We all know about the controversy with the Governor of Virginia and the "Black" stuff.

Now you would think the Governor's Wife would at least tone down the problem right ?

Wrong.

Seems the Virginia First Lady has some explaining to do as she apparently handed some cotton to a few Black students who were on a "tour" of the Governor's Mansion !!!!!!

Can't make it up if you tried 🤣



Virginia first lady under fire for handing cotton to African American students on mansion tour

A Virginia state employee has complained that her eighth-grade daughter was upset during a tour of the historic governor’s residence when first lady Pam Northam handed raw cotton to her and another African American child and asked them to imagine being enslaved and having to pick the crop.

“The Governor and Mrs. Northam have asked the residents of the Commonwealth to forgive them for their racially insensitive past actions,” Leah Dozier Walker, who oversees the Office of Equity and Community Engagement at the state Education Department, wrote Feb. 25 to lawmakers and the office of Gov. Ralph Northam (D).

I seen a white person behind the counter at kfc hand fried chicken and a grape soda to a black customer.

Did she only hand it to the AA kids, or all the class, and the MSM latched onto half the story?

They wouldn't do that, would they?

She does that with every class that visits. This one was just extra sensitive, because her husband is CoonMan.

A state employee complained that the wife of embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam reportedly handed the students cotton and asked them “if they could imagine what it must have been like to pick cotton all day.”


What a dumb snip.

Even if it was innocent.

The optics are snip.

Did "Coon Man's" wife toss it on the ground in front of the kids and order them to "PICK IT up"?

So... are black Americans going to stop wearing cotton clothes?
Just asking. Not saying they should.

Even if it was intentional...

This is garbage news.

Are the kids offended?
Are they oppressed?

Honestly they've probably never seen corn before.

Nonsense out of control media is the only training behind this.
It's like those idiots a few years back assigning a name every time it snowed more than a half inch up north in the winter.

Why am I getting a sense of deja vu about this, I feel like this happened a year or two ago..weird.

Seriously don’t care

Does the complaining parent not open asprin because they don’t want to pick the cotton?

Does every Jewish parent go nuts when their kid gets a gold star on their paper??

Does the cafeteria not offer spaghetti because it might offend the Italian kids, thinking that’s all they eat


It must be tiring being offended all the time

I wish this was just a non-story, but this day in age, unfortunately, YOU CAN'T DO THAT! What in the world was she thinking? Especially in light of what her husband is going through. This lady is an IDIOT. She deserves all the bashing she can get. This can not happen with all the whiny little snowflakes that cry foul at the least little things. I grow tired of hearing about this garbage in the news.

I took a plantation tour outside New Orleans and the docent, dressed up in full southern belle attire, told the group that 'slavery wasn't too bad' since you got fed and housed.

They also got free healthcare for lash marks, free education on picking cotton, told what they could eat and drink, do...they never ate cows...and almost never flew in jets.

Slavery was every socialist's 'Utopia'.

They're all dummies ! Seriously, Coon-Man's wife's awkward attempt to connect with the black student and the students over reaction to it...geez

It makes perfect sense for the people taking a tour of a cotton plantation to be able to see and feel raw cotton, now handing to the black kid, not very bright !
