It’s safe to say that race relations in the US are at an all-time low right now.
Eight years of disastrous Obama policies and his refusal to denounce the rising tide of liberal and black radicalism has made sure of it.
What was supposed to be our first “post-racial” president turned out to be the progenitor of extreme racial tension.
But it goes far beyond race. The Left in general has gone mad, seeing conservatives as Nazi boogeymen and trying to tear down everything associated with our nation’s past and what they deem as conservative.
The rise of Black Lives Matter and events like the 2015 massacre by the racist Dylan Roof have exacerbated tensions, as it’s given the Left the pretext they need to start revising history.
But the truth is, revising or erasing the past isn’t going to improve the present at all.
This is the sentiment held by Karen Cooper, a black woman who did an interview for a documentary called “Battle Flag” in 2016, which is about the history and meaning of the Confederate flag in modern America.
And liberals, you’re not going to like what she had to say.
As reported at the Conservative Tribune, with the Left’s nationwide assault on Confederate monuments, Karen’s interview is especially timely:
Here is a black woman who’s no longer a slave to the Left’s cancerous propaganda.
During the interview, Cooper was asked about her feelings of the Confederate flag, to which she simply replied, “I felt more welcomed in the South.”
Cooper, a former member of the Nation of Islam from New York state, told the interviewer that in the North:
“They claim they like black people,” but that everything is more segregated. When she moved to the South, Cooper said, she found everyone much friendlier.
“I came down here, and we were more together,” she stated. “People waved to me that I’d never known!”
Cooper was interviewed as a member of the Virginia Flaggers, which describes itself as “citizens of the Commonwealth who stand AGAINST those who would desecrate our Confederate Monuments and memorials, and FOR our Confederate Veterans.”
She became associated with the group through her activism on behalf of several Tea Party groups, according to the New York Daily News.

Cooper also explained that she supported flying the Confederate flag because to her it represented resistance to a bloated federal government, and a history that should not be forgotten.
If you talk to Confederate flag waving southerners, this is the response you’re most likely to hear. It’s not about racism or hating blacks; instead, they see it as a middle finger to the federal government.
“I feel I’m a slave now because the federal government does control me. I can’t smoke what I want to smoke. I can’t drink what I want to drink.
If I want to put something into my body, it’s my body, not theirs,” she explained. “That’s tyranny!”
“I know what people think about when they see the battle flag: the KKK, racism, bringing slavery back.
So I knew it would be something for people to see a black woman with the battle flag. How can it be racist if I’m out there with them?” Cooper stated.
Leftists despise people like Cooper. They even get away with calling people like her a “house negro” or a “Uncle Tom,” which is their way of invalidating their opinions.
They’d label her an outlier and just a token. Of course, the Left reveals its true, racist feelings about blacks whenever they see one thinking for themselves.
The fight over Confederate monuments is far more meaningful than it appears. Just think about what they’ll come for next if we don’t hold the line against their tyrannical actions…
Mount Rushmore, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, and so much more will be on the line, and don’t think for a second that their appetite will be satiated in the least.
