Ralph Northam Denies Appearing in Racist Photo, Admits to Wearing Blackface on Separate Occasion
After getting exposed as a giant racist dicklord, Ralph Northam apologized for his blackface/KKK yearbook photo. Nevertheless, people are demanding he abort his governorship, much like his wishes for newborns. Now, desperate to salvage his career, Ralphie-boy says he didn't appear in that photo at all. Yeah, seriously.

Governor Ralph Northam said at his Saturday afternoon press conference that he has no intention of resigning and that he is not in that racist photo.
Northam was roundly condemned after the news of the racist photo on his yearbook page depicting someone in blackface and another person in a KKK robe. Many Democrats, including the Virginia Democratic party and several 2020 presidential candidates, called on him to resign.
Here's the best part of all:
But in addition to denying that he’s in the photo, the governor admitted, “I did participate in a dance contest in San Antonio in which I darkened my face as part of a Michael Jackson costume.”
"J'mon, man! Everyone here who thinks that I am the one can beat it! I would never do such a thing. Well, except for this one time, but that's beside the point. I've been framed."
One question. If Ralph has total recall of that time period, why didn't he deny it from the start? He "believes" he is not the person in that photo and he knows nothing of any racist photos. Yeah, right. In his effort to weasel his way out of this, he gave us yet another instance of racial insensitivity. Though, we need to just accept he would never do such a thing.
Nobody is buying this ass-clown's bullhickey. He's even trying to turn it around to make himself look like a crusader for equality. To spin this into a teachable moment for to help us combat the rampant racism of the Trumpers. Yeah, ain't gonna work.
