VMI Cadet started this petition to VMI Faculty and Staff

Governor Northam's character is such that we, the student body of VMI, find that allowing him to speak at our graduation would be in violation of our many traditions of honor and integrity with which we have been imbued. We find that associating oneself with cowardly and un-American groups and symbols such as "black face" and the Klu Klux Klan are in violation of the 2nd, 4th, 7th, and 8th tenants of the Code of a Cadet, as well as General Committee Charter clause 8-2c. As a Corps, we choose to stand with our Brother Rats of every race, gender, and religious denomination against bigotry and racism just as Jonathan Myrick Daniels stood against these evils years ago. On these grounds, we demand his invitation to act as the key note graduation speaker be rescinded.
