Meet North Carolina native HK Edgerton. Over the years, Edgerton has made a name for himself by dressing as a Confederate soldier and parading the Confederate flag around the South. Edgerton describes himself as an activist for Southern heritage and has appeared at dozens of rallies in support of the flag and its history.

Earlier this week, just hours after “Black Lives Matter” was spray-painted on a Confederate monument in Asheville, Edgerton appeared on site to lash out at the vandals. “I’m not going to blame it on a Yankee, because I’ve seen some southern folk around here that are real questionable too, that don’t know anything about who they are and their families and the honorable people in the southland of America… red, yellow, black, white and brown!” Edgerton said in an interview with the local NBC affiliate.

Edgerton, a former president of the North Carolina NAACP, is a real life Clayton Bigsby. As for people who have an issue with his outlook, he remarked in a separate interview, “I don’t know why anyone would complain about an old handsome Black man standing here, embracing the flag of his ancestors and his homeland.”

The Confederate flag has become a hot topic after Dylann Roof, a White man photographed wearing the symbol, entered a Black church last week and opened fire on nine Black people, killing them. Wal-Mart, Amazon and eBay have all announced that they will no longer sell merchandise with the flag on it, and politicians in several Southern states are working to have the flag removed from state flags and license plates.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
