Is Reality Optional?

I have an admission to make. I am thoroughly enjoying watching the gotcha tactics of race politics the American left, Democrat Party, and the liberal media frequently use against adversaries backfire and strike one of their own: Virginia Governor Ralph Northam.

Typically, the stories we hear about white people appearing in blackface are when a conservative or Republican politician is discovered to have done so many years ago at a frat party or Halloween Party in a sophomoric attempt to be funny.
