    I love Black people. Our beautiful women especially. But come on lady. Sometimes I hate what we say or do like in this case. She is TOTALLY disrespectful. Why? She's basically saying her ancestors should have committed suicide. Guess what?
    Then she wouldn't be here. lol So her ancestors endured tremendous odds for her to spew this BS
    in 2015? S M H

    She says the confederate flag represents "freedom". There are a billion ways you can represent so called "freedom"

    Black woman defends Confederate flag, says ‘slavery was a choice’

    Karen Cooper, a black woman who lives in Virginia, said she supports the Confederate flag because it 'represents freedom.'

    A black woman who proudly waves the Confederate battle flag because it “represents freedom” also believes that “slavery was a choice” — because slaves had the choice to die.

    In a new interview, Virginia resident Karen Cooper explained why she joined the Virginia Flaggers, a group that defends the rebel flag against those who “worship ignorance, historical revisionism and political correctness.”

    Cooper, who found the flagging group through her activism in the Tea Party, explained the Confederate flag symbolizes a movement away from big government.

    “I actually think that it represents freedom,” she said in an interview for “Battle Flag,” a documentary project about the flag. “It represents a people who stood up to tyranny.”

    The interview comes amid a national discussion about the flag’s meaning — and vocal calls to remove it from government buildings after a rebel flag-supporter shot and killed nine people in a historical black church.

    Cooper, a New York native who later settled in Virginia, brushed off the flag’s history in slavery, explaining that oppression is not exclusive to the Confederate.

    “I’m not advocating slavery or think that it was right. It wasn’t and none of my friends think it was. It was just something that happened. It didn’t just happen in the South — it happened worldwide.”

    I finally realized that many of us suffer from this five years ago and feel that we need to impart the knowledge so we can finally make corrective measures to free ourselves from the insidiousness of white supremacy.
