The U.S. is one of the most racially polarized countries in the world, according to new research from Pew Research Center.
The survey found that 57 percent of Americans consider white people to be “less moral” than black people.
This figure has more than doubled since 2008.
The majority of Americans, however, believe white people should be held more responsible for racial issues.
It’s the most consistent finding in the survey, and it’s an important one because it shows that Americans still feel the pain of racism.
It also shows how racially charged issues continue to be front and center, says Pew’s Christopher Wlezien.
“The idea of ‘race-based prejudice’ has been around for a while, but there’s been very little research into how pervasive it is,” he says.
“It’s really important to think about this as being in the public consciousness.”
White Americans are still more likely to feel racial bias than black Americans, Pew says, but white Americans are also more likely than black and Hispanic Americans to be willing to admit they have been prejudiced.
The percentage of white Americans who admit to having been prejudged has remained essentially flat in the past 10 years.
The gap between whites and blacks and Hispanics, however is growing.
“These attitudes have been increasing over time and that’s a problem because they’re really undermining our efforts to change racism,” Wlezian says.
This survey found:The U.K. is also a nation of mixed race people, but its racism has gotten more severe over the years.
Pew found that 62 percent of Britons have a negative view of black people, compared with 39 percent of whites.
This was largely due to the country’s controversial police use of stop and search policies.
Britain also has more people who consider themselves “biracial,” meaning they are either white, black, or Asian, compared to whites.
“There is a lot of racism, but I think there’s also a lot that is more benign than people think,” says Andrew Guevara, an associate professor at the University of Michigan.
“People are still quite open about it.”
