No, ‘Je Suis Charleston’?: The De-Politicization Of Black Oppression

But for Karen Cooper, a Black woman who was born in New York but later settled in Virginia, the flag embodies something else entirely. “I actually think that it represents freedom,” the ardent tea party supporter says in a video interview that’s been making the rounds online. “It represents a people who stood up to tyranny.”
