The cohort of ill-minded Marxists professing the abominable and factually wrong “Critical Race Theory” has managed to make an impact as a recent poll shows that race relations between white and black people in the United States have hit their lowest point in over two decades.
Results from a poll published on Wednesday by Gallup show that only 42% of Americans deem relations between black folks and white folks to be “very” or “somewhat” good, while 57% view them as “somewhat” or “very” bad.
2021, whose first half so far has passed under the sign of the chaotic Biden presidency and the attempts to impose the malicious Critical Race Theory on the American public and innocent schoolchildren across the country, is actually the second year in a row to see record bad race relations in America.
That is, after 2020, which was marked by the violent looting and riots by Black Lives Matters in many of the nation’s major cities, and when the same poll found that 44% of Americans viewed black-white race relations as “very” or “somewhat” good.
In 2021, only 33% of black Americans have a positive assessment of race relations, while the number for white Americans is 43%.
What is also notable in a 2021 America plagued by the ever growing impudence of cultural Marxists is that there is a gap of more than 20 percentage points between blacks and whites when it comes optimism that the country would be able to achieve racial harmony.
Thus, while 66% of white adults are optimistic in that regard, the figure for black adults stands at only 40%.
Gallup, an analytics company based in Washington, DC, stated that “this is the largest gap” registered so far in its three decades of polling on black and white racial relations.
It calls the gap “particularly striking” considering that last year it registered a 10-point spike in the optimism of Black Americans.
In 2013, the United States saw a peak of 70% of all Americans who considered black and white race relations “somewhat good” or “very good”, according to Gallup polling.
However, since then the numbers have been deteriorating.
In 2015, just 53% believed that the relationship between the two major groups was positive.
The deterioration could be linked to Ferguson, Missouri, where on August 9, 2014, white police officer Darren Wilson shot 18-year-old black man Michael Brown.
Ever since then, far-left groups have been quick to blame the police and the American public, and, by implication, white Americans, for any case involving a black person, in which there is tougher police action.
