SERIOUSLY: Northam To Make Amends By Focusing On Racial Equality And Reading Alex Haley’s Novel Roots

Buzzfeed News reports:

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, still facing calls to resign as governor a week after the revelation that his page in a medical school yearbook features a racist photograph, is now tightly focused on coming up with plans to survive.

His office has begun to explore how it might recalibrate Northam’s legislative agenda to focus closely on race and equity, sources close to the governor tell BuzzFeed News. “Now that he knows better he is going to do better,” a Northam adviser said.

Additionally, his advisers have assigned the governor homework: He’s begun to read Alex Haley’s “Roots”, and “The Case for Reparations,” the seminal essay in The Atlantic by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Hit the link for a lot of nonsense about which hand Northam uses to hold beer in the now-infamous yearbook. The guy in blackface isn’t using his beer hand!
