Another Top Ranking VA Democrat (The AG) Admits To Wearing Blackface
So Northam the Governor is in hot water for wearing blackface at a party. Fairfax (who is black it must be added) is in potentially hot water because of sexual assault allegations. Now the Attorney General, Mark Herring is in trouble for wearing blackface.
If all of these guys get taken out, and it very unlikely that Fairfax steps down - at least at this point, the governorship goes to the Republicans. That would be some serious political justice considering the Dems painted the GOP candidates as racists in the last election.
One can rest assured that somehow, some way, the Dems will keep the governorship however.
It is worth noting also what would be being said at MSNBC and CNN at this moment had these fellows been Republicans. Hell has broken loose in Virginia, politically speaking, but the fiasco would have been multiplied by 5 or 10 if they had been GOPers.
"In 1980, when I was a 19-year-old undergraduate in college, some friends suggested we attend a party dressed like rappers we listened to at the time, like Kurtis Blow, and perform a song,” Herring said. “It sounds ridiculous even now writing it. But because of our ignorance and glib attitudes – and because we did not have an appreciation for the experiences and perspectives of others – we dressed up and put on wigs and brown makeup.”
Said Herring, "This was a onetime occurrence and I accept full responsibility for my conduct.”
Hey, I liked NWA in college but I wasn't sporting around like Ice Cube at parties.
But hey Mr. Herring...These...Are....the Breaks....
