CNN host Anderson Cooper has refused to disavow family members who owned slaves directly related to Michelle Obama.
As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest families in American history, Cooper is related to some of the biggest slave owners of all time. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned a South Carolina plantation where Michelle Obama’s ancestor, Jim Robinson, was born.
DC Whispers reports:
As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies.
This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc.
All of which means Anderson Cooper has benefited financially with greatly improved socio-economic standing via an empire literally built upon the backs of American slaves.
Will Mr. Cooper disavow his own family? (Remember, that is the very type of thing he demands of others based on nothing more than distant secondary affiliation. It’s crazy, biased, and detracts from far more important issues facing the country but that is what the Establishment media continues to do over and over again so why not apply those same insane rules to Mr. Cooper?)
And what of CNN? Will it disavow Anderson Cooper – a direct beneficiary of slave labor?
Or does exaggerated false moral “responsibility” only pertain to others and not themselves?
