Terror Threat: Racism is a 'big problem' to more (Black and Latino) Americans

Racism is a 'big problem' to more Americans, poll finds - CNN.com
Their voices are just a few in a country of more than 322 million people. But they are far from alone.
In a new nationwide poll conducted by CNN and the Kaiser Family Foundation, roughly half of Americans -- 49% -- say racism is "a big problem" in society today.

The figure marks a significant shift from four years ago, when over a quarter described racism that way. The percentage is also higher now than it was two decades ago. In 1995, on the heels of the O.J. Simpson trial and just a few years after the Rodney King case surged into the spotlight, 41% of Americans described racism as "a big problem."
Is racism on the rise in the United States? Has our awareness changed? Or is it a problem that's been blown out of proportion?


PressTV-‘US racial issues getting worse’
The issue of race in the United States will escalate, unless Washington decides to bring about “some real, fundamental changes” for the country's African-American population, says a journalist from Detroit.
In a phone interview with Press TV on Saturday, Abayomi Azikiwe, editor at the Pan-African News Wire, said, “There has been no fundamental change in racial issues in the United States, even though there is [an] African-American president.”
Azikiwe said President Barack Obama “has consistently ignored and denied the other side and that America still is institutionally racist and vastly unprecedented society.”

Is today's generation just as racist as their parents?
