Just a little fun fact for us white folks......

Did you know that white people are twice as likely to believe that Elvis is still alive than to believe that racism is still an issue?

I think we all need to come back to reality and realize the suffering of our fellow Americans.

  • I believe racism does occur, but that is also includes racism against white peple. Im just going to leave it at that, no sense in kicking a dead horse on this one.

  • Then I guess I am only half as likely since I am only half white lol. Seriously, I have dealt with racism and know its alive and well, and always will be. However I have never allowed it to cripple me or define me.

  • The only reason I'm saying "white people" is because that is who this survey was conducted on and if racism was an issue for white folks then why didn't they believe it's an issue. And by suffering I mean that they aren't given the life chances that others are given. It may not be death or starvation but to me it is an example or suffering.
