THE GOVERNOR ALSO WRITING IN- PART THAT COMMENTS HE'S RECEIVED - "IS EVIDENCE THAT MANY AMERICANS AND MANY VERMONTERS, STILL HAVE A LOT TO LEARN ABOUT THE IMPACTS OF RACISM IN OUR COUNTRY" (SOT)(Wright) (I don't think that he is a racist for his policy nor do I think the people that have some criticisms are all racist either) REPUBLICAN- KURT WRIGHT - SAYS HE HAS NO ISSUE WITH THE GOVERNOR'S DECISION- SINCE ááALL VERMONTERS WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR A SHOT. . .

And it is evidence that many Americans, and many Vermonters, still have a lot to learn about the impacts of racism in our country and how it has influenced public policy over the years. " Critics of the decision, have raised questions about whether or not allowing people of color in the state to have vaccine priority is constitutional. Vermont Law School professor, Jared Carter, believes it is constitutional, "the question really is: does Vermont have a compelling interest as a state, in prioritizing BIPOC community members, and I think the answer to that is clearly yes," he says.
