With the political world gripped by scandal, the now infamous blackface photos posted by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey once again find themselves relevant as two Virginia officials, Democrat Governor Ralph Northam and Democrat Attorney General Mark Herring, find themselves embroiled in their own blackface controversies.
Dorsey tweeted “Adam bought a durag and $40 worth of makeup: costume complete” on October 31 of 2006, and late last year Twitter users found the photo Dorsey seemingly referred to and juxtaposed the image next to the tweet, revealing an overtly racist sentiment.

Many have criticized media coverage of Northam and Herring because the blackface photos were taken in separate college parties in the early 1980s, 30 years ago. Dorsey’s photo is only 13 years old, when wearing blackface was already well accepted to be a racist mockery of African Americans.
Another Dorsey tweet that began to circulate Sunday morning appears to match up to an old picture of him with a white man who is wearing a durag and makeup that some are calling blackface.
The tweet suggests that Dorsey himself was involved in the creation of this “costume.”
“Adam bought a durag and $40 worth of makeup: costume complete,” Dorsey wrote.
Dorsey also came under fire for a previous tweet, in which he disparagingly referred to a trans woman as a “transvestite” and remarked about the experience of sitting next to her for five hours.
Sat next to a transvestite who immediately ordered a vodka lemonade. Interesting 5 hours.

While the Attorney General of Virginia resigned from his position as co-chair of the Democratic Attorneys General of America (DAGA), and Northam receives escalating calls for his immediate resignation, Dorsey has seemingly escaped all controversy regarding his tweet and the resurfaced image.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
