The VERY-Gradual ‘Darkening’ Of New Hampshire — But It Remains Among The WHITEST In Nation.

by Anura Guruge


I happened to see the above edition of our local rag, ‘The Laconia Daily Sun‘ & it cracked me up.

Yes. Yes. Yes. We sure have come a long, long way. But, it has been a very slow march & New Hampshire still remains blindingly white.

I can HONESTLY say, hand on heart, that I really cannot remember the last time I saw a non-white person!

It was probably when I was at Fort Williams, in Maine, on March 22, 2021. I KNOW, for a FACT, that I have NOT see a non-white person in New Hampshire in over a month!

I settled in New Hampshire in 1986 — so even 4-years earlier than the person cited at the start of the above article. There really were NO non-whites at the time. As I have chronicled here I was such a novelty that I was ‘followed’ 24×7!

In 1999 a lady in Meredith told me that I was the FIRST non-white person her 8-year old daughter had met! 8-years old. WOW.

Yes, there are quite a few Indians as you go SOUTH; South of Manchester. But, many don’t venture north of Concord. Too damn cold for them.

But, things are changing. That is for sure.
