Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who apologized for being in a yearbook picture wearing blackface, then said it wasn’t him, and then admitted he had worn blackface to a dance contest around the same time, still has his job.
On top of his other duties, Northam promised he’d go on a “reconciliation tour” to make amends to those who were offended and to educate himself about diversity and racism. It turns out he’s actually going through with it and will stop at a black college Thursday to show how woke he is.
After a calamitous few weeks, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam heading out on what he's calling a reconciliation tour starting Thursday, Feb. 21 at historically black Virginia Union University. https://t.co/8KzKi3s8IC

Why would he go out and remind people what they obviously forgot about?

Because this is the same guy whose wife had to tell him not to moonwalk during a press conference.
On top of resignation? That’s pretty responsi— Oh, he’s not leaving? Screw him.

I remember when criticizing reckless government spending and ballooning debt got you labeled a racist….now, you can have the nickname 'coonman' as long as you're a Democrat!
