Second Amendment Rally Renews Governor Northam's Blackface, KKK Scandal

One year ago, photos from Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's medical school year book surfaced. The photos showed Northam in either black face or full KKK garb. It was also revealed his nickname was "Coonman." A reminder

Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam confirmed Friday he was in a racist yearbook photo showing one person dressed in blackface and another in the KKK's signature white hood and robes, and apologized for "the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now."

The photograph, which was obtained by CNN, appears in the 1984 yearbook for Eastern Virginia Medical School. Northam did not say whether he was wearing the KKK outfit or blackface.

After the 1984 photo was released, a photo surfaced of Northam from his 1981 Virginia Military Institute college yearbook. Under the picture and his name, it listed two nicknames -- "Goose, Coonman" -- in quotes underneath.

"Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive," Northam said.

Because he's a Democrat, Northam stumbled through a press conference, declared he would not resign and the media dropped the issue. He then went on to campaign for fellow Democrats. 

But a pro-Second Amendment rally in Richmond today is bringing the scandal back into the spotlight. As Northam advocates to take away the rights and firearms of Virginians, those opposed to his power grab are reminding the public of who he really is. 

"The man behind the sheet wants to take your guns," one sign says. 

"Beware the Coonhound!" another one reads.

There are also signs for Northam to be recalled.
