Statement from Hillary Clinton on the Vote to Remove the Confederate Flag

Hillary Clinton released the following statement after the South Carolina Legislature voted to remove the Confederate Flag from the State House grounds:

“Removing this symbol of our nation’s racist past is an important step towards equality and civil rights in America. The flag may soon no longer fly at the State Capitol, but there is still unfinished business in confronting and acting on the inequalities that still exist in our country. We can’t hide from the hard truths about race and justice. We must do everything in our power to have the courage to name them and change them.”
