Rachel Campos-Duffy on Confederate Statues: Art Can Help Us Grapple
Rachel Campos-Duffy talked about how she is addressing the subject of race and the Charlottesville violence with her eight children.
Violent white supremacist riots in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend rocked the nation and led many opposing protesters to tear down Confederate statues, saying they represent racism.
"I believe that art isn't just meant to soothe us or make us sore," the commentator told "Fox & Friends" on Saturday. "Sometimes art is meant to be there to help us grapple with difficult things, painful things in this case about our own American history."
"Communities have to decide, not mobs," Campos-Duffy said she tells her kids. "If these statues cause pain to people in the community, that community needs to decide whether that statue is worth it or not."
"We need to back up for our kids at least," she said. "So much identity politics at the adult level has been injected into our children's lives."
