On a related note, I’m enjoying the hypocrisy from Democrats about how reporting on an old, allegedly uncorroborated claim of sexual assault against the Lt. governor is like, really wrong and stuff, man.

Meanwhile, the third-in-line has confessed he wore blackface in the 1980s at a 19 year-old college student. To be fair, he was dressed up as a rapper. His apology is also more sincere than Northam's.

Was there some blackface fad in the 80s that I don’t remember?

I DO remember Ted Danson getting spanked for that shit back then. So it isn’t even a case of it was no big deal at the time.

Probably amongst racists.

Ted Danson got more backlash for actually dating Woopie Goldberg. Anyways, it was a joke she shared in, but, yes, it was condemned. The context and intent demonstrated that he was not trying to mock black people.

I will be somewhat charitable to This Clown if all he was doing was trying to go as a known rapper. If you and, say, Anax's Mom had to go as "Millie Vanillie" what are you going to do? Granted, saner people would decide that "going as a different ethnicity" is a "bad thing."

The problem with "intent" back to Northam, as you probably recognize, is he did not just wear blackface, he dressed up as a "minstrel boy." He could not get more offensive.

Unless, he was dressed up as the KKK member.

I have always contended that the problem with Virginia is my ancestors did not kill enough of their ancestors in the Civil War.





Too soon?

It might be easier if we just ask what high level Virginia Democrats haven't dressed up in black face.

But remember, folks, Trump's the racist.

Also, this quote from a guy named John O'Connell reposted on Instapundit:
Virginia Democrats haven't had a stretch this bad since the third day of Gettysburg

This headline quoting Virginia Lt. Gov. Fairfax's response to charges of sexual assault:
Justin Fairfax demands respect for his accuser after reportedly saying: 'F--k that bitch'

"I mean, respect that bitch ..."

"No, I mean, believe all bitches ..."

Ha. Ha. Ha.

So apparently Fairfax's accuser is also a professor from California associated with Stanford. She even hired the same lawyers as whatshername (Blasey-Ford). Oh, and Fairfax hired the same lawyers that represented Kavanaugh.

Anyone sensing a pattern here? ;)

(I kid of course.)

In 1984, which was well after when Nixon brought all the racist Southerners over to the Republican Party. :oldman:

Not just Northam. Far from it.

Never mind my own personal experience in one little untypical provincial backwater (I refer of course to New York City), apparently blackface was all the rage among future politicians, and a lot more recently than the 1980s.

Mike Ertel resigns as Florida secretary of state after blackface photos surface
Orlando Sentinel
Florida Secretary of State Michael Ertel resigned Thursday after photos emerged of him wearing blackface as a Hurricane “Katrina victim” at a Halloween party in 2005.

The stunning development ended the former Seminole County election supervisor’s 16-day stint as Florida’s top elections officer.

...
A Republican this time. :)

OK just two data points so far, but I'm predicting a trend. 8)

Back at the OP: BREAKING: Fourth Democrat Gets Caught Up In Virginia Scandals, Knew About Sex Assault Allegations For A Year, Report Says
The series of scandals that have brought Virginia Democrats to their knees over the last week worsened after a new bombshell report was released on Wednesday night that alleges a Democratic lawmaker knew about the sexual assault allegations against Democrat Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax for over a year.

If you want to be a member of the white establishment elite (more so in the past than now) you have to be willing to signify certain values, one of which is a willingness to accept casual racism. When someone like Northam puts what he put on his yearbook page, he's playing that game. He's letting other people know that if they express their casual racism he's not going to be the guy blowing the whistle. He can be "one of the boys" who isn't uptight about casual racism. It isn't racist, you see, because it was in jest and he doesn't have a racist bone in his body and so on...

Basically the white male professional class equivalent of a gang sign. You are going to see a lot of this, especially in the south, and it is in no way going to be limited to conservatives.
