New data from a poll surveying Americans’ attitudes about racism, racial justice and racial equality was released Thursday. The findings showed prominent differences in beliefs among the four main ethnic identities that were surveyed, which were white, Black, Asian and Hispanic.
The poll asked 16 questions that assessed respondents’ views on systemic racism, as well as perceived and experienced discrimination.
More than 1,180 adults from around the United States were surveyed. The poll was conducted for two days last week by Ipsos, a market research company, on behalf of NPR.
The survey found “there are significant gaps in perception between white and Black Americans when it comes to attitudes around racism and racial justice.”
