Roughly half of all Americans — 49% — say racism is a “big problem” in society today, according to a nationwide poll conducted by CNN and the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The figure marks a significant shift from just four years ago, when slightly more than a quarter of Americans described racism that way. It’s also higher than in 1995, when 41% said racism was a “big problem.”
Full results from the poll release at 10 p.m. on “CNN Tonight with Don Lemon” and at CNN.com/RaceandReality.
