Historically Black College Rejects Racist Ralph Northam’s ‘Listening Tour’

The soul train derailed before its first stop.

Just weeks after Big League Politics exposed Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam as a racist, the embattled public servant was rejected from Virginia Union University, where he was scheduled to appear for the first stop on his “listening tour” to atone for his racist past.

“Student Government Association President Jamon Phenix penned a letter addressed to Gov. Northam demanding he back out of the event, explaining that the students ‘feel as though your presence takes away from the historical significance of our commemoration,'” said a VICE report.

VUU is a historically black university. Northam heeded the demands of the VUU student body.

According to the report, the Governor was invited to the school later this year for a “roundtable discussion.”

“There was no real reconciliation. If he was to attend, he would not be on the platform and he would not have said anything. Where’s the reconciliation inside of just a presence?” Phenix reportedly told VICE.

Northam has refused to resign, despite calls from multiple high-level Democratic lawmakers and groups. Over the weekend, the Democratic Governor’s Association and the NAACP both re-upped their calls for Northam’s resignation.

Still, the Governor hangs on by a thread.

His lieutenant, Justin Fairfax, stands accused of rape by two women, charges which he vehemently denies. Fairfax has also refused to resign, and the #BelieveAllWomen crowd has been noticeably less supportive of his accusers than they were of the accusers of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Attorney General Mark Herring, who called for Northam to resign when the original blackface/KKK robe photos were published, later admitted to wearing blackface himself. He has ceased his calls for Northam’s resignation, and has not resigned either.

For Northam, the soul train derailed before its first stop. Despite that, it rolls onward.

Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?

A shock entry to the Presidential race.

Published

Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.

West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.

Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.

However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.

West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.

Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
