He can't erase his blackface picture in his yearbook but he can take down a memorial arch. This clown is disgusting.

Northam's a jerk.

Straight from "neither of the people in that picture is me" to "gotta overcompensate to make up for this."

Jerk.

He's sucking up to the ones that voted him in which is SOP for his party.

Why not just re-dedicate it? I can understand wanting to remove Jefferson Davis' name, I may not agree with it, but I can understand it. If the arch has no significant tie to Jefferson Davis other than having his name on it, why not move his name to a historical plaque and rename it to whomever, or Freedom Park, or something? No need to demolish an arch that's been in the community for 60+ years.

I'd like to see VMI (his alma mater) tell him they would like their diploma back.

The black-hating, baby butcher is at it again, now in my neck of the woods. Nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt at covering up his extreme racism.

The JD Memorial Arch is in the Fort proper, not on the outside land that was conveyed to the city of Hampton. The fort walls and interior fort is a National Historical Park run by the US Park Service and I don't frankly see how the mismanagers on the Fort Monroe Commission have any authority to remove the arch.

Jefferson Davis was imprisoned in the cells that are found just below the arch. There are definite ties.

I've learned a lot about Jefferson Davis this morning.

https://www.britannica.com/biography/Jefferson-Davis

quote:
from wavy.com:

Northam's office sent a letter to a member of the Fort Monroe Authority Board of Trustees Thursday calling for the removal of the Jefferson Davis Memorial Arch.

In the letter, Northam says it's critical to address the issue before a series of events in August concerning the 400th commemoration of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans.


I don't think I understand what effect removing the arch would have on the commemoration, though.

Anthony Johnson ( b. c. 1600 – d. 1670) was a black Angolan who achieved freedom in the early 17th-century Colony of Virginia after serving his term of indenture. He was one of the first Negro property owners and had his right to legally own a slave recognized by the Virginia courts.

Is it not about time to get over this racist BS? But then the democraPs would have nothing to stir up the resentment and hatred against the white "establishment".

I did a quick read, I saw that mentioned. I'm talking about the arch, specifically. It wasn't erected until the 1950's or 1960's (I can't recall at this moment). It's not like Jefferson Davis hung slaves from the arch 150 years ago.

Instead of spending a ton of cash to remodel a historical site why don't they just pull the letters off the arch? You can't erase history, but they could spend $5,000 on some new letters and a crane rental and solve this in an afternoon without pissing off everyone. Put a plaque at the base that explains the arch, who it was originally dedicated to, the decision to rename it, the re-dedication details, and be done.

So I guess I do not understand why anything needs renamed.

Stupid ramblings of a stupid bigot and requires no follow up.

The good news is that he is toast politically. The mystery to most of us is how such a dumb bastard made it through medical school.

The news today is that he vetoed a bi-partisan bill having to do with minimum sentencing guidelines because according to him, it unfairly targeted blacks.
This mea culpa tour of his is becoming increasingly more nauseating. What's interesting to me is that most medical school graduating classes have between 50 and 100 graduates. With that many people in his class, somebody has got to remember the party and who the guy in blackface is. Who ever that somebody is apparently isn't talking.

One of the latest polls shows he is more popular with blacks than he is with whites. Go figure!

He's damaged goods. I doubt he will have his party's backing for any post in the future.
