The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus issued a statement Friday night in response to a photo that surfaced of Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and another person wearing blackface and a KKK outfit.
An image in Northam’s medical school yearbook surfaced Friday, which depicts one man dressed in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan costume. But it remains unclear as to which one is Northam.
The article goes on to state the following:
“As was stated on the House floor today, the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus has no permanent friends, no permanent enemies, only permanent interests. We are still processing what we have seen about the Governor but unequivocally say that what has been revealed is disgusting reprehensible and offensive. We feel complete betrayal,” the statement began.
“The legacy of slavery, racism, and Jim Crow has been an albatross around the necks of African Americans for over 400 years,” it continued. “These pictures rip off the scabs of an excruciatingly painful history and are a piercing reminder of this nation’s sins. Those who would excuse the pictures are just as culpable.”
