What Do Americans Really Think?

Chris Roberts, American Renaissance, July 3, 2020

In December 1999, the New Century Foundation (the parent organization of American Renaissance) hired a professional research company to conduct a telephone survey, asking a representative sample of about 1,000 Americans what they thought about multiculturalism and diversity. The questions, and possible answers were:

(1) Would you rather live in a neighborhood where your race is in the majority, or one in which it is a minority?

a. Majority.
b. Minority.
c. Makes no difference.

(2) The Census Bureau predicts that if current levels of non-European immigration continue, in 40 or 50 years whites will become a minority in the United States. Overall, do you think this will be a good thing for the country or a bad thing for the country?

a. Good thing for the country.
b. Bad thing for the country.
c. Makes no difference.

(3) Until the 1960s, immigration to the United States was overwhelmingly from Europe. Now, with large-scale immigration from non-European countries, the United States is becoming more diverse in terms of race, language, religion and culture. Do you think this a good thing for the country or a bad thing for the country.

a. Good thing for the country.
b. Bad thing for the country.
c. Makes no difference.

We are considering conducting a similar survey this year. We would like input from our readers as to what questions we should ask. The same ones as in 1999 or new ones? If new ones, what should they be?

We are considering getting a sense of some of the things black people think, so it might be interesting to include questions like: (1) Does white society deliberately make guns and drugs available to the black community? (2) Will white people ever stop being racist? (3) Is life in America better, worse, or about the same for people of color as it was 50 years ago?
