In South Carolina, Clinton hails Confederate flag's removal
WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. - Hillary Rodham Clinton has praised South Carolina leaders for removing the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds.
But the Democratic presidential candidate says that action was only symbolic, and that all people in the country should unite behind the rallying cry - "black lives matter."
During a stop Thursday in West Columbia, South Carolina, Clinton talked about what she said was a lack of educational and economic opportunities, and a criminal justice system that treats blacks more harshly than whites.
