Say, it's been a few weeks since Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's blackface yearbook scandal. What's he been up to? Let's find out...
The wife of Ralph Northam (the same lady who told her husband not to do the moonwalk at a press conference after he said he dressed up like Michael Jackson) gave an African-American legislative page (a middle school student) a ball of cotton and asked, "Can you imagine being an enslaved person and having to pick this all day?"
Um..... Whhhhat?! This lady had enough insight to nix a blackfaced moonwalk impersonation at a press conference but didn't know she shouldn't give cotton to a little black kid before telling her to pretend she's a slave?
In a letter to Pam Northam obtained by WAVY-TV the unidentified eighth-grader said the Virginia first lady's "comments and just the way you carried yourself ... was beyond inappropriate, especially considering recent events with the governor."
According to the Washington Post the girl's mother wrote a letter to lawmakers and the governor's office that Mrs. Northam's actions "do not lead me to believe that this governor’s office has taken seriously the harm and hurt they have caused African-Americans in Virginia or that they are deserving of our forgiveness."
Northam's spokesperson denied the first lady had singled the black students out when she led them on a tour of the mansion but that's not what other people are saying.
Pam Northam said: "The Historic Kitchen should be a feature of Executive Mansion tours, and I believe it does a disservice to Virginians to omit the stories of the enslaved people who lived and worked there."
Oh, so she's not denying she gave cotton to little black kids to teach them a lesson about slavery?
Well, there ya go, folks.
Last week Northam canceled the first appearance of his blackface apology tour at Virginia Union University after black rights activists staged protest.
Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's wife, Pam, is just as stupid (and racist) as her husband.
