(NewsNation) — Names stricken from schools. Statues removed from public buildings and parks. Holidays replaced.

Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill says that for all their achievements, “they had fundamental flaws that shouldn’t be celebrated.” He joined “Dan Abrams Live” on Thursday to discuss the movements across the country.
