Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam is the subject of nationwide condemnation today for refusing to shake hands with his pro-life black conservative Republican opponent, E.W. Jackson. Northam was caught on camera refusing to shake Jackson’s hand after supporting Obamacare and attacking conservative Christian voters.

As a pro-life, conservative African-American, Jackson has been pegged with the typical “Uncle Tom” attacks throughout the campaign from liberals who claim he is selling out his ethnicity by taking principled conservative stances and opposing abortion.

The incident comes after Jackson found that one of his campaign signs in Virginia’s Loudoun County had vandals smearing the sign with white paint.

Brietbart News has more and a video (below at the 6:30 mark) of what happened.

Virginia’s top Democratic candidates Terry McAuliffe (running for governor) and Northam have portrayed themselves as pragmatic centrists who are happy to reach across the aisle. But this video shows Northam won’t even reach across his chair.

After a lively debate, at 6:30 in the video, Jackson—the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor—attempts to shake hands with Northam, who will not shake it and doesn’t even look Jackson in the eye.

At first, a viewer might give Northam the benefit of the doubt that somehow he doesn’t see the extended hand. But Jackson dispels that doubt by taking his outstretched hand to tap Northam on the arm and then re-extends his hand almost into Northam’s lap. Northam still refuses to take it.

Poor Paco...Has to see racism in every simple interaction between people of differing races.

All I saw was a public snub of a political opponent a couple of days before an election.

Mr Jackson will not be defended by the "professional blacks".

He's a conservative who preaches responsibility, anathema to the socialist black establishment.

Chris Matthews is that you???

George once again has demonstrated the left's double standards.

When exactly have you condemned the AWR from the left that I've posted time after time on here?

Were the political parties reversed, would you say the same? We know the answer to that question, Douchie. You're old and worn out. That post confirms it.

I see a Reader-esque departure in your future. That much denial usually results in some sort of mental break.

There's nothing inaccurate about the title, lefty. Were the political parties reversed, you'd be screaming, "Racism!"

How about Pro-choice pediatric neurologist with strong support from women voters refuses to shake hand of ultra conservative abortion opponent after televised debate appearance."?

That would work too.

Dr. Alveda King—the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. and one of America’s most prominent and respected civil rights leaders—said in a statement to Breitbart News:
I was saddened to learn today that Lt. Gov. candidate Ralph Northam refused to shake the hands of his opponent E.W. Jackson at the end of a television debate. I am deeply burdened by the loss of civility in politics today.
As one who has been elected to office as a Democratic Georgia State Representative, served as a Republican presidential appointee and who has often voted as an Independent, I have often said that we would all be better off without the political squabbles that tend to divide us. Refusing to shake hands with your opponent in front of a television audience takes the loss of civility to a new low. I would hope that his refusal to shake hands had nothing to do with the color of his opponent’s skin.
In a troubled economy, people are looking for leaders who can bring everyone together to solve the problems that confront us all. It is my hope that in these last hours of the race, Ralph Northam will recognize his inappropriate behavior and offer an apology to E.W. Jackson and to all those he hopes to represent.
