Opposing protests recently clashed in the city of Charlottesville, VA over the  controversy of Confederate monuments. Those in favor of keeping the statues say they reflect history while those who advocate for the monuments’ removal, call them an offensive reminder of racial oppression and white supremacy. Democratic mayor Michael Signer, who strongly denounced the KKK rally in Charlottesville, says he supports the monuments remaining where they are with some stipulations. He joins Soledad O’Brien to discuss how his city is tackling the difficult conversation around race and statues to the confederacy.
