 In the aftermath of the South Carolina shooting at a black church, President Barack Obama told US mayors on Friday that racism remains a "blight" that the United States has to "combat together."

Obama also reiterated his support for gun control legislation, saying tragedies like the one in South Carolina call for a response beyond grief.
