Horrifying blackface and lynching images from North Carolina Democrat Roy Cooper’s yearbook have emerged just days after he called on Virginia Governor Ralph Northam to resign over racist images in his yearbook.

Photos emerged Wednesday that show what's believed to be two members of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill's Chi Phi fraternity donning white robes, similar to those worn by the Ku Klux Klan, and depicting a lynching with a man donning blackface.
