Ralph Northam yearbook page shows men in blackface and KKK robe

By Marie Albiges and Gordon Rago
Staff writers

NORFOLK



A photo from Gov. Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook shows two men, one in blackface and one in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood, on the same page as the governor.

The photo, which The Virginian-Pilot obtained a copy of Friday from the Eastern Virginia Medical School library, comes from the 1984 yearbook, the year Northam graduated.

On the half-page set aside for Northam, there is a headshot of him in a jacket and tie, a photo of him in a cowboy hat and boots and a third of him sitting casually on the ground, leaning against a convertible.

The fourth photo on the half-page has two people, one wearing white Ku Klux Klan robes and a hood, the other with his face painted black. The person with the black face is also wearing a white hat, black jacket, white shirt with a bow tie and plaid pants. Both are holding canned drinks.

It’s unclear who the people in costume are.

The governor’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday afternoon.

Under the photo of the men in blackface and the Klan hood are listed Northam’s alma mater, Virginia Military Institute, and his interest: “Pediatrics.” His quote is listed as “There are more old drunks than old doctors in this world so I think I’ll have another beer.”

The photo came to light after a week in which the Democratic governor came under fire for his comments about a bill introduced by a first-term Democratic lawmaker that would have loosened restriction abortions in Virginia.

Conservative news outlet Big League Politics first posted the photo at around 2:15 p.m. Friday with the headline “YEARBOOK: Ralph Northam In Blackface & KKK Photo”.

About an hour later, the Virginia GOP caucus Twitter page tweeted, “@governorva needs to explain this immediately.”

Northam’s comments earlier this week were on a bill that would have loosened restrictions in third-trimester abortions. State law says they are legal — and it doesn’t specify up to what point in the third trimester a woman can have an abortion — but Del. Kathy Tran’s bill would reduce the number of physicians that need to sign off on abortions from three to one.

It would also change the standard for having a third-trimester abortion — from a physician declaring that continuing the pregnancy would result in death and “substantially and irremediably impair the mental or physical health of the woman” to just “impair” a woman’s mental or physical health.

The bill, which Democrats have tried to pass in the General Assembly in recent years, was killed in a subcommittee.

On a radio show, Northam — a child neurologist — defended Tran’s bill, saying it was “blown out of proportion.”

“When we talk about third trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother with the consent of the physicians — more than one physician, by the way — and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus that is nonviable,” he said.

Explaining what would happen in such a case, Northam made comments that were soon seized on by political opponents and others: “The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

It never ceases to amaze me how much Republicans cry and cry their ****ing eyes out, wondering when the media will pay attention to a Democrat doing something bad, as it leads coverage on the supposedly "liberal" media outlets

This guy really reaped the whirlwind on behalf of his party.

I’m tempted to feel a little sorry for him, mainly because I think he was mischaracterized on his late term abortion comments, but he’s as guilty as the rest of the party for fueling the fires of racism so screw him.

If given their druthers, the people who were backing Northam yesterday would actually prefer Fairfax sitting in his chair anyway. So they'll run ol' Ralphie out on a rail, install Fairfax in his place and start building him up as the next Obama - a true progressive superstar or something.

Just watch - this is not gonna go how Republicans think it's gonna go. And the left will use it to curry morality points and earn a card that they'll play the next time someone goes hunting up a Republican's past.

And they won't be dumb enough to burn their capital on a situation where there's another Republican that will just slide into the chair.
You may be right. But I wouldn't be surprised if a Pro-lifer pulled this Alinsky stunt either just for payback.

I think it's fairly clear that this is a purposeful leak from someone politically active who has long been aware of the existence of the photo and was inspired to release it due to recent events.

Highly unlikely a random person happened upon this photo for the first time serendipitously this very week.
