Ralph Northam is still the governor of Virginia—for now. But he’s facing increasing pressure to resign after a conservative media site unearthed a photo of a man in blackface on Northam’s page in a 1984 medical school yearbook.

Northam insists it isn’t him in the photo. And the New York Times today reported that a group of his medical school classmates is standing behind him. “We fully believe Governor Ralph Northam is neither of the individuals in those repugnant costumes,” they wrote in a letter. “We attended classes with the Governor. We socialized with him. We knew him very well.”

But even if Northam can prove he isn’t in the photo, there’s another problem: In a press conference on Saturday, Northam admitted he had “darkened” his face for fun around the same time. “That same year, I did participate in a dance contest in San Antonio in which I darkened my face as part of a Michael Jackson costume,” he said. “I look back now and regret that I did not understand the harmful legacy of an action like that.”

Northam may not have understood that “harmful legacy” back in the 80’s—plenty of people didn’t. In fact, many still don’t understand it now.

The moon walk? I've always just thought of that, be it a black, white or any other origin of person, as a VERY impressive form of dance by an even more impressive entertainer. Am I wrong in thinking that white people performing the moon walk, to me, originally by Michael Jackson, soley as a form of pure entertainment? Honest question.

Any downgrading is wrong. Choose the high road. Just live impressive and carry no offenses.

Comes back 1 week later, the Gov. Northam is off the hook. Bet if that was Trump he would have been impeached by now.

*White Privilege* is a disease and must be eradicated.

Seems pretty bad but I believe whites did it because it was a curiosity and blacks were unique in their music and dance. Pretty sad the whole slave thing but now blacks and people of color are attacking white men to the point of calling them to be lynched and dead. That in itself should be condemned but the hate has been instilled in weak minds and that seed is now planted. A lot of whites just want to live in peace and harmony period.

Why is it the race that brought disease, death and pain claim to be superior still? How could white people call black people lazy when they kidnapped and killed black people just to have them do their work for them? Why are all the people who got rich off of slavery allowed to keep the coroprations and company's they control from the slave money they made? Whay are these still the people in controll still?... Why?!!!!!!!

On Saturday hundreds of white nationalists, alt-righters, and neo-Nazis traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia to participate in the “Unite the Right” rally. By Saturday evening three people were dead – one protester, and two police officers – and many more injured.

“VICE News Tonight” correspondent Elle Reeve went behind the scenes with white nationalist leaders, including Christopher Cantwell, Robert Ray, David Duke, and Matthew Heimbach — as well as counter-protesters. VICE News Tonight also spoke with residents of Charlottesville, members of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the Charlottesville Police.

From the neo-Nazi protests at Emancipation Park to Cantwell’s hideaway outside of Virginia, “VICE News Tonight” provides viewers with exclusive, up close and personal access inside the unrest.

This episode of VICE News Tonight aired August 14, 2017 on HBO.
