Virginia Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam Tells Staff He is Staying for the Duration….

According to the AP Virginia Government Ralph Northam has informed his staff he has weathered the storm and will be remaining as governor to complete his term.

(AP 4:10pm EST) A senior official in Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s administration says the governor has told his top staff that he does not plan to resign over a racist photo despite intense pressure to step down.

The official says Northam told his Cabinet during a Friday afternoon meeting that he intends to stay. The official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Northam has faced widespread calls to step down over after his medical school yearbook page with a racist photo surfaced last week. It shows one person in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood.

Northam said last Friday that he was in the picture. On Saturday, he denied he was in the picture and said he was not immediately resigning but left his long-term fate unclear. (link)

    Let’s face it, a man arrogant enough to play God with a newborn isn’t going to feel shame about a 30 year old photo.

    Those with access to the yearbook ought to see if any of the other pages have random photos of the handful allowed that are unrelated to the person on the page.

    On the surface it seems like the right thing to do would be to resign, but a strong argument could be made why he should not.

    1. He denies its him in the photo. technically it has not been proven to be him. Should he resign because we believe it is him? By that logic Trump should resign because a lot of people really believe he IS a racist/sexist/homophobe/etc.. Same with Kavanaugh. A lot of people really do believe he did what he denies. We could get rid of EVERYONE we don’t want with that method.

    2. Even if it is him in the photo, it was in the 80s. People did that back then and didn’t have any intended malice or probably any realization it was wrong. Look at the HUGE list of celebs that have dressed in black face. We even had a movie at the box office called SOUL MAN and NOBODY said NO! We are NOT doing this! Should a person be punished now for something he/she did back when it was acceptable? I could see an argument that even though we now know its inappropriate, a person could make the same argument that he/she ALSO has grown to now know its inappropriate, and make a case he/she is even more qualified for growing, learning, changing, etc. We have no recent racist photos of him.

    3. If it is him, and he admits it is him, who is to say he doesn’t feel its something inappropriate. He was voted in my a majority of the people in VA, not necessarily with the condition that if there is a scandal that he doesn’t agree is doing something wrong, that he needs to quit. Its not like a job where he could get called in HR and get fired. Maybe the people of VA also think although offensive, is not reason to kick out their candidate. Trump was heard saying “grab em by the P…” and the people still voted him into the highest office in the land because it wasn’t enough to get people to say that’s too much. It had nothing to do with what he was being voted in for most people. So who is to say dressing in blackface doesn’t fall into the same category? We have no way of getting a count on that opinion till next election.

    4. He is correct about forever being tarnished if he steps down. He has nothing to gain by resigning, but still has a chance to redeem himself by staying in. I can almost understand his point in desperately wanting any chance to not walk away with this stink on him forever.

    Thoughts?

      Good argument, El Gordo. Not that I care one way or another. I think the DNC is also weighing in with the fact that there are no good successors to Northam, should he resign, and he might as well stay. “The devil you know……”

      El gordo;
      You make the assumption, in #2, that it IS wrong, which is buying into the p.c. crap.
      Ted Danson appeared at a roast, for his girl, whoopie, in blackface. SHE wrote the jokes for his routine.

      Halloween USED to be a time when people dressed up in COSTUMES; to be someone/something they weren’t.

      Guys dressed up in drag, priest/nun outfits, etc.

      PC KILLS humor. If we embrace their b.s., we only encourage them. A costume as kkk or an SS stormtrooper DOES NOT mean you embrace the ideology; its a COSTUME!
      I’ve seen people dress as Bill and Hillary, who definetly DID NOT support them! (They were wearing matching orange jumpsuits, and were the hit of the party!)

        You’re absolutely right. I do make the assumption in #2 that it IS wrong, but simply for arguments sake.

        In #3 I argue your point. Who is to say it is wrong? What if everyones attitude towards blackface was “OMG it’s NBD”

        I attempted to hit this from many different angles to show none of the arguments convince me he should step down.

        I could add #5..he admits it’s him and he did it because he was, is, and always will be a racist. Then I would change my answer

      Your points are well taken. I have Garland and Rooney DVDs with two of them reenacting minstrel shows that were definitely insulting stereotypes. They were still doing the minstrel shows in the 1960s. The people who did them lived long enough to be embarrassed by them as times and customs changed.

        I think you’re on to something with pointing out that they lived long enough to be embarrassed by something later. We would be pretty arrogant to think we are NOW perfect. I would be willing to bet our future selves will look back at what we are doing RIGHT NOW and be embarrassed.

        I have a hunch it might be voting FOR politicians because of their gender or race. Prasing a person for being the FIRST black this, or FIRST female that is still focusing on their race or gender.

        The statement “I voted _ a black female” is simply wrong. Placing either word “FOR” or “AGAINST” in the blank doesn’t make the statement any more or less inappropriate.

        I think in the future we will be like your example of living to be embarrassed by doing things like this now.

      Gordo—He should be condemned for his cavalier attitude about late term abortions. That is why he should be kicked out of office, too, not because he was stupid like this 30 years ago. It just goes to show how confused our moral sense has become.
