The Worlds Value Survey and a Pew Poll shows America is among the least racist and most tolerant countries in the world. So we can definitely conclude safely that racism is not in Americas DNA as Obama has proclaimed.
THE WORLDS VALUE SURVEY: Two Swedish Economist looked at the Worlds Value Survey to conclude The United States of America is “among the most racially tolerant countries in the world”.
The survey asked respondents in more than 80 different countries to identify kinds of people they would not want as neighbors. “People of another race” was one option to chose. The Swedish Economist said “the more frequently that people in a given country say they don’t want neighbors from other races” the economists reasoned “the less racially tolerant you could call that society”.
As seen in the Globe Graph above, as indicated by dark blue, less that 5% of Americans said they would not want to live next door to someone of another race. You can also see that both north and south America scored rather well. India and Jordan are the least racially tolerant countries in the world with over 40% of their population answering they did not want to live next door to someone of another race. And almost all of Africa did not score very well according to the survey.
The fact that less than 5% of the Americans polled said they would not want to live next door to someone of another race proves that America and Americans are not near as racist as a lot of people say. You can see more information from the study here.
PEW POLL: The Poll asked 1503 Americans,,, “On balance, do you think having an increasing number of people of many different races, ethnic groups and nationalities in the United States makes this country a better place to live, a worse place to live, or doesn’t make much difference either way?”
As seen in the graph below, less that 5% of the Americans polled said having more people of more races and ethnicities would make the US a worse place to live. And 64% responded saying that more people of more races and ethnicities would actually make the US a better place to live.
This poll is another strong indicator that the United States of America is not all that racist but is actually a very racially tolerant country. So share this post with people when they go to ragging on America and falsely saying the USA is a racist country. You can see the poll here.
