DAILYKENN.com -- What America needs is a black president. Yep. That will mend the rift and heal the divide between black and white Americans.
Such were the musings of naive white Americans prior to the 2008 presidential election.
So how did it turn out?
Not well, according to Rasmussen Reports.
A record number of Americans believe race relations in America are at an all-time low.
Fifty percent of Americans say:
...race relations in this country are getting worse, up from 44% a year ago and 30% as recently as January 2014. Only 20% believe race relations are getting better, a new low that compares to 38% five years ago. Twenty-six percent (26%) say race relations are staying about the same.
Interestingly, unlike most questions related to race, there isn’t a wide difference of opinion on these questions between blacks and whites. Other minority Americans are the least pessimistic. — rasmussenreports.com
