My Shero has spoken

http://www.theroot.com/articles/news/2015/06/bree_newsome_opens_up_about_taking_down_confederate_flag_on_sc_state_capitol.html

“I removed the flag not only in defiance of those who enslaved my ancestors in the Southern United States, but also in defiance of the oppression that continues against black people globally in 2015, including the ongoing ethnic cleansing in the Dominican Republic. I did it in solidarity with the South African students who toppled a statue of the white supremacist, colonialist Cecil Rhodes,”-Brittney Newsome āœŠšŸ¾
