Clinton says Confederate flag has no place in US

( KTRS ) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton says last week’s slaughter of nine black church members in Charleston, South Carolina, was “an act of racist terrorism perpetrated in a house of God.”

In the wake of those shootings, she said the Confederate battle flag is a “symbol of our nation’s racist past” that “shouldn’t fly anywhere.”

Clinton met Tuesday with church members in the St. Louis suburbs, near the violent protests touched off last year in nearby Ferguson after the death of Michael Brown, a young black man who was shot by a white police officer.

She urged church members to find ways to turn their grief, anger and despair into purpose and action.
