This negative view on race relations is unchanged regardless of ethnicity: 70 percent of Latinos, 75 percent of whites and 76 percent of African Americans believe race relations are bad in this country.
Despite this pessimism -which comes after the deaths of African Americans by police in Louisiana and Minnesota, as well as the assassination of five Dallas police officers – 64 percent of Americans believe relations between whites and African Americans will eventually be worked out, including 68 percent of whites, 56 percent of Latinos but just 47 percent of African Americans who say that.
The poll was released on a day when three more police officers were killed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Asked which candidate would deal better on racial problems between police and African Americans, 41 percent of voters say Hillary Clinton, 19 percent say Donald Trump and 33 percent say neither.
Whoever thinks electing Clinton is going to improve things really should have their heads examined.
My favorite part about the Obama era is all the racial healing.
