Nearly half of Americans think Black people face a lot of discrimination, survey says

Most Americans say that people of color in the United States face at least some discrimination, according to a survey published Thursday by the Pew Research Center.

A new survey shows that 80% of Americans believe there is “algunos” o “a lotof discrimination against Black people. Seventy-six percent say the same about Hispanic people, while 70% hold the same view about Asian people.
Pew said it conducted the survey between March 1 and March 7, before the killings of six Asian women in the Atlanta area this week.
      Participants were asked to mark how much discrimination different ethnic groupsBlack people, Hispanic people, White people and Asian peoplefaced, eithera lot,” “algunos,” “only a little” o “none at all.
        Nearly half of respondents, 46%, said Black people facea lotof discriminationa number that has gone up from 2017, when only 39% of respondents said the same.
          Sobre 30% of respondents said Hispanic people facea lotof discrimination, y 27% said the same about Asian people. For Hispanic people, that number has gone down from 2017, cuando 34% said they facea lotof discrimination. Pew did not provide previous data regarding discrimination against Asian people.
          Parameters for what constituteda lotof discrimination versus “algunos” discrimination were not specified by Pew.
          Pero 40% of respondents also said White people face at least “algunos” discrimination, con 14% saying White people facea lotof discrimination, Pew said. Most people who said that were White, Pew said, with about half of White adult respondents saying White people face at least some discrimination.
          The survey also looked beyond racial discrimination. It asked respondents about discrimination faced by Muslims, gay and lesbian people, mujer, Jewish people, and Evangelical Christians.
            Majorities of Americans say that Muslims, Jews, gays and lesbians, and women all face at least some discrimination in today’s society, while fewer than half (44%) say that Evangelical Christians face some or a lot of discrimination,” Pew said.
            The data comes after a wave of racial reckoning in the US following the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor last year, as well as in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has disproportionately affected Black and brown people.
