction of “racism” for this, the poorest and most neglected counties in Virginia are in fact its whitest.

In Dickenson County, which is one of the whitest parts of America with a population over 10,000 (99% white), about one in four people live below the federal poverty rate (almost double the national average).

Buchanan County, the poorest region in the state, is 97% white.

In cities like Martinsville, where the population is roughly half white and half black, the difference between white poverty (17%) and black poverty (26%) is not very significant.

According to studies produced by Virginia Commonwealth University’s Center on Society and Health, stress-related early deaths of white Virginians between the ages of 25-54 have shot up 331% from 1995 to 2014. The main culprit has been downward mobility and lack of opportunities following the deindustrialization of the state’s whitest regions.

The state’s politicians do not appear to have any interest in this crisis, preferring instead to blame middle and working class whites for the problems blacks are facing in rapidly gentrifying metropolitan areas.

It is unclear how the mostly symbolic gesture of yanking down Confederate monuments or forcing whites to be racially abused in order to keep their jobs will even materially benefit average blacks.

Virginia has been at the forefront of “criminal justice reform” and claims to be one of the nation’s safest states, but close scrutiny of its recidivism rates show that state officials are lying. A disproportionate amount of the violence is committed by blacks against other blacks, though whites are also victimized by blacks during infamous events hosted in the state like “black bike week.”

Nevertheless, leaders in the southern state continue to deliberately invert reality in order to attack whites. Last summer, Richmond police provoked laughter after they announced that the violence by Black Lives Matter rioters in their city was instigated by “white supremacists” disguising themselves as black militants. No evidence was ever provided.

While overtly allocating state support and programs based on race has generally been taboo in America, this has become normalized in the last year. Struggling white people in Virginia can expect their government to become less and less responsive to their needs and interests after this resolution.

  1. Where is the late great Joe Bageant (from western Virginia, “white trash central”) when the white working class needs him? In the grave. RIP, Mr. Bageant.

  2. ” police provoked laughter after they announced that the violence by Black Lives Matter rioters in their city was instigated by “white supremacists” disguising themselves as black militants. No evidence was ever provided.” Yup,blacks always deflect and lie onto to everyone else. blacks think every other peoples on the planet act like them.

  3. The Virginia legislature was flipped to democrat control via vote fraud in 2018. That’s how an almost totally red state (by county) got a democrat legislature. The democrats have been controlling the governor’s office via vote fraud in the northern counties and in cities, where democrats get 150% of the black vote, for about 20 years, but were never able to take the legislature until ’18.

    My district inexplicably got a democrat CIA agent as a house rep. The same kind of thing happened on the state level at the same time.

  6. The solution may be for all of Virginia’s western counties to secede and join West Virginia. Yeah, WV is a poor basket case of a state, but at least the Whites will be free to work on solving their own problems.
