Is the U.S Still Racially Unequal?
Most Black believe this is true.
Well, according to a recent poll, nearly 8 in 10 African-Americans believe we’re a long way from racial equality. Although the inauguration of the first Black president in 2008 led people to believe we had reached a color blind society, the sentiment quickly dissolved as the years passed.
Blacks continue to be disproportionately discriminated when it comes to housing, jobs and income. In the past year, 35 percent of African-Americans said they were treated less fairly than other races in terms of police, the judicial system, work and schools.
Nearly half of Americans report that there’s “a lot more” to be done in order to achieve racial equality. This number climbs to 79 percent among blacks compared to 44 percent for whites and 48 percent for Latinos.
What do you think? Are we closer to a color blind society?
