Fox News Host Calls Slavery ‘Good History’ In America

By Brian Skellenger

As the fallout from the deadly Charlottesville protest continues, another conservative voice has joined the fray. During a segment on Fox & Friends, Katrina Pierson extolled the virtues of Confederate statues and the "good history" they represent, shocking John Hopkins University Professor Wendy Osefo. 

Prior to Pierson's comments, Osefo had remarked that Confederate statues (which sprung up after the South lost the Civil War) are "not a symbol of patriotism. This is a symbol of hatred and division," and argued that while they are a piece of history, they are "not necessarily the good part of American history."

Osefo called that part of history "nefarious," and said that the statues belong in museums.
