Protesters waving Confederate flags greeted President Barack Obama at his hotel in Oklahoma City on Wednesday night, days after he heralded the South Carolina government's decision to remove the flag from state capitol grounds after nine African Americans were shot dead in a Charleston church.
It wasn't the first time Obama has been met with the Confederate flag recently. A similar display was seen when he visited the Nashville area earlier this month.
Obama spoke in Durant, Oklahoma, on Wednesday about expanding Internet access in the U.S. in order to increase economic opportunities for Americans and better compete globally. He is set to visit a federal prison near Oklahoma City on Thursday, the first sitting president to do so.
