College That Published Gov. Northam’s Blackface Photo Being Awarded Diversity Honor

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

You can’t make this stuff up.

The medical school that was attended by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) is the same temple of higher learning that published the infamous 1984 blackface photo featuring a young Northam.

To be fair, it may not be him posing in blackface within the photo. He could be the one in the KKK robes.

According to The Hill, however, this same school is now being awarded a national diversity honor:

Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk was awarded the Institutional Excellence Award last month by the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (NADOHE), The Virginian-Pilot reportedThursday.

The award goes to one school annually for “measurable progress in promoting and sustaining innovative diversity efforts” on its campus.

The hilarity of this was not lost on president and provost of the school Dr. Richard V. Homan.

“I told my wife, ‘God has a wry sense of humor,’” said Homan.

According to The Hill, administrators were told weeks ago that the medical school was going to receive the award, but had to keep it under wraps due to the controversy surrounding the blackface photo. A nomination was submitted by Dr. Marcus Martin, a black board member for the school, in early January.

“The nomination was submitted before we had the information about what happened at the state level,” Dr. Marcus Martin said. “So again, I think we can praise God for knowing that this institution is doing a lot of the right things.”
