Majority Of White Americans Say They Believe Whites Face Discrimination

“A majority of whites say discrimination against them exists in America today, according to a poll from NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.  More than half of whites — 55 percent — surveyed say that, generally speaking, they believe there is discrimination against white people in America today.  Notable, however, is that while a majority of whites in the poll say discrimination against them exists, a much smaller percentage say that they have actually experienced it. Also important to note is that 84 percent of whites believe discrimination exists against racial and ethnic minorities in America today.”
