Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam tweeted a statement today:
Two years after white nationalists descended upon Charlottesville, we continue to witness increasing violence that is rooted in vile racist ideology. We must remain vigilant in rejecting the dangerous, divisive rhetoric that incites and attempts to excuse these acts of hate.
— Ralph Northam (@GovernorVA) August 12, 2019
Northam would no doubt like to move on from all the reports earlier this year about what’s shown in his medical school yearbook, but it doesn’t sound like many have bought all of his spin over the photos:
We still don't know whether this guy is the blackfacer or the Klansman in his medical school yearbook photo. https://t.co/GgaMm73yjU
