Political chaos in Virginia as 4th top official faces questions

A Virginia Republican has joined a growing list of Democrats under fire for past racially insensitive photos and costumes. Virginia Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment was the editor of Virginia Military Institute’s 1968 yearbook, which includes photos of students wearing blackface and people holding Confederate flags. Norment did not take responsibility for any of the racist content.

Again, as I said before, it's not a problem that people dressed up 40 odd years ago. This is fashion police.

'Blackface' is just another tool used by the media and Liberal Blacks to control White people. There is nothing wrong with it.

So, is white face bad too? Wasn’t there a couple of movies where black actors made up to look like whites?

I don't understand what's so racist about this whole thing. Will dressing up for halloween be racist or some other kind of "ist"? This is getting ridiculous.

Interesting that all the sources used are pillars of the regressive left. It's almost like they are obsessed with identity politics.

This guy apparently just edited the racist stuff I mean I feel like that’s probably not his fault since he didn’t do it himself but it’s still fucking hilarious that every Virginian politician is insane

How did the republicans lose this past election? They had every advantage yet they lost to the blackface rapist... supposedly.

Getting a little worried those 40 year old pictures of me smearing chocolate pudding all over my face as a two year old may come back to haunt me...

Where did you draw the line? Should blacks stop wearing clothes? I have no issue with white face and therefore have no issue with black face. Sometimes it's ok to dress up...

Just wait till we get to the 7th top official. "Well, back in 1964, his cousin's friend's roomate's husband worked at a place where his boss's brother in law allegedly wore blackface once. So he's out. NEXT!"

Blackface is a legitimate act of racism for those of you who seem a bit confused. I know we live in a time where everything is racist, even hats, so the term racist has lost its meaning, but blackface was a means of portraying people of color very derogatory way. it was not just typical stereotyping, it was more malevolent than that. For the people who lived through it, it was and still is extremely insulting.

I legitimately cant tell if this is people from the far left, far right, or just 4chan that is looking up peoples past and trying to stir up as much trouble as possible. thankfully it's just Virginia but I have a bad feeling we're going to see a lot more of this...
