Virginia Democrat Governor Jeremy Northam's Racial Reconciliation Tour Takes a Strange Twist When His Wife Hands Out Cotton to African American Students and Implores Them to Imagine Being Slaves

So these are the lessons we have to learn due to Jeremy Northam's wearing of blackface in the 80s.

A Virginia state employee has complained that her eighth-grade daughter was upset during a tour of the historic governorís residence when first lady Pam Northam handed raw cotton to her and another African American child and asked them to imagine being enslaved and having to pick the crop.

"The Governor and Mrs. Northam have asked the residents of the Commonwealth to forgive them for their racially insensitive past actions," Leah Dozier Walker, who oversees the Office of Equity and Community Engagement at the state Education Department, wrote Feb. 25 to lawmakers and the office of Gov. Ralph Northam (D).

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


Northam's office and one other parent of a child who was present said the first lady did not single out the African American students and simply handed out the cotton to a group. But the incident highlights the scrutiny and doubt that envelop the governor as he tries to push past racist incidents from his past and ignore continued calls for his resignation. His first attempt at a "reconciliation tour" failed last week when the student government at Virginia Union University asked him not to attend a civil rights commemoration there.

Of course, if he did that, he wouldn't be a Dem.

them to imagine being enslaved and having to pick the crop.

---

Again, $5000 says it's the first time the vast majority of the group had ever seen, much less touched, raw cotton, and instead of viewing it as a genuine educational opportunity with an unspoken but very clear and distinct line to the past, it's racism.

F*ck 'em because Virginia blackface whatever, but still.

Racist Democrat governor of Virginia tweeted it's hope that someday VA will have a black governor, and he'll do everything possible to make that happen.

And then Gov Racist Northam tweeted in honor of MLK he "has a dream" that someday there'll even be an African-American president!

45 I think maybe her point was that, due to the invention of the cotton gin, their ancestors only had to pick cotton, and not separate out the seeds. Progress is a good thing.

Thanks to Eli Whitney, slavery did not die out, it became too lucrative.

Thanks to Jim Crow and Lyndon Johnson, their people remained secure and in their proper place on the Democrat plantation.

MAny many years ago in college, one night, I was about to propose to my girlfriend when my roommate Joseph barged into the room out of nowhere, tripped and fell over, breaking a glass table with his face. Totally ruined the mood. Now, I didn't know Joseph THAT well, don't even remember where he was from, but let' just say I put my plans on hold to help him through his injuries.

Joseph had gotten big glass shard in his eye, making him completely blind in that eye. He was walking around with one of those cotton pads on his eye for a couple of months. Then suddenly, he disappeared, along with my girlfriend

Apparently they'd bonded during the time after his injuries, and eloped together , left me behind without as much as a note. I tried to track them down, but never could.

In conclusion, if it hadn't been for cotton eye Joe, I'd have been married a long time ago. Where did you come from, where did you go? Where did you come from, cotton eye Joe?

I agree.

I like that Northam is getting heat over the blackface thing, because he's a race-baiting tool. But what are we supposed to be offended about? Mrs. Northam asked a black kid to imagine something they've never experienced?

Do little Jewish kids, upon visiting the Holocaust Museum, not get asked explicitly or implicitly to imagine going through those awful times?

Do little Native American kids not get asked to imagine having to march the Trail of Tears when they visit the Trail of Tears Museum?

Do little Mormon kids not get asked to imagine being forced out of their homes and march into the snow with only a few provisions when they visit historical Far West, MO?

Yes, it's become a catch-22. If you serve regular lunch food (sandwiches, pizza) then you are being insensitive to people of other cultures and food allergies/specifications. However, if you serve ethnic food it is either cultural appropriation or a racist insult ("Oh, you think just because I'm Mexican I must like tacos, stupid white ppl!").

Quite a bit, actually, but that's about as far north as one can reasonably go, and the temps made cotton more susceptible to the boll weevil. By the mid or so 1900s, supposedly less than 500 acres were planted in the Commonwealth.

Well, kinda. And my family is old South so I get it, but the better position, of course, would have been to NOT go to that BBQ joint.

When I was in SC I was in the Guard with someone even more old South, and he and his parents were at the drive in at Maurice Bessenger's Piggy Park (the original in Columbia) and a black family drove up, and someone inside got on the PA and said "we don't serve your kind here."

So the guy's Dad pressed the button and said "you don't serve me, either." And they drove off.

I have a friend from CT who lived in NY for a while. We went out to breakfast to a soul food joint in Brooklyn and I ordered grits with my meal. They were done quite well.

She had never had them and asked to try it. I of course agreed and she took a spoonful and did that thing you do with grits (no chewing, just sort of munging), swallowed, and paused for a good 30 seconds. Her reaction? "Well, they don't have this in Connecticut."

439 I read a very touching story this morning about a young couple who became pregnant. Sadly, their OB/GYN told them that that babies lungs weren't fully formed and she would die soon after delivery and suggested abortion. They said no and went through the delivery. They name their little girl Hope and she lived for 90 minutes before passing away. They explained that those 90 minutes were precious as they held and loved their little girl. So wonderful to read about the courage and love this couple have for life in a world gone mad.

Late to the thread but, in case no one else has pointed this out, showing these kids raw cotton would NOT be educational in any "distinct-line-to-the-past" sense.

Virginia is not and never was a cotton state. You might as well hand out cotton in Ohio.

If you wanted to play the pretend-you're-a-slave game in VA, you should show people tobacco leaves. And of course, you should point out that whites grew and picked it too.

All you are doing otherwise is reinforcing the current cartoon-level narrative of slavery.

Posted by: Moron Robbie - Water Bottle Despot at March 01, 2019 12:01 PM (xyung)

I wish the Northam's gone but this is a mostly stupid controversy. The kitchen that was used when the Governor's Mansion was built, which was also the slave quarters for the mansion, has become part of the mansion tour as an educational experience. They have agricultural products laid out as part of that. ALL the children, white and black, handled the cotton.

The part of this that is still stupid is Virginia did not grow a great deal of cotton at all... we are too far north... and even if we did, it is super unlikely that that picking cotton would have been part of the slaves' experience at the Governor's Mansion. If they had wanted an authentic educational experience for Virginia, they would have been handing around tobacco leaves. But cotton-picking is the stereotype for slaves so...

477 in time I'd think they could fix most of the problems with driverless tech.... they should be able to stay in lanes in bad weather BETTER than humans, once all is fixed. Till then they should keep them off the road in bad weather.

Same with avoiding accidents, snow, other challenges ... computer could make near instant decisions, evaluate more parameters, more accurately than a human could. But that might be several versions away from where they are now. Hacking should be (relatively) easy to fix ... keep the driving software isolated from the inputs that could be hacked.

I got my step siblings to get my their dad to quit driving when he ran over some tub in my drive, telling them "what if that is some kid in a parking lot". He never had other issues, but there could be safety/utility in driverless cars, IF they get it right.

I don't have to imagine what picking cotton is like. My mother grew up chopping and picking cotton, as you do when you live on a farm. She thinks it's important for everyone to know what that's like, so she also takes my kids out to the fields to see cotton growing and to handle cotton.
