Poll: Majority of US whites say whites are discriminated against

A new poll by America's National Public Radio (NPR) found that a considerable majority of white Americans say they believe white people face discrimination in the United States.

Published: October 26, 2017, 1:55 pm

    Some 55 percent of white Americans said, “generally speaking”, they “believe there is discrimination against whites in America today”.

    When asked whether they have been “personally discriminated against because they are white,” 19 percent of white Americans responded “yes” when they had applied for jobs.

    Some 13 percent of white Americans said they had felt discriminated against regarding equal pay or promotions at work while 11 percent said when applying for college entrance or while being at college, they had felt discrimination.

    Among those who believe anti-white discrimination is a societal issue, 26 percent said laws and government policies fostered anti-white bias, while 61 percent said discrimination was based in the prejudice of individuals. Eleven percent said both the government and individual perceptions were equally a problem.

    But not only whites felt discriminated against, as all other races polled felt the same way.

    Affirmative action laws as well as programs at US colleges and in the workplace, loans and government contracts given only to coloured-owned businesses, are a current feature in the US.

    While all minority groups have race-based advocacy groups which explicitly advocate on their racial behalf, voices against anti-white discrimination have been labeled “Nazis” and “white supremacists”.

    The NPR falsely reported that, “data show[s] whites continue to be better off financially … than minority groups”, which is not the case.

    The reality is that Indian-Americans register the highest incomes in the United States, Jewish-Americans are second and Asian-Americans are third. A survey in 2013 found European Americans were only in seventh place.

    Standard Bank in South Africa released data last year which showed that between 1996-2014, the Indian/Asian population saw the fastest growth in per capita income, or 468 percent. Affirmative action is also a feature of racial legislation in the country, even though blacks are not a minority.

    Similarly, between 2011-2014, the Indian/Asian population saw the fastest growth in income per capita (28 percent), and coloureds had the slowest (20 percent).

    Intra-racial analysis shows that income inequality, as measured by Gini coefficient, is wider among black South Africans (0.58), and the gap has only grown wider since 1996 (0.53), despite black rule.

    The data found that among white South Africans, however, there was less income inequality (0.44), and it has become more equally distributed since 1996 (0.48).

    • This is a good thing, the more anti-White antagonism and discrimination, the better. Now they need to know who pushes the anti-White agenda, who owns media and academia, pushing the narrative into anti-White government policy. Make Whites aware who pushes the White Guilt, that requires a Great Replacement Atonement.
