Report on Va Gov Blackface College Yearbook Is Out

It’s been three months since Virginia Governor Ralph Northam appeared on television to make the public aware that it was brought to his attention that on his 1984 medical school yearbook page he had a picture of two people one dressed in blackface and the other wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood and robe.

The findings from the report conducted by the law firm McGwire Woods states that they could not determine if he was one of the two people in the picture. In addition, they said even though they could not figure out how the picture was put on his page, they also found no evidence that it was done accidentally or as a prank.

Initially, Governor Northam apologized for being in the picture. The following day he went back in front of the camera’s to say he was sure that was not him in the picture and that he was not sure how that picture ended up on his page. There were local and national calls for Northam to step down which he refused saying he could do more if he stays to show that is not who he is. The President of the Fairfax County NAACP still wants Northam to step down.

Eastern Virginia Medical School hired a former Virginia Attorney General to conduct the independent probe into the truth of who was in the photo and what was the process to get pictures in the yearbook at that time.

There’s no word what is next for Governor Northam.
