Condoleeza Rice has gone on record to say that she doesn’t think American history should be “wiped out” or “sanitised.”
Among left-wing suggestions that national monuments should be removed or renamed because they depict historical slave owners, former secretary of state Rice has said that she doesn’t think this would be the right move.
“I don’t want to actually rename things that were named for slave owners,” she said to Fox & Friends on Monday morning. “I want us to have to look at those names and recognise what they did. Tell our kids what they did and for them to have a sense of their own history.”

She shared her own family history, describing how her ancestors started with little opportunity in the country.
“That Constitution originally counted my ancestors as 3/5 of a man. And then, in 1952, my father had trouble registering to vote in Birmingham, Alabama,” she explained. “And then, in 2005, I stood in the Ben Franklin Room…I took an oath of office to that same Constitution.”
“That’s the story of America,” she adds, “the long road to freedom.” Watch the video here:
