Several Black staff members and athletes have left Liberty University after the school’s president, Jerry Falwell Jr., tried to mock Virginia Governor Ralph Northam on Twitter with a mask that depicted the racist imagery from Northam’s medical school yearbook. Former Liberty University staffer Keyvon Scott says there was no room to grow for him there: “It felt like I was back in the 1950s or 1960s and that hurt. And it’s kinda like how do you maneuver being in a Christian atmosphere but being looked at like you’re nothing.”
