North Carolina Governor, Roy Cooper is taking heat from many who want him out of office come this November

The Democratic Governor comes from a family that owned slaves in Nash County, according to 1850 U.S. Federal Census.

Jimmy Howington, of Garner, North Carolina took to Facebook Saturday to put Cooper on blast after 3 confederate monuments were ordered to be removed Saturday by Cooper to ‘protect public safety.’

Howington said that Cooper’s great grandfather William (Willie) H Cooper owned slaves in Nash County. 

He had a total of 21 slaves according to the 1850 census. By 1860 he along with his siblings had a total of 47 slaves, Howington said. 

This information came from, according to Howington.
