The former secretary of state arrived by private jet and spoke at the Christ the King United Church of Christ in neighboring Florissant, Mo.
“I know it’s tempting to dismiss a tragedy like this as an isolated incident, to believe that in today’s America, bigotry is largely behind us, that institutionalized racism no longer exists” Clinton told the crowd in the wake of fatal shootings at a black Charleston, SC, church last week, according the Daily Mail reported.
“But despite our best efforts and our highest hopes, America’s long struggle with race is far from finished. We can’t hide from hard truths about race and justice. We have to name them, own them and change them.”
Brown was shot by a cop last August, one of a wave of slayings, protests and riots in several locations around the nation, including the police-chokehold death Eric Garner on Staten Island last July.
