Race Relations in the United States (2003) Informal and Unscientific Survey (n=1599)

Vernellia R. Randall The University of Dayton

 

Editor Note: This survey about race relations in the United States should be viewed with extreme caution. While it gives us a snapshot of the views of 1599 persons, it cannot be extrapolated to any other population. The persons who completed this survey may different from the general population in significant ways. For instance, this sample had a computer or access to a computer and had a self-selected interested in race relations.  It is impossible to say whether that interest is more negative or more positive than the general population.  However, given that limitation, the results are both interesting and startling.
Background This online survey was conducted from January 1, 2003 through December 31, 2003. A total of 1599 persons completed the survey.  Age:  Gender:  Race:

How do you think  white people feel about minorities? minorities feel about white people?
Who do you think is more responsible for poor status of race relations in America?
