Herman Cain joined Neil Cavuto on "Your World" to react to growing calls for Confederate monuments to be removed from public display.

The controversy has grown in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, where protests against the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee turned violent.

Cain said the Civil War is a part of our shared American history, and it's important that we remember it.

"When you start trying to eliminate signs of our history, where does it stop?" Cain said. "The answer is, it does not."

He pointed to a piece of conventional wisdom: "If you don't know your history, you are bound to relive it."

He said that's why he disagrees with people exerting so much energy in this Confederate monument debate, since that energy could used more productively.

"There's a big gap between black and white, relative to poverty, relative to class," Cain said. "Why don't we worry about those things and work on fixing those problems, rather than visual symbols that are part of our history?"
