A new survey has found that more Americans see black people as racist than white people or even Hispanics.

Thirty seven percent of American adults spoken to by respected pollsters Rasmussen think that African American citizens hold racist views, as opposed to just 15 percent of white Americans.

Indeed, even the black adults the survey spoke to, 31 percent said they considered people of their own race to be racist while only 24-percent thought that white people were bigoted.

From an ideological point of view, almost 50 percent of conservative Americans think that blacks are racist as opposed to only 12 percent of white people.

Interestingly, the 21 percent of liberal voters who see black people as racist is almost as high as the 27 percent who see white people as racist.

 

However, on purely partisan lines, 49 percent of Republicans believe that black Americans are racist while only 29 percent of Democrats think that. Among independent voters, 36 percent think that black people in the U.S. are racist.

Across the country, as a nation, 18 percent of people think that Hispanic Americans are racially biased, while black Americans think that 15 percent of Hispanic people have unreconstructed views.
