Al Gore to VA Gov. Ralph Northam: oppose the Atlantic Coast pipeline and it will erase your blackface mishap

Former Vice President Al Gore has an idea how Virginia Governor Ralph Northam can atone for his blackface mishap: just oppose the Atlantic Coast pipeline and all will be forgiven!

Gore made the remarks during an appearance before a crowd of African Americans with his daughter and social justice advocate Rev. William Barber II.

From Daily Progress:

Gore told residents that the proposal to build the compressor station in the African-American community is a “vivid example of environmental racism.”

“This proposed pipeline is a reckless, racist rip-off,” Gore said.

He said Northam should fulfill his promise for racial reconciliation by opposing the pipeline project.

“This is an ideal opportunity for him to say, ‘I’ve seen the light,’” Gore said.
