Surveying Post-Zimmerman America

Polling America:  
Race and Racism Still Matters
This data from both a recent ABCNews Poll and a Pew Poll. It is obvious that deepseated racial denial is at the heart of white racism. It is also obvious that younger whites are moving towards at least recognizing that they have to deal with issues of race and racism.... But they still have a long long way to go.

One thing is clear, the killing of Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of Zimmerman has struck a united chord across class and gender lines within Black America.
