US election: Clinton vs Trump on race relations

How do Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump plan to deal with America's increasingly strained race relations?

    In the run-up to the US presidential election, Hillary Clinton capitalised upon her Democrat rival's - Bernie Sanders - support among black voters, and is now widely considered to have the African-American vote in the bag.
