LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) -- Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. apologized Monday (June 8) for a tweet that included a racist photo that appeared on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's medical school yearbook page decades ago. "After listening to African American LU leaders and alumni over the past week and hearing their concerns, I understand that by tweeting an image to remind all of the governor's racist past I actually refreshed the trauma that image had caused and offended some by using the image to make a political point," he tweeted Monday.
