Virginia’s First Lady handed out cotton to African-American students during tour of the Governor’s mansion

February 28, 2019

  This really is unbelievable in today’s day and age! It is being reported that, as if the racist Governor of Virginia did not have enough problems of his own, Virginia’s First Lady handed out raw cotton to African-American students during a tour of the Governor’s mansion and told the students to imagine being a slave and working on the grounds. Here is more:

A Virginia state employee is accusing Virginia first lady Pam Northam of giving her eighth-grade daughter and another African-American student raw cotton and telling them to imagine being slaves during a tour of the governor’s mansion.

“The Governor and Mrs. Northam have asked the residents of the Commonwealth to forgive them for their racially insensitive past actions,” Leah Dozier Walker, director of the state education department’s Office of Equity and Community Engagement, wrote to legislators this week, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

“But the actions of Mrs. Northam, just last week, do not lead me to believe that this Governor’s office has taken seriously the harm and hurt they have caused African Americans in Virginia or that they are deserving of our forgiveness.”

According to Walker, Northam singled out the only African-American children on a tour earlier this month that included about 20 young people who had served as pages during the state Senate session. She was reportedly describing past work by slaves who picked cotton on the grounds of the governor’s mansion. 

  Well, that is quite an odd thing to do isn’t it? What would make a person think of such a thing and even if you did come up with something like this what would make you think it was a good idea? It sounds like she was longing for the days of old…

  And the kicker is this JUST happened, this is not something from the past which can be explained away by youthful ignorance. This actually happened after the recent blackface pictures came to light. Stay classy Virginia…

    When do they bring in the grief counselors? Gimme a break already. I despise this governor as much as any sane person should but it’s not like the woman chained the kids to the radiators and whipped them.

      Another one.
      I think its neat how they were graced to make a song about it – regardless of the evil people who mistreated and extorted them. Notice they even include the Lord 🙂
