Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro called on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) to resign after Northam acknowledged that he was in a photo that surfaced Friday featuring two men in blackface and KKK garb.
Castro, in a tweet, condemned Northam’s behavior as “racist and unconscionable.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“It doesn’t matter if he is a Republican or a Democrat,” he wrote. “This behavior was racist and unconscionable. Governor Northam should resign.”
See Castro’s tweet below, as well as tweets from other “left” leaning voices.

Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government. The Governor of Virginia should step aside so the public can heal and move forward together.

No, you can’t wear a black face or a white hood and lead a state. Not now and not ever. But we are merciful people. Governor Northam should step down, seek forgiveness, and through good deeds earn the respect of the African-American Community.

I believe in personal forgiveness & public repentance. That is not the same as deserving the confidence bestowed in our elected officials. The picture was horrifying and deserves a clear response. Ralph Northam should resign. https://t.co/cZBbzYeMFQ

If @RalphNortham is one of the two people pictured in the highly disturbing, horrific photo wearing either blackface or a KKK hood – or if he selected or approved of its use on his yearbook page — he should immediately resign. There are no excuses for such a racist display.
