One thing is clear. The Democratic party is and always will be the party of Jim Crow. No matter how hard the dems try to make their party about “Inclusion” and “Equality”they will always be the party of racism and bigotry of anyone who act, think, and vote differently.
A photo has surfaced of Virginia Democratic Governor Ralph Northman wearing either a Black Face or a Ku Klux Klan costume in a year book from 1984 at the Eastern Virgina Medical School.
Northam, a pediatric neurologist, graduated from the Norfolk medical school in 1984 after earlier graduating from Virginia Military Institute.WaPo
The page is labeled Ralph Shearer Northam, along with pictures of him in a jacket and tie, casual clothes and alongside his restored Corvette.
It shows two people, one in plaid pants, bow tie and black faced, and the other in full Klan robes. Both men appear to be holding beer cans.
The person in black face is smiling. Beneath the photo is a writeup about Northam listing his alma mater, noting that his interest is pediatrics and giving a quote: “There are more old drunks than old doctors in this world so I think I’ll have another beer.”
Democrats have yet to denounce Northman or have asked him to step down. One Democrat came to the Governors defense.
A Northam ally, Senate Minority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax) defended the governor.WaPo
“His whole life has been about exactly the opposite and that’s what you need to examine, not something that occurred 30 years ago,” said Senate Minority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax). “While it’s in very poor taste, I would think there is problem no one in the General Assembly who would like their college conduct examined. I would hate to have to go back and examine my two years in the Army. trust me. I was 18 years old and I was a handful, OK? His life since then has been anything but. It’s been a life of helping people, and many times for free.”
Where is the outrage? Democrats have a history of sweeping racism, sexism, homophobia, misogyny & much more under the rug while chastising normal Americans for using “words” they deem wrong. The real question is when will 2020 Democrat Candidates denounce Northman? Kamala Harris? Corey Booker? Castro? Pocahontas?
