Study: 3 of 4 Whites Have No Non-White Friends

Friends

The Wonkblog over at the Washington Post has a pretty interesting write-up of new research from the Public Religion Research Institute. In a study of race and friendship, PRRI found that a large majority (75 percent) of whites have “entirely white social networks without any minority presence.” And, for what it’s worth, the same holds true for less than two thirds of Blacks.

The research went on to state that, in a 100-friend scenario, the average white person has 91 white friends; one each of black, Latino, Asian, mixed race, and other races; and three friends of unknown race. On the other hand, the average black person has 83 black friends, in addition eight white friends, two Latino friends, zero Asian friends, three mixed race friends, one other race friend, and four friends of unknown race.

Ultimately, the average black person’s network of friends is 8 percent white.  The average white person’s friend network is just 1 percent black. The Wonkblog illustrated the stats pretty well with this infographic:

Do you think the racial background of a person’s friends is important, does it imply something about that person? Does having a diverse friend network provide special insights into racial matters? Finally, if the average white person has so few black friends, how is that so many seem to have a “best” black friend to excuse their questionable behavior in when it comes to race? Things that make you go “hmmmm.”

Big Surprise: Whites Polled Say Race Isn’t A Factor In Ferguson

o-WOMAN-CONFUSED-facebook

Racial tensions have grown in the days since unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown was black. Darren Wilson, the officer who shot him at least six times, is white. Then, almost immediately after Brown’s killing was made public, throngs of mostly black protesters hit the streets of Ferguson to demand justice. They were met by a almost completely white police force. Despite this pretty obvious dynamic, a majority of whites polled recently about the situation in Ferguson seem to think race isn’t a factor.

new HuffPost/YouGov poll found that the majority of whites polled (40%) believe Brown’s killing was an isolated incident. Slightly fewer (35%) said they believe it represents a broader pattern of how police treat Black men. Black Americans, however, agree in large part (76%) that Brown’s killing is part of a broader pattern. It’s important to note, however, that 6% of Blacks polled said they believe it was an isolated incident. 

The survey went a step further in asking if the protests, police response were reasonable and breaking down respondents by political party. Check out the results below.

Poll: Most Black Voters Support Voter ID Laws

black-early-voter-thumb-400xauto-138761

“The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act was passed in to law nearly five decades ago…The real voter fraud is people trying to deny our rights by making voting harder in the first place.”

President Barack Obama, 2014 National Action Network Convention in New York City.

Though many believe them to be an effort at voter disenfranchisement, a recent poll suggest most Americans are actually in support of voter identification laws, perhaps making them harder to combat.

A total of 31 states have active voter ID laws. Many others have had their attempts to institute the laws stuck down and state court with opponents citing little to no evidence of fraud in past elections and the potential of the laws to disenfranchisement the elderly, young people and many voters of color.

For what it’s worth, A FOX News poll released last week found strong support for voter ID laws in every major demographic, including black respondents and Democrats. The poll asked, “Supporters of these laws say they are necessary to stop ineligible people from voting illegally. Opponents say these laws are unnecessary and mostly discourage legal voters from voting. What do you think?”

How Do Most Americans Feel About Voter ID Laws?

According to the poll, seven in 10 registered voters are in favor of identification laws.

How Do Blacks Feel About Voter ID Laws?

Perhaps it’s no surprise but opposition to the laws is highest among black respondents at 46 percent. The poll did find however that a slim majority, 51 percent of black voters, support them.

The poll surveyed 1,025 registered voters and margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent. Read more.
