CNN’s Angela Rye Calls for Washington, Jefferson Monuments to Come Down

Political commentator and former Congressional Black Caucus director Angela Rye demanded that all memorials and likenesses of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Robert E. Lee be taken down.

Rye said on CNN that there is a “problem” in how many people are taught American history in school.

“George Washington was a slaveowner. Whether we think they were protecting American freedom or not, he wasn’t protecting my freedom,” Rye said.
