The revelation comes as the state’s Democratic leadership is in crisis, with Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring both facing calls to resign after they admitted to wearing blackface while they were college students in the 1980s.

State Sen. Tommy Norment oversaw the Virginia Military Institute’s “The Bomb” yearbook in 1968 — the same year the college first allowed black students to enroll, according to The Virginian-Pilot.

I confess to wearing a gorilla mask to a Halloween party around 1974. Please direct me to the nearest disintegration chamber.

Blackface continued into the mid 1900s with touring groups, etc.

Well, the Dems wanted to talk about Kavanaugh’s HIGH SCHOOL yearbook.

So then, these COLLEGE yearbooks should be important, too.

Bing Crosby sang in blackface in Holiday Inn and Irving Berlin wrote the number. Destroy them too?

I saw that movie!...on second thought after carefully conferring with friends, from that time in my life, I was not the one who saw that film. However, I did see Michael Jackson moon walk on TV.

Well then I don’t guess there’s any reason for a Republican to resign until legally compelled to do so.
= = = = = = = = =
Well if things go as usual, the Rs will buy up tar and feathers, run the R out of town on a rail and make excuses for the Ds THEN say the Ds should do the ‘right thing’ etc.

The D’s will extend one half of the ‘peace sign’, the Rs will try and find some more Rs to scourge.

Remember back ‘in the day’ when the Russians would arrest an American for spying and WE would arrest 5 Americans for spying.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

As a society have we become so thin skinned that we are offended by just about anything and everything? If so, we are destined to be eternally offended. It’s time to step back and reevaluate how we want to live with ourselves and others for the rest of our lives.

Democrats are scum.
But this is why they win.

They have an endless number of operatives constantly scouring about, looking for the slightest piece of information that would allow them to cast aspersions on their political opponents to counter any scandals.

Now it's a "bi-partisan" issue that needs to be dealt with in a nuanced manner.

Contrast this to the Republicans, who almost always leave their politicians twisting in the wind.

I am worried. It won’t be long, I fear. Donald Trump doesn’t wear blackface, he wears orangeface. How long will it be before...orangeface is the new blackface...

Just noticed this one is a Republican.

Funny how I just assumed this was another Democrat.

My dad goes back to WW 2, Wop, Daggo, Spic where just some of the names applied to Italian’s. He was a Natural born US Citizen, his Legal Immigrant parents were Naturalized before he was born. He fought in WW 2 under Mac Arthur, didn’t speak a word of Italian. Perfect size for Airborne.
