Just days before we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a new Siena poll is out looking at how New Yorkers feel about race relations in the state.
It finds that only 35 percent think it's excellent or good. That's down from 54 percent in 2013.
Nineteen percent have a negative view of race relations in the state.
Sixty-eight percent said ethnic and racial minorities experience discrimination. That number has not changed from last year.
Thirty percent people said they've been treated unfairly because of their race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.
The poll also asks about workplace sexual harassment.
