If I understood Governor Northam’s explanation, this incident occurred around 1984. I’ve heard some people say that it was a foolish prank of a youngster. However, this “youngster” was in medical school at the time. Presently, he’s denying that the photograph is of himself while simultaneously admitting he had worn blackface as a Michael Jackson Halloween dress-up. Assuming no skipped grades or college courses, this incident would have occurred when he was in, or very near, his mid-twenties. In short, he was an adult. A young adult to be sure, but still an adult, and old enough to know better. As a result, he should face the consequences of his actions. My twenties are so far over the age horizon, as to be practically invisible. But even then, I knew blackface was offensive, insensitive, and simply wrong! And that was in the deep south before the 1980s. While I will admit people can change, whether he should resign I leave to the good people of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
