Northam Suggests The Racist Photo Scandal Could Make Him A Better Governor

Northam Suggests The Racist Photo Scandal Could Make Him A Better Governor

Days after the Northam scandal broke, Herring admitted that he had worn blackface in college. After the second allegation was made Friday, Fairfax - who stands to become the state's second black governor if Gov. Ralph Northam resigns over a racist photo - was barraged with demands to step down from top Democrats, including a number of presidential hopefuls and most of Virginia's congressional delegation.

The service in the town of Chilhowie for Lucas B. Dowell was four hours west of the political tumult in Richmond.

The allegations have surfaced in the harsh glare of the national spotlight, which was initially drawn to Virginia by a separate controversy involving Gov. Ralph Northam.

Northam, 59, said he wants to spend the remaining three years of his term trying to ensure that black Virginians have the same opportunities as whites.

"There's nothing you can do for us to forget, but we should focus more now on structural racism", she said. "There are still some very deep wounds in Virginia, and especially in the area of equity", he said.

Northam said he's asked his cabinet secretaries to come up with specific proposals to begin addressing issues of inequality, such as expanding access to health care, housing and transportation, and to begin reporting those suggestions on Monday.

There are multiple photos of students wearing blackface in the yearbook, which also contained the N-word. But he could not explain how it wound up there, or why he had taken responsibility for it. "I nearly felt like I couldn't question him because of the urgency add the importance of what we just had on the national level".

Norment went on to say he was not in any of the photos "referenced on pages 82 or 122, nor did I take any of the photos in question". He says he's left-handed. It's unclear who the people in the picture are, but the rest of the page is filled with pictures of Northam and lists his undergraduate alma mater and other information about him.

Northam is said to have argued that in medical school he found using his right hand so awkward he had to force himself to hold the scalpel with it.

"You have placed your trust in me to lead Virginia forward - and I plan to do that", said Northam, 59, who had stayed nearly entirely out of the public eye and the media since holding a news conference on Saturday to address the racial controversies that sparked Virginia's political crisis.

In his initial apology, Northam, a pediatric neurologist, said that the photo does not represent who he is now. He did however, admit to darkening his face during a Michael Jackson impression for a talent contest in San Antonio the same year.

In an article published Friday, The New York Times reported that Tyson told five friends about the assault in different degrees of detail over the last two years.

'I had the shoes, I had a glove, and I used just a little bit of shoe polish to put under my or on my - cheeks.

"Virginia really is facing the equivalent of a #MeToo moment on race, where the behavior of people in the Virginia of 30 years ago is running headlong into a very different Virginia of today", says Stephen Farnsworth, a political science and global affairs professor at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

'I look back now and regret that I did not understand the harmful legacy of an action like that'.
