US Race Relations Better Than Ever (Pre-Verdict)

From Gallup:

Americans Rate Racial and Ethnic Relations in U.S. Positively

View black-Hispanic relations least positively

By Jeffrey M. Jones | July 17, 2013

PRINCETON, NJ — Americans view relations between various racial and ethnic groups positively, ranging from 87% who describe white-Asian relations as good to 60% describing black-Hispanic relations as good.

The results are from Gallup’s Minority Rights and Relations poll, conducted June 13-July 5, and completed before last week’s verdict in the George Zimmerman trial that brought race relations back into the spotlight…

Talk about bad timing.

Americans’ views of various intergroup relations had generally improved since 2008, the last year the poll was conducted. Now, Americans’ assessment of white-Asian relations is the most positive it has been in Gallup’s trend, originating in 2001. Their views of white-black, white-Hispanic, and black-Hispanic relations are the most positive since 2004…

Clearly we have Mr. Obama to thank for this new golden age of racial harmony, which we see everywhere around us.

A separate question in the poll that assesses black-white relations only, and dates back to 1963, also shows a more positive current view of race relations. Forty percent of Americans say black-white relations will always be a problem for the United States. That is two percentage points above the low of 38% from June 2008. Meanwhile, 58% currently believe a solution to black-white relations will eventually be worked out, tied for the high from June 2008…

Of course, "eventually" we will all be dead.

The high of 68% of Americans saying black-white relations would always be a problem came in 1995, shortly after a California jury found O.J. Simpson not guilty of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman…

By the way, do you remember how white people rioted and looted after that verdict? We don’t, either.

Racial and Ethnic Groups Differ Most in Ratings of Black-Hispanic Relations

For the most part, whites, blacks, and Hispanics do not vary much in how they perceive relations between racial and ethnic groups. At least eight in 10 of each group sees white-Asian relations as good, and between 63% and 72% of each group views white-Hispanic and white-black relations as good.

Where they differ most is their perceptions of black-Hispanic relations. Whites, at 56%, are far less likely to say black-Hispanic relations are good than are blacks, at 76%. Hispanics’ views of black-Hispanic relations fall in between, at 64%.

In the years Gallup has asked this question, blacks have been substantially more positive than whites about black-Hispanic relations, with Hispanics more positive than whites but less positive than blacks…

Apparently, white people still don’t realize blacks and Hispanics are incapable of being racist. That is, unless they are white Hispanics.
