Maine Candidate For Governor Says Maine`s Whiteness Is Bad News

According to Big League Politics, Mark Eves, a Democratic former Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives who is now running for governor in 2018, stated in a speech before a large crowd that “Maine’s whiteness is bad news” and that “Maine is going to be in trouble if it can’t attract a more diverse population”. Any anti racist should justifiably be disgusted at such a statement and had this statement been made about any other group of people there would be a backlash to no end. It would be all over the news, civil rights groups would be protesting and he`d be demanded to resign. Anyone seeing the issue here?
