7:04 am
he admits to us he struggled in his initial response to that photograph on his yearbook page. northam says this is a teaching moment for himself and the country. "the washington post" poll over the weekend shows virginians are split over whether he should stay in office but more than half of black virginians do not thing he needs to step down. here's part of our conversation with the governor. >> what have you learned that you didn't know before? >> well, several things. starting with i was born in white privilege. that has implications to it. the much different the way a white person such as myself is treated. >> did you not know you were born into white privilege? >> i knew i was, miss king but i didn't realize the powerful implications of that. and again talking to a lot of friends, that has come crystally clear to me this week. i've also learned why the use of blackface is so offensive and yes, i knew it in the past but
7:05 am
reality has really set in -- >> governor, it's hard for people listening to you, an educated man, at the age of 59. to say you're just learning about the history. you didn't know the history? know it was offensive before? >> i think we're all on a learning curve. certainly i am not the same person at age 59 that i was in my early 20s. >> your early 20s was 1984, not 1964. >> that's right, yes. >> you would think in 1984 that this was certainly a problem back then. >> i don't think there's any question there are today and there were then when i was in my early 20s racial incensensitiv y insensitivities. i think there's unconscious attitudes. we don't realize sometimes, especially as a white person, how impactful, how offensive they are. again, i've still got a lot to learn. but this has been a week that has been very eye opening for me. >> did you have black friends
7:06 am
growing up? >> i did. i grew up in the eastern shore, a very rural area. when i was in the fifth grade, schools were see segregated. so from the sixth grade through the 12th grade, i was in integrated schools. yes, i grew up in that environment. >> which makes it even harder for us to understand. you had black friends or grew up with black people. so it would seem that you would be more sensitive and more aware of that. >> i don't have any excuses for what i did in my early life but i can just tell you that i have learned, i have a lot more to learn. i'm a better person. and here as i sit as a 59-year-old man governing the commonwealth of virginia, this is really an opportunity i believe to make awareness of this issue,ke a dialo a discuss about race and equity in this country. >> let's go back to the picture. i know you've addressed it. it still raises so many
7:07 am
questions. >> absolutely. >> why do you think it came out now? >> i don't know, but this is really the first time i have seempb that picture. >> how could that be? it's on your yearbook page, governor. >> well, i was shocked to see it. i really believe if you look at the unpreparedness of me both to react to this on friday night and saturday, that really confirms, this is the first time -- >> let me ask you, are those your pants? those pants are very distinct. do you have a pair of pants that look like that? >> i have never had any pants like that. >> you first said -- first you said you wouldn't say which one was you. then you apologized for being in the picture. why would you apologize for something that more relationship fick you're not 100% sure it's you? >> i definitely overreacted. again -- >> but why did you do that? >> well, when you're in a
7:08 am
of shock, we don't think as clearly as we should. i will tell you later that night i had a chance to step back and take a deep breath, look at the picture and said this is not me in the picture. and i also had a number of friends and class mads from medical school that called and said, ralph that is not you. and that was comforting as well. >> an overreaction for something that is so sensitive and so offensive and so explosive to take responsibility without really knowing or 100% that that's me. >> when i stepped back and looked at it, i know it's not me in the planned outfit and i looked at the picture and said that's not me either. and that's why i got so strongly about going in front of the clarifying this. >> instead of clarifying at a
7:09 am
press conference nine days ago, he raised more questions. admitting to wearing shoe polish to darken face, impersonating michael jackson for a dance competition. >> are you still able to moon walk? >> inappropriate circumstances. >> my wife says inappropriate circumstances. >> for many of us watching, it looked like you were about to actually demonstrate the moon walk. were you thinking about showing off your moon walking skills? >> no. because i don't have those at age 59. i will say i regret that. this is a serious moment. whether it was a nervous laugh or whatever, it was inappropriate. >> you weren't thinking of doing it when you looked over at the floor? >> no. >> many people credit pam, your lovely wife, for stepping in with that. >> let me just say -- >> another reason to be nicer on valentine's day, sir. >> let me tell you, as we say, i married way up and i would not
7:10 am
be sitting here having this conversation if it wasn't for my wife of 33 years. >> what do you say to people that are looking at this story if you do stay in office, which you say you are, someone that commits a racist offense and says, well, the governor did it and he's okay. do you think it sends a message that this isn't being taken seriously if you stay in office when so many people at the highest levels want you to step down? >> you know, i'm not here to make any excuses but i will tell you the man that you're looking at right now at age 59 who has given over 35 years of service to the united states army, i have taken care of thousands of sick children and have had over 12 years of public service to the commonwealth of virginia, the man you're looking at right now is not who i was in my early 20s. i have learned. i admit to my mistakes.
7:11 am
i'm going to improve my life and do better and be in a position where i can help other people. every morning, i get up, if i feel like i'm helping people, that makes me content. >> it's an interesting time for the governor. what i walked away feeling is he so wants to make this rice and i talked to many black people and white neem virginia who say he has a lot of support, if you look at his history, look at what he's done, no one i've talked to believe he's racist, they think it's a stupid thing, but they do not believe he's racist. >> i think what you did is try to broaden the hellens, give us more context. his career includes wor as a pediatric neurologist, visiting the homes of many in crisis. his parents could have sent him to a private all white school. we have to view this in context.
7:12 am
>> one person, some misstep. an interesting article over the weekend where it said is there anybody out there that can't say they did something in their 20s or 30s -- >> the question is bring it to the present. when he talks about unconscious attitudes of today, what is he identifying and what light does she line on those? that's in the moment now. that's not about something that happened -- >> exactly. >> he was quite vague, but what he brings forward and what everybody sees about this about what goes on today is interesting reallying. >> saying multiple times no excuses. >> he has some explaining to do, when i asked him about the shoe polish comment. there's still more to come. >> we'll hear more of that. mean time, virginia democratic lieutenant governor is under more pressure to step down after a second woman
7:13 am
accused him of sexually assaulting her. fairfax not resigning. the governor saying he wants the truth to come out. >> these accusationings are serious. they need to be taken seriously. as you know, governor fairfax has called for an investigation. >> he too is calling for an investigation? >> he is and i support that. if these accusations are determined to be true, i don't think he'll have any other option but to resign. >> ed o'keefe with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. a member of fairfax's own party said over the weekend he would introduce articles of impeachment against the lieutenant governor if he didn't resign by today. he said he received additional football and more conversationings are needed before he files those articles of impeachment. his two accusers say they're

only on "cbs this morning," we have a firsthand look at the search for a u.s. aircraft carrier lost for almost 77 years. the research vessel petrol made history in 2017 when it discovered the wreck of the "uss indianapolis." it was sunk in the pacific by a japanese spleen in world war ii. now -- submarine in world war ii. it launched the famous dolittle
8:44 am
bombing raid on tokyo. the crew invited mark phillips along for the expedition in the south pacific east of the solomon islands. >> reporter: good morning, and welcome to somewhere in the south pacific and to the search for the "uss hornet," one of the most-fabled carriers of of the second world war. you might think looking for an aircraft carrier, something so big, would be a straightfr dfor thing. but it's a big ocean. around here it's about three-miles deep. and the first question is where tookthsearin in iron bottom sound, the infamous graveyard for ships and men around guadalcanal where some of the most intense and costly naval battles of the seconds world war were fought. and where the research vessel "petrol" and her crew begin the hunt for a wreck that's been lost for 77 years. >> carriers on both sides were under almost constant air attack -- >> reporter: the "hornet" was engaged in the 1942 battle for
8:45 am
the control of the skies over guadalcanal. >> u.s. forces caught off counterblows -- >> reporter: u.s. marines were holding a crucial airstrip that the japanese desperately wanted back. it was a new kind of sea war. >> with the planes the attack weapons -- >> i looked up, and there was a japanese dive bomber way down with his tracer bullets coming out of his wings right at me. >> reporter: we spoke to richard nowatzki on a video link. he was 18 that day on the "horn "hornet." he's 95 now. >> the two tornadorpeatedows the in took -- two orpeatedows that came in took it and shook it like a bone. no your, we stopped dead in the water. >> reporter: the "hornet" was finished. 140 of her crew were dead. the rest ordered to abandon ship. the japanese then sank her. >> the tactical victory for the enemy. >> reporter: the "hornet" became
8:46 am
another wartime tragedy, another lost grave. >> change complete -- >> reporter: the "petrol" has come to try to find it in the vast ocean. 140 square miles of ocean. >> indeed. >> reporter: this is needle in a haystack country. >> absolutely. >> reporter: rob kraft and his team have done their homework. >> that's when they changed course -- >> reporter: in a project funded by the late microsoft co-founder paul allen who had a passion for maritime history, they've outfitted a state-of-the-art deep-sea research vessel. >> here this is hour-by-hour information -- >> reporter: they've gone over records from other ships involved in the battle and plotted where the ships thought they were. but in battle, records are often unrepible. >> as -- unreliable. >> a ship log -- >> reporter: they looked at the japanese archives from the ships that sank the "hornet." the u.s. narrative and the japanese imperial navy, wartime
8:47 am
navy's logs, both point to the same rough place. >> yeah. in close proximity. you know, that's a good clue. >> take it away -- >> reporter: a good enough clue to have a look. the"petrol" drops a torpedo shape under the water, programmed to dive down in this case more than three miles, and to scan the bottom with sonar waves looking for something that shouldn't naturally be there. >> we've got an hour, hour of in that trip to the bottom. she'll start her first survey. >> reporter: it's a tense time. not while it's retrieved and data examined does the crew know if it's found anything. the data shows mile after mile of empty seabed until -- >> that looks like debris. >> that does look like debris, doesn't it? >> reporter: has it found something? >> we have something here.
8:48 am
you can see the difference here. >> reporter: the top left? what does that look like? >> i don't know. >> reporter: that looks suspiciously like a ship, but is it enough to warrant another dive? >> i'm thinking about it, yeah. >> reporter: he didn't think for long. >> get the guys spun up. >> reporter: only the camera-laden sub can find out if it's a ship or the ship. >> three, two, one, splash. >> reporter: she's on her way down. they don't just have dive machines aboard this vessel, they have time machines. things that go down through the water and back into the past. the search for the "hornet" three miles down and from 77 years ago continues tomorrow. >> and in mark's report tomorrow on "cbs this morning," we'll find out if the crew actually discovered the aircraft carrier or were met with just another
