Democrat in VA Race Says ‘Unqualified’ Whites Have High-Paying Jobs That Black People Need ‘A PHD’ to Get

Brandon Gillespie, Fox News, September 9, 2023

The Democrat candidate in one of the most closely watched state legislature races in Virginia said earlier this year that “unqualified” White people are able to secure high-paying jobs while Black people need “a Ph.D.” to be considered for the same type of job.

Nadarius Clark, a political activist and former member of the Virginia House of Delegates who hopes to win another term made the claim during an April 17, 2021, episode of his former podcast, “Polititalk,” when he and a guest co-host were discussing what they said was the unfair treatment of Black people by the police.

“{snip} It is ridiculous that we have to dot our i’s and cross our t’s just to have a regular job,” Clark said during the podcast.

“Our counterparts, a Caucasian, can be mediocre and still get a $100,000 job. We have to be — we’ve got to have a doctorate degree, a Ph.D., to get let in those doors. We have to be overqualified … to get half of what an unqualified Caucasian would get,” he added.
