Hillary Clinton is addressing race in increasingly blunt terms as the presidential race turns to Southern states, where black voters make up a significant portion of the Democratic electorate.Clinton's language underscores how the conversation around race has shifted after seven years of America's first black president, a period some critics say marked little progress on criminal justice abuses and black poverty. But it also captures the relative freedom Clinton, a wealthy white woman, has to discuss race.A study by University of Pennsylvania researcher Daniel Q. Gillion found that Obama talked about race less in his first two years of office than any Democratic president at least since John F. Kennedy in the early 1960s.Clinton rival Bernie Sanders, too, has spoken about race in raw terms.Clinton's aides believe that Obama's re-election victory, where he won just 39 percent of the white vote, proves that Democrats no longer win by wooing white independents but by galvanizing turnout among communities of color.
