Governor of Virginia

I just became a proud American in October 2018 and am Canadian born. Not too stupid with 3 Universities and a full career behind me, I retired to sunny and warm Arizona in 2003. I am moved by the Governor’s(of Virginia) photo and also by the issue itself. Which person in the photo is racist? The white has always frightened me and I am white! The black looks like my best friend from college whom I admire and love. If this is a PC issue then I am stupid I offer my hand and my heart to Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam. My question is: May I dress up for Halloween as one of these characters or is it a crime or a sin or both?
