16. Obama's percentage of the black vote was not very different than previous Democrats (who are white)
so the question you are asking is the difference between say, Kerry's percentage of the black vote, perhaps ~90%, versus Obama's ~95%.

meanwhile, Kerry did horribly among Southerners in general, except marginally better than Obama --which says a lot more about white voters in the South than it does about black ones.
