Democrat running for VA House claims black people need ‘a PhD’ to get jobs ‘unqualified’ whites get

A black Virginia House candidate is facing mockery and derision over his blatant racial grievance mongering.

Appearing on his former podcast, Polititalk, two years ago, Virginia House candidate Nadarius Clark, a Democrat, claimed white people can obtain high-paying jobs even if they’re “unqualified,” but black people have to have a Ph.D. to get the same job, according to Fox News.

“I refuse to have to teach my kids how to be a perfect person when that doesn’t exist. It is ridiculous that we have to dot our i’s and cross our t’s just to have a regular job,” he said.

“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.

He continued by calling for a “change in social norms.”

The backlash to his unearthed comments has been big, with critics urging others to vote for Clark’s competitor in the race, Mike Dillender.


So who exactly is this schmuck?

“Clark was first elected in 2021 but resigned from his seat this year after moving to run for reelection in a new district, in accordance with Virginia law, following the House of Delegates district map being redrawn,” according to Fox News.

“He now faces Republican and retired Navy Capt. Mike Dillender in the race for the 84th District, one in which both parties have poured considerable money and could ultimately decide which party controls the House of Delegates in the battleground state.”

He is, of course, a raging leftist, as evidenced by his love for racial grievance mongering, not to mention his support for the Tennessee three.

Recall that earlier this year, three rogue Tennessee legislators joined rowdy pro-gun control protesters in disrupting official proceedings after a leftist “transgender male” committed a mass shooting. Two of three were temporarily expelled for the stunt. Because the two were black, the expulsion predictably triggered outrage from the left.

And not surprisingly, Clark joined in the outrage, writing a column for The Hill defending all three legislators, particularly the two black ones. In the piece, he echoed the same sort of race-based grievances he’d spouted years earlier.

“I also know firsthand the skepticism with which many — not all, but many — people met my candidacy and service. Assuming I was too young, that I needed more life experience, that I needed to wait my turn. That my refusal to cede to corporate interests was the result of naivety rather than a deep-seated commitment to serving my community and my values. I know what it’s like to be a young progressive Black man trying to serve and speak truth to power,” he wrote.

“There are so many ways that Black men are silenced and I am saddened and angry, but not at all surprised, that the Republican-led Tennessee legislature took this extraordinary step. But I also know that my brothers Reps. Jones and Pearson cannot and will not be deterred. They will continue to fight the obstacles put in their way. I stand in solidarity with them, their communities, and the brave activists who are quite literally fighting for their lives. We will not be silenced, and we will not be defeated,” he added.

Much like his podcast remarks, his piece in The Hill attracted massive backlash.
