Survey: Race Relations in America Worse Than 10 Years Ago

Results of a survey released by the National Bar Association shows that Americans, both Black and white, agree that race relations are better today than they were 50 years ago.

Despite that reality, most respondents believe race relations are worse now than 10 years ago. "Our national conversation about race has been going on for a long time, and it’s encouraging to see signs of progress," said Benjamin Crump, president of the National Bar Association. "However, 50 years of conversation is too long without seeing more movement and, to a certain extent, regression. This survey shows that clearly there remains work to be done."
