He denies having been in a racist photograph on his page in his 1984 medical school yearbook.

Ralph Northam says he has learned why blackface is offensive, after he admitted to darkening his face decades ago as part of a Michael Jackson costume.

Attorney General Mark Herring said he, too, had donned blackface.

Another possibility: Fairfax simply hangs on as he disputes the allegations.

But King pressed, "At this time, do you think he should resign?"

Asked Sunday for his opinion on his subordinates, Northam told CBS that it's up to them to decide whether they want to stay in office. "I promise that my work on this issue will be tireless until we have a process and outcome that treats these women with the respect they deserve going forward".

"Well, several things, starting with I was born in white privilege and that has implications to it and it is much different the way a white person such as myself is treated in this country." he said in the interview. Tim Kaine and almost the state's entire Democratic congressional delegation, among others.

As the crisis widened by midweek, Democratic leaders, and black members of the Virginia legislature appeared willing to give both Fairfax and Herring the benefit of the doubt for the time being-in Herring's case, because he apologized personally for wearing blackface. Here he is gavelling a session to order Friday in Richmond.

While Northam pushes back, Fairfax is under increasing pressure to resign over two allegations of sexual assault.

Calls for Fairfax to step aside have come from state House and Senate Democrats, the Legislative Black Caucus, former Democratic governor Terry McAuliffe, Virginia's two US senators - Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, also both Democrats - and several potential Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Fairfax, who is black, has denied both claims and called them a "co-ordinated smear campaign".

Watson's legal team released an email exchange between her and a former Duke classmate from October 2016, in which Watson responds to an invitation to a fundraiser for Fairfax by saying, "Justin raped me in college and I don't want to hear anything about him".

Ibraheem Samirah, who was born in the US but calls himself a "second-generation Palestinian refugee", said the offensive comments he wrote on Facebook were musings of his college mind.

Asked later what Northam meant by saying "medical school and San Antonio", spokeswoman Ofirah Yheskel said he misspoke - that he meant in medical school in San Antonio, where he did his residency.

"Every now and again, we slip up, we fall, and we have a responsibility to dust ourselves off and seek for full healing and reconciliation - but reconciliation that is based upon the one who has been offended, not the offender", Howard explains.

But according to the new poll, 47 percent of Virginians believe the governor should remain in office while and equal percentage believe he should step down. And majority did not know enough about Fairfax's response to the allegations to feel strongly about it. "This is a matter of humanity and morality".

To Howard and many of his students, though, the answer is clear. "This is not a political issue", he says.
