Here we go again. Democrats wonder why accountability to AA voters exist after begging for our votes

This really isn't a difficult or hard thing. When you cater to and get elected because of a certain crowd, you take on different responsibilities than someone who ran on values counter than that.

1. Exactly right

I totally agree. I live in SW VA, I want him to resign. Let our Lt. Governor take over. We are better than Republicans. Sorry, he knew this was out there. He can be a doctor with this in his past but, not a Democratic Governor in the South. Do we really expect AA, or any democrat for that matter to support him?

2. Yeah. I think he'll be gone by next week.

The VMI yr book and the Med School yr book are too much. His life experiences may have taught him better, snd he may have become better, but this is a freaking massive NO

4. Exactly.

I'm grateful for an African American segment of this forum. Some of our counterparts just...aren't quite as understanding.

5. This argument is the most compelling I've heard

I was wrestling with the whole "this was a long time ago" versus "kick him out" debate until I hit a statement similar to this one: Northam won with the AA vote.

That really put the issue into perspective. Thank you.

6. There is an bubbling underground issue, unknown to many melanine deficient

There is a god awful history of white doctors & POC. Fast examples tuskegee experiment & untreated syphilis, Henrietta Lacks & her stolen cells, used in cancer research, too numerous to talk/tell about WOC & prenatal care & childbirth.
A racist white doctor..
.aw hell no.

7. And a racist college

It's not only the photo and what that says about two students, but about any organization that considered that photo appropriate for a yearbook. That tells me the entire community around Northam was racist.
