Democrat Governor Ralph Northam is going through a crazy situation in which his old yearbook photo from 1981 was revealed and shows him allegedly wearing a blackface while standing next to someone in a white KKK robe. At first the 59-year-old admitted to it and his admission was published in the Washington Post.
“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now,” he said. “This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment.”
On the contrary, he later retracts that admission and now says that's not him in the photo, but he did blacken his face another time for a different costume. He's now claiming that it's not him in the photo, even though it was on his yearbook page. He also claims that he dressed up as Michael Jackson and blacked his face during that because it was a costume party, as per the report on Fox News.
"When I was confronted with the image, I was appalled that it appeared on my page, but I believed then and I believe now that I am not either of the people in that photograph," he said at a press conference at the governor's mansion."
Northam said the photo was offensive and racist. Yeah, obviously!
Massive amounts of people requested his resignation. People on the left and right of politics both want him out of office. Although many people think he shouldn't resign because he has another issue that will eventually run him out of office and that has to do with murdering babies.
He apparently supports late term abortions and was criticized for being supportive of infanticide.
His blackface issues aren't a big deal when he's out there supporting babies being terminated at the time of birth.
He will mostly likely be ran out of office. If he doesn't resign, then he'll be voted out in an overwhelming landslide. However, that's only if the Democrats use at least 1% of their brain and stop supporting racist baby aborters.
