New Hampshire is 94% white. It is now trying to figure out how to change that. https://t.co/aVB7YkkKFD

Because “Diversity is our Strength™” it is a problem that New Hampshire (and Vermont and Maine) are still mostly white.
Here’s the thing, there can be many reasons that a region has a certain ethnic population. It could be benign, i.e. patterns of human migration, or it could be malevolent, i.e., enforced discriminatory practices.
The upper Mid West for example, has a large population of people of German and Norwegian heritage because the upper Mid West had a climate and condition that north central Europeans found very familiar and comfortable in.
There is little to indicate that New Hampshire is currently 94% white because of segregation. The demographics of the region seem to be the result of human migration patters, driven by the economy, geography, and climate of the region, i.e., not a lot of heavy industry, cold and rugged terrain, etc.
If people who are not white want to move to the region for jobs or economic opportunity, fine. I hope they are treated fairly. But the attitude of the NYT seems to be “there are a lot of white people there and we need to thin out their numbers.”
The problem is that “there is a lot of [ethnic group] there and we need to thin out their numbers” has historically ended in mass graves.
Just ask the Native Americans, or the Armenians, or Jews, or Tutsis, or Chinese in Cambodia, or Kurds, or Yazidi, the list goes on.
Even if you don’t intend to ethnically cleanse a region (though I believe that deep in their heart of hears every Leftist really does want to cleanse the world of people they don’t agree with) it is the same attitude that genocidal governments and mobs have had in the past. You just want to “thin out the population” in a more gentle way.
The New York Times of Walter Durante didn’t have a problem with the undesirables being thinned out in Russia and The New York Times of today doesn’t have a problem with the undesirables being thinned out in New Hampshire.
