The study detailed that 51 percent of those surveyed think that racial discrimination will only get worse, while 37 percent believe that it will stay the same and only 11 percent believe that the situation will improve.

By age range, those interviewed between the ages of 50 and 64 are the ones who most consider that this scourge will worsen (57 percent of the total in this age range).

On the other hand, 43 percent of adults between 30 and 39 years of age believe that racial discrimination will improve or remain the same, this being the age range that is most inclined towards this trend. However, even in this segment, no more than 13 percent believe that racism can improve.

About 70 percent of those surveyed said that it is much more dangerous to be a teenager now than it was when they were. Likewise, more than 60 percent are concerned that someone they love could be attacked for having black skin.

80 percent of people of African descent in the US believe that the white population does not trust the black population, while only 17 percent believe that they do.

The study was carried out between April 28 and May 12, and for it, 1,225 non-Hispanic black adults and a partially overlapping sample of 1,018 adults were interviewed.
