Rev. Al Sharpton on Thursday called for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring to resign after they both admitted to wearing blackface in the 1980s.

“If you sin, you must pay for the sin,” Sharpton said at the Virginia Union University’s weekly chapel service. “Blackface represents a deeper problem where people felt they could dehumanize and humiliate people based on their inferiority.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“When we’re reacting to blackface, we’re not reacting to the act. We’re reacting to what the act represents,” he added, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Northam, a Democrat, so far has refused to bow to increasing pressure to resign over the controversy stemming from a photo showing one man dressed up in blackface and another in Ku Klux Klan garb. Northam denies he was in the photo, but did admit he wore blackface for a Michael Jackson costume in the 1980s.

    How come no one complained when they made that movie White Chicks where black men wore “white face” to look like white girls? White people dont get butt hurt over every little thing.

    Wow! Maybe you should be concerned about your own digressions and not be so worried about others. Judge not lest you be judged. Or have you forgotten what the Bible says. I just love watching the crumble of the Democrats

    The only one who “needs to pay for their sins is all the racist black people who think skin color should define peoples characters” which is the dumbest argument the Democrats have ever come up with. History proves that it was the Democrats who started the racist movement. Both white and light-skinned people, as well as black skinned people, were used as slaves so get over yourselves. Martin L King would never agree with you Sharpton, and your sick sheeple, never, as hatred and fraud wasn’t in his vocabulary
