Some recent events have prompted us to change focus slightly. In early February 2019, it was revealed that the Democratic Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam, a board-certified physician, had posted inflammatory racist content on his yearbook page from Eastern Virginia School of Medicine. It pictured a white person in “Blackface” standing next to a person in a Klu Klux Klan robe and hood.
Northam originally took responsibility for the photo but never revealed which person, the one in Blackface or the Klansman, was himself. The following day, he back-tracked, claiming not to know how that photo got on his yearbook page. https://blackdoctor.org/528357/medical-racism-and-its-impact-on-health-outcomes/
