When it come to blacks inability to succeed, 63 percent of the American population feels that it’s their fault.
The findings come as part of a poll conducted by the Pew Research Center. In their report, “Beyond Red vs Blue: The Political Typology,” researchers collected data via a national survey of 10,1013 adults between January 23-March 16, 2014.
From Pew Research Center:
While the public is divided over whether additional societal changes are needed to further racial equality, most do not believe that discrimination is the main reason why many blacks can’t get ahead today.
By more than two-to-one (63%-27%), the public says blacks who can’t get ahead are mostly responsible for their own condition. This view is widely held across the three Republican-oriented groups, with at least eight-in-ten taking the position. Smaller majorities of the Democratic-leaning Next Generation Left (68%) and Hard-pressed Skeptics (63%) say that blacks who can’t get ahead are mostly responsible for their own condition.
Americans’ views varied greatly depending on their political leanings.
Those described as “steadfast conservatives” had the strongest belief that blacks were responsible for their current state in life (80 percent).
Studies continue to show just how disconnected the American population is to the struggle of blacks.
