On Friday, political commentator Bakari Sellers said that he was exhausted at the amounted of racism in America, after governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) was discovered posing in a racist photo.

A photo from Northam’s medical school yearbook surfaced and shows a man in blackface standing next to a man in a Ku Klux Klan hood. Northam admitted that it was him in the photo, but failed to clarify which man he was.

“Do you think the governor should resign? CNN host Anderson Cooper asked Sellers.

“It’s exhausting. It’s exasperating. Can people just not be racist?” Sellers said.

“I think Democrats have to stand up and call for his resignation,” he said. “He was a 25-year-old man in blackface or in a KKK outfit. Neither one of those is acceptable. The KKK, all they did was terrorize, lynch, brutalize African-Americans throughout the South. You don’t get a pass for that.”

He added, “You cannot be the leader of a state like Virginia with those issues in your past.”

Sellers then explained that we are not too far removed from our countries racist past.

“People talk about systemic racism, and a medical school allowed a picture like this to be published in their yearbook. And no one saw anything wrong with that in the 80s? When I say we’re not that far removed from our past which is strangling us — you cannot disagree with that point,” he said.

2020 Election

The View hosts mock Republicans for ‘shooting themselves in the foot’ on election conspiracies

Published

The hosts of "The View" couldn't help but notice that the Republicans are making it more difficult to get their own voters out to support Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) for the special election in January.

The problem the GOP has to overcome is that the overwhelming majority of Republican voters believe that the 2020 election was "rigged" by Democrats. It puts Republicans in a difficult place because now they have to combat that message with assurances that the Georgia special election isn't already rigged for the Democrats.

"I'm really sick of all of this," Whoopi Goldberg bemoaned. "I'm sick of people blaming American citizens for cheating in their own elections. I'm sick of this. You're blaming Republican governors. You're blaming people who are saying, 'Actually, no.' Why would they fight against their own interests, and, again, I will say if the Democrats had done this, why has everybody still got a job? None of this makes any sense to me."

Georgia Republicans turn on Gov. Brian Kemp: He ‘will be primaried’

Published

on

Georgia Republicans were already unhappy with Gov. Brian Kemp, and his refusal to interfere in President Donald Trump's election loss may have been the last straw.

Trump claims credit for Kemp's election win two years ago, but he and other Republicans have withdrawn their support after the governor has declined to get involved in the president's efforts to overturn his loss to Joe Biden in Georgia and other states, reported The Daily Beast.

“[Kemp] will be primaried," said Kay Godwin, the chair of the Pierce County GOP. "Just hoping and praying we get the right one this time.”

Georgia secretary of state: ‘There are those that are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters’

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger warned on Monday that outside groups are trying to take advantage of the "emotions" of President Donald Trump's supporters with false information about the recent and upcoming elections.

"There are those that are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters with fantastic claims, half-truths, misinformation and, frankly, they are misleading the president as well," Raffensperger explained at a Monday press conference.

The Georgia official went on to announce investigations into over 250 claims of election irregularities.

"Upholding the law matters, truth matters, and your vote matters," he insisted. "Anyone telling you to boycott an election is not on your side. You're right to vote is sacred. Don't let someone con you out of it."
