Perceptions about the state of black-white relations in America have fallen dramatically since the summer of 2009. But voters are still more
optimistic about that relationship than they are about relations between whites and Hispanics and between blacks and Hispanics.
They say the survey had a 95% accuracy with a -3/+3 margin of error on the sample.
I dont know if I have noticed a change... but I live in a predominatly white area. Has anyone seen a change?
I have never posted a topic like this. So I do not know if I am posting this in the right area.
Thank you ahead of time, if you have to move it.
Apparently the study shows that African-Americans confidence in the nation’s direction, soared after Barack Obama’s Election. Only 20% of all
voters think that race relations between whites and Hispanics are improving. A whooping 50% say they think race relations between the races are
getting worse. And 24% say they are getting worse.
Here is the big difference in opinion - 59% of African-Americans feel that the country is heading in the right direction, with 27% of whites
thinking they are on course.

I decided to search google to see what was being said anound the net.
Again, I say I haven't noticed a change. I was shocked. I thought this study must have it wrong. Wow .... The headlines are not bad, but I am sure
that is encouraged to keep everyone calm and happy. When you get into the forums on the subject.... It gets very one sided.
Nearly everyone in the threads agree, racism has grown since Obama's election.
