Poll: New Yorkers’ views on race relations remain steady
A new Siena poll finds there is little change in New Yorkers’ view of race relations.
According to the poll, 36% of those polled consider race relations to be excellent or good. It was 31% last year. In addition, 41%, consider them only to be fair.
More than 70% of voters continue to say that both racial and religious minorities experience discrimination.
In addition, 52% of those polled say minority New Yorkers have the same opportunities as white New Yorkers, and 41% didn’t think so.
