How delegates are chosen

I've been trying to get my head around how delegates are awarded in the primaries. I seem to find conflicting counts for the various contenders from different news organizations. I came across this from the SC Democratic Party. [Hat tip: Mary Katherine Ham]

After reading it I think I now know even less. And I feel dirty after reading this:

Our goal is to elect a delegation that is at least 50% African American, as well as at least 3 GLBT delegates and 5 who are under 30. The election of At-Large delegates may be used to reach this goal.
