Hey Fark Board, The Virginia Governor is calling
quote:

Va. Gov. Northam’s medical school yearbook page shows men in blackface, KKK robe

RICHMOND — A photograph on Gov. Ralph Northam (D)’s medical school yearbook page shows a man wearing blackface next to another person in a Ku Klux Klan robe.

The image is in a 1984 yearbook from Eastern Virginia Medical School on a page with other photos of Northam and personal information about the future governor.

Northam, a pediatric neurologist, graduated from the Norfolk medical school in 1984 after earlier graduating from Virginia Military Institute.

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.”



Ralph Northam (blackface) was nicknamed "Coonman" in MedSchool

Ads ran for him in the gubernatorial race featured a pickup truck flying a Confederate flag and a bumper sticker for his opponent, Republican Ed Gillespie, chasing minority children. Video

This dude is now saying that he DID wear Blackface at one point in
the mid 80s so he could attend a Michael Jackson Lookalike Dance
Party. The reason I know this guy is lying .... in the mid 80s
Michael Jackson was whiter than Northam was already !
