We talked about the history of the U.S. 'I told her I understood the history of slavery and oppression, but my future isn't in that. I can't look backward. I have to look forward. I understand the history of America, but can't dwell in that otherwise we can't move forward,' said Donalds. ''There's a core set of values all Americans can agree on. In my view,
