Managing the Racial Breach: Clinton, Black-White Polarization, and the Race Initiative
Claire Jean Kim explores why President Clinton launched the Presidential Initiative on Race in 1997 despite the apparent political risks associated with confronting the black-white breach on racial issues. She argues that Clinton launched the race initiative precisely because he calculated that he could please blacks and whites alike, thus conquering the racial breach in public opinion and boosting his overall popularity. The race initiative was an extension of breach management strategies that Clinton had developed and pursued for years.
