I voted for him.
I would not have voted for him had I seen this picture.
It may have been acceptable in Virginia in 1983 but I lived in NY in 1983 and that photo would have been as abhorrent to me then as I find it now.
I would call for his resignation.
This is not what I voted for.

So....in a meeting with black caucus last night, Ralph "Coon Man" Northam said he could not remember if he was the guy wearing blackface or the KKK hood.
He says he can't remember which racist costume he wore.
DOES ANYBODY HERE BELIEVE THIS?

We deserve better than a president who won't condemn white supremacists.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has told a source he now believes it is not him in a racist yearbook photo and, despite mounting pressure to resign, that he will not do so, according a top Virginia Democratic source who spoke to the governor on Saturday.
Northam told the source he was in touch with some of his former Eastern Virginia Medical School colleagues, who said they believed many of the pictures in the yearbook were mixed up.
Northam did not recall the picture being taken, he told the source, and said he was not involved in the production of the yearbook.
