Because every race has its fair share of idiots. In a webisode documentary, Karen Cooper, proudly displays and waves the confederate flag.
“I actually think that it represents freedom,” Cooper said. “It represents a people who stood up to tyranny.”
Yes, Cooper is a Black woman. Who obviously doesn’t really know what the flag represents, but decided to give it a different meaning to suit her purposes.
Cooper is also a member of a confederate flag advocacy group based out of Virginia called the Virginia Flaggers. According to the Washington Post, members of the organization doesn’t think it represents racism.
“I’m not advocating slavery or think that, you know, it was right,” she says. “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.”
Besides, she adds, slavery is “a choice.”
“I say that because of what Patrick Henry said: ‘Give me liberty or give me death.’ To me, if we had went back to that kind of slavery, no I couldn’t do it. Give me death.”
Slavery. Was. A. Choice.
In today’s racial draft, I’m offering up Cooper for any white person with common sense.
