Americans Want Racial Diversity More Than Ever Before

By J.C. Tuccille, Reason

People are increasingly tolerant of racial minorities.

From protests inspired by the police murder of George Floyd, to the 1619 project at The New York Times, to battles over curricula inspired by controversial “anti-racism” ideology, the United States seems to be at a moment of reckoning over race relations. And yet, while there’s no question that racially charged conflicts have spread across the country, it’s not at all obvious that Americans are especially racist today. If you compare headlines with polling data, it looks like politicians, activists, and the media are ginning up racial disagreements even as people become increasingly accepting of those from different backgrounds.
