Clinton explains her plans on dealing with racism in America and excessive force by police officers:
“We’ve got to tackle systemic racism. This horrible shooting again? How many times do we have to see this in our country? In Tulsa? An unarmed man, with his hands in the air, this is unbearable and needs to be intolerable. And maybe I can by speaking directly to white people, look this is not who we are.

Clinton was recently endorsed by both President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle who are urging blacks to vote.
