FLASHBACK: Ralph Northam: White Supremacists Are Not Welcome in Virginia

"We're not going to condone that kind of behavior, to go home, and don't ever come back to the Commonwealth of Virginia."

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) finds himself in very hot water after The Virginian-Pilot published a page Friday from Northam’s medical school yearbook which “shows two men, one in blackface and one in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood, on the same page as the governor.”

The Virginian-Pilot reported:

“On the half-page set aside for Northam, there is a headshot of him in a jacket and tie, a photo of him in a cowboy hat and boots and a third of him sitting casually on the ground, leaning against a convertible”

“The fourth photo on the half-page has two people, one wearing white Ku Klux Klan robes and a hood, the other with his face painted black. The person with the black face is also wearing a white hat, black jacket, white shirt with a bow tie and plaid pants. Both are holding canned drinks.”

“It’s unclear who the people in costume are.”

In 2017, while speaking at what appears to be a church following the Charlottesville riots, then-gubernatorial candidate Northam declared that white supremacists “are not welcome in” Virginia.

“Terry McAuliffe, Mark Herring, and I were there in Charlottesville to tell these people that they’re not welcome, that we’re not going to condone that kind of behavior, to go home and don’t ever come back to the Commonwealth of Virginia,” Northam said.

Northam has not yet addressed The Virginian-Pilot story.
