Democrat Governor Ralph Northam is in a whole lot of trouble right now.
First, he came out in support of third-term abortions. Not good.
Now, Ralph has a problem involving racism dating back to his medical school days.
Northam apologized but said he will not resign.
From Fox News:
Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam apologized Friday for appearing in a “racist and offensive” photo on his 1984 medical school yearbook page that showed one man dressed in blackface and another in a KKK robe.
Northam – who has been under fire this week for comments made about a third-trimester abortion bill in his state – admitted to being one of the people in the photo, though it’s not clear which costume he is wearing.
Northam: “Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive.”
“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now.”
Here’s the photo:
Here’s Northam saying he won’t leave…
My fellow Virginians, earlier today I released a statement apologizing for behavior in my past that falls far short of the standard you set for me when you elected me to be your governor. I believe you deserve to hear directly from me. pic.twitter.com/1rSw1oxfrX

“I know they all look alike.”
Those are the six words twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton uttered about black people.
Just imagine, for a second, if a Republican said this.
There would be hysteria; pandemonium; outrage.

Is this not racist?
From The Hill:
Clinton during the back-and-forth also said she believes “what’s often called political correctness is politeness.”
“It’s respecting the diversity that we have in our society,” she continued. “The Democratic Party is a much more diverse political party, attracting people who are African-American, Latino, LGBT … And I don’t think it’s politically correct to say, we value that.”
“I don’t want to go around insulting people, painting people with a broad brush,” she said. “That’s childish.”
Is Clinton gearing up for a third presidential run? All signs point to…potentially.
“We’re going to talk about 2020 in a minute — do you want to run again?” [Recode’s Kara] Swisher asked.
“No. No. Well, I— well, I’d like to be president.”
“Look, I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021, there’s going to be so much work to be done.”
