Virginia Gov. Northam Refers to Slaves As 'Indentured Servants'
CNSNEWS


quote:

(CNSNews.com) - Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D), under fire for the racism displayed in his medical school yearbook, avoided the word "slavery" in a weekend interview with CBS's Gayle King, until she corrected him. Northam told King, "It has been a difficult week. And, you know, if you look at Virginia's history, we are now at the 400-year anniversary. Just 90 miles from here, in 1619, the first indentured servants from Africa landed on our shores in Old Point Comfort, what we call now Fort Monroe. And while--" "Also known as slavery," King interrupted him. "Yes," Northam said.

It amazes me that people lack the ability to just shut up for a while. This will all blow over in a week or 2. Just shut up, dude!

Now, as a Republican, I want him to be in front of a camera as much as possible.

Tiptoeing carefully around what he says. He doesn’t want to tip his hand as to what he truly is. It’s a real wirewalking act.

If only his wife did not stop him he would have moonwalked during the first press conference.

That would have been gold.

Lordy, they were absolutely slaves, and they arrived on the Treasurer, an English privateer.

The Treasurer had taken them from a Spanish ship, if I remember correctly.

Ummm. They were all indentured servants until a Free black went to VA supteme court and was granted the first lifelong slave in America.

Facts are facts.

I wouldn’t even call it indentured servitude. All they had to do was start a war to get out of the contract

The Irish had it way worse

He needs to place a bottle of hot sause on the podium at his next press conference. As a sign of solidarity.

That is certainly accurate, legally. They were taken as slaves though, and had little say over their own fate. Unlike the English indentured servants, they did not choose it, and their periods of service were twice as long.

They were undoubtedly lucky to end up Virginia though, rather than the Caribbean where they would have been worked to death in truly awful conditions.

He is technically correct. When they arrived (the date that he was referencing), they were treated as indentured servants. It was not until years later that their status was made permanent by judicial fiat and American chattel slavery was born.

He is the dumbest governor in history - even exceeding Earl K. Long when he was running about with that stripper/whore back in the 50s. Seems like it was "Stormy ___ "

note I didn't say "in congress" - there are people in congress that are far far dummer than the gov.

The dude needs to quit talking. Hes being punished for fuvking Halloween costumes, which every human alive knows are nothing but basic jokes.
But to try to talk your way put of something so meaningless, by constantly acting like you love blacks...is stupid.
Shut up, go to work and do good things.

Someone today acting like they are offended by his college party costume, are the biggest racists around.
