Worlds Value Survey and Pew Poll says less than 5% of Americans are Racist

The Worlds Value Survey and a Pew Poll shows America is among the least racist and most tolerant countries in the world. So we can definitely conclude safely that racism is not in Americas DNA as Obama has proclaimed.


THE WORLDS VALUE SURVEY: Two Swedish Economist looked at the Worlds Value Survey to conclude The United States of America is “among the most racially tolerant countries in the world”.

The survey asked respondents in more than 80 different countries to identify kinds of people they would not want as neighbors. “People of another race” was one option to chose. The Swedish Economist said “the more frequently that people in a given country say they don’t want neighbors from other races” the economists reasoned “the less racially tolerant you could call that society”.

As seen in the Globe Graph above, as indicated by dark blue, less that 5% of Americans said they would not want to live next door to someone of another race. You can also see that both north and south America scored rather well. India and Jordan are the least racially tolerant countries in the world with over 40% of their population answering they did not want to live next door to someone of another race. And almost all of Africa did not score very well according to the survey.

The fact that less than 5% of the Americans polled said they would not want to live next door to someone of another race proves that America and Americans are not near as racist as a lot of people say. You can see more information from the study here.

PEW POLL: The Poll asked 1503 Americans,,, “On balance, do you think having an increasing number of people of many different races, ethnic groups and nationalities in the United States makes this country a better place to live, a worse place to live, or doesn’t make much difference either way?”

As seen in the graph below, less that 5% of the Americans polled said having more people of more races and ethnicities would make the US a worse place to live. And 64% responded saying that more people of more races and ethnicities would actually make the US a better place to live.

This poll is another strong indicator that the United States of America is not all that racist but is actually a very racially tolerant country. So share this post with people when they go to ragging on America and falsely saying the USA is a racist country. You can see the poll here.

The number of Black People killed by Cops has decreased 70% in the last 40-50 years


Has the number of black people getting killed by cops declined? According to The Center of Juvenile and Criminal Justice (CJCJ) and The Centers for Disease Control (CDC),,, yes they have,, dramatically.

The CJCJ reports that a study done by the CDC found that “the rate of police killings of African Americans has fallen by 70 percent over the last 40-50 years”, specifically from 1968 to 2011, while the number of white people killed by cops has risen very slightly during that time period.

The study says “In the late 1960s, nearly 100 young black men under age 25 were killed by law enforcement every year. Even as the black youth and young adult population doubled over the last 40 years, police shootings of young black men fell to around 35 per year in the 2000s, a rate decline of 79 percent. While younger African Americans were the victims in 1 in 4 killings by police in the 1968-74 period and 1 in 7 in 1975-84, today, that proportion is 1 in 10. Similarly, police killings of African Americans 25 and older have declined by 61 percent since the late 1960s”

The study also found that “the racial group most likely to be killed by law enforcement is Native American”

Blacks are 160 times more likely to die at the hands of another black person than police

just-the-facts-600x330

According to criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson’s research of FBI reports from January 2009 to December 2012, 112 blacks died in both justified and unjustified police killings, while blacks killed 17,888 other blacks during this period. That’s an average of 28 blacks killed by cops each year and average of 4,472 blacks killed by other blacks each year. Literally, that means that blacks are 160 times more likely to die at the hands of another black person than police.

You can see that research here.

Poor teens who graduate high school, get a job and do not get pregnant out of marriage move to middle class

3_easy_steps

THE BROOKING INSTITUTE: Policy aimed at promoting economic opportunity for poor children must be framed within three stark realities. First, many poor children come from families that do not give them the kind of support that middle-class children get from their families. Second, as a result, these children enter kindergarten far behind their more advantaged peers and, on average, never catch up and even fall further behind. Third, in addition to the education deficit, poor children are more likely to make bad decisions that lead them to drop out of school, become teen parents, join gangs and break the law.

In addition to the thousands of local and national programs that aim to help young people avoid these life-altering problems, we should figure out more ways to convince young people that their decisions will greatly influence whether they avoid poverty and enter the middle class. Let politicians, schoolteachers and administrators, community leaders, ministers and parents drill into children the message that in a free society, they enter adulthood with three major responsibilities: at least finish high school, get a full-time job and wait until age 21 to get married and have children.

Our research shows that of American adults who followed these three simple rules, only about 2 percent are in poverty and nearly 75 percent have joined the middle class (defined as earning around $55,000 or more per year). There are surely influences other than these principles at play, but following them guides a young adult away from poverty and toward the middle class.

Consider an example. Today, more than 40 percent of American children, including more than 70 percent of black children and 50 percent of Hispanic children, are born outside marriage. This unprecedented rate of nonmarital births, combined with the nation’s high divorce rate, means that around half of children will spend part of their childhood—and for a considerable number of these all of their childhood — in a single-parent family. As hard as single parents try to give their children a healthy home environment, children in female-headed families are four or more times as likely as children from married-couple families to live in poverty. In turn, poverty is associated with a wide range of negative outcomes in children, including school dropout and out-of-wedlock births.

It is sometimes said that Americans are turning their back on the marriage culture. The high divorce rate, soaring nonmarital birth rate and consequent rise of single-parent families are certainly weakening marriage as an institution. But look again and discover that college-educated women have high marriage rates, low nonmarital birthrates, and low divorce rates. The marriage culture seems to be alive and well for those with a college degree. These families usually not only have enough money to afford good schools for their children, but they also provide a stable family environment that allows children to flourish.

The recent attacks by Planned Parenthood on Michael Bloomberg, New York City’s mayor, for launching a campaign designed to inform teenagers of the consequences of teen pregnancy provides a good example of how many in our society face the effects of nonmarital births on teen mothers and their children. In one of the campaign posters, a baby with tears rolling down his face says: “I’m twice as likely not to graduate high school because you had me as a teen.” Another shows a girl saying to her mom: “Chances are he won’t stay with you. What happens to me?” Planned Parenthood criticized the ads, displayed in the subway and bus shelters, for ignoring racial and economic factors that contribute to teen pregnancy. Other critics say the ads stigmatize teen parents and their children.

Granted, most teen moms are from low-income families and face a number of barriers to success. Along comes Bloomberg with a direct message to get the attention of teenage girls and warn them not to make their situation worse and to think more about their future. If the mother wants to improve her future by continuing her education, being a teenage parent is precisely the wrong way to do it. As for blaming the victim, no one is blaming the baby—yet the baby will also bear long-term consequences.

Teenagers are capable of understanding principles and of using them to help make decisions. Anyone who delivers messages to teens about the consequences of decisions that could affect them and others for many years should be praised not criticized.

Bloomberg should next launch a public campaign about the value of marriage to adults, children and society. There will be at least as many critics of this message as the message that young people should avoid teen pregnancy. Good. The bigger the controversy, the more the media will cover the debate, and the more the nation will have the opportunity to reflect on what is at stake. I am confident that most Americans will conclude that organizations like Planned Parenthood have it wrong, and Bloomberg has it right.
