A picture from Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook surfaced on Friday showing two men, one in a KKK hood and robe and one in ‘blackface’ on the same page as Northam.
The photo was first published by Big League Politics on Friday and later confirmed by other outlets such as WaPo and The Virginian Pilot.
One half of the page shows Ralph Northam wearing a suit jacket and a tie, a photo of him in a cowboy hat and boots and another of him leaning up against a convertible.
On Saturday Governor Ralph Northam said the photo was not of him and Friday was the first time he saw the photo in blackface.
Photos of Northam at medical school show him standing with a man in the same plaid pants as the KKK-blackface photo.
Here is a Northam friend in the plaid pants in a regular college shot — And then in the blackface shot.
The pants were featured in another Northam college shot.
Ralph Northam is on the left.
But the man on the right is wearing the same plaid pants as the blackfaced fellow in the yearbook.
The pants somehow made it on Northam’s yearbook page.
Keith Matthews is the plaid pants. Northam is taller than him. He can’t be the KKK guy. Whatever. I just roll with it. Drama for them is fine by me. pic.twitter.com/B3ZHuGa4eV
