Gov. Northam's 'pay to stay' deal with black leaders

That blackface/KKK photo on Governor Northam's yearbook page won't be a problem for Virginia's black leaders as long as he meets their demands.  The audacious "I am not going anywhere" Northam is wheeling and dealing with the race-baiters here in Virginia to save the Democratic Party and his own "white privileged" skin.  Forget post-birth abortions.  The only way the little ones will have a chance in Virginia with the Democrats in charge is if they are allowed to vote.

With alleged rapist Lt..Gov Fairfax out of the running, the NAACP, black clergy, and various black legislators in Virginia are stuck with Northam, and they are calling the shots.

After demanding Northam's resignation a few short days ago, the chairman of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus changed his mind and now says he's willing to sit down with the governor and discuss "issues important to black lawmakers."

On Monday, black community leaders and clergy met on the Capitol steps in Richmond to "forgive" Northam.  A former city council member read a prepared statement promising to take full advantage of the situation for his fellow blacks:

We are drawn here under the Christian doctrine that it is human to err but divine to forgive. We have evaluated the governor's past performance as we have known him and choose to forgive,

Rather than pursue measures that accomplish nothing, we choose to use this opportunity to advance the cause of African-Americans rather than wallow in the punitive measures of revenge.

In a letter from another group of black leaders, Gov. Northam and A.G. Mark Herring were called upon to raise $5 million for each of the five historically black colleges and to remove confederate statues on historic Monument Avenue in Richmond and elsewhere in Virginia.

With the Democratic Party in a vise grip over rape allegations involving Lt. Governor Fairfax and A.G. Herring's 1980 blackface antics, the strategists, desperate to keep the fourth-in-line Republican out of the governor's mansion, defaulted to their tried and true method of securing black loyalty to Northam — through appeasement and financial incentives.

The media also jumped in to keep Northam in place with a Washington Post-Schar School poll showing that 58% of blacks in Virginia think Northam should stay put.  This is less than a week after many were calling for his resignation.

A day after the poll was released, the governor appeared on CBS's morning show with Oprah's gal pal, Gayle King.  During his interview with King, Northam lamented his "white privilege" and made it clear he is committed to focusing on "race and equity" in Virginia for the next three years.  King gave good cover for the Democratic Party in ignoring this overt racist bribery of "equity" for blacks in exchange for their loyalty.

From infanticide to blackface to sex crimes and now to shakedowns by black leaders, and with all 140 seats in Virginia's General Assembly up for grabs in 2019, will Virginians finally throw the Democrats out?
