CNN host Van Jones has a show where several different people ride around town in a van, all from different backgrounds and different political beliefs. In a recent episode, a Republican woman cried on camera after a Democrat in the car reminded her that her favorite statue of Robert E. Lee is a “monument to domestic terrorism.”
The episode featured two white Trump supporters and one black Democrat as the van drove around Atlanta. When passing by Stone Mountain, the democrat remarked that “The etching, in stone, is a monument to domestic terrorism.”
The woman, starting to cry, start spewing out:
‘That makes me so sad because I don’t identify with it that way. Coming here, I think of all the times with my father, my family—so this seems like a happy place. To hear that it’s hurtful to you—it makes me sad that that’s the impact it has on you, but this is a place where I have really happy memories.’
