‘It’s Ok to Be White,’ Agree 72%, Including 53% Of Black People

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, February 22, 2023

Voters are not buying into “woke” racial politics and anti-white attacks from liberals, according to a new survey on the simmering “it’s OK to be white” pushback.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey shared with Secrets, 72% agreed with the statement, “It’s OK to be white.” Even a majority of black people, 53%, agreed.

What’s more, when asked if voters agreed or disagreed with the statement, “Black people can be racist, too,” 79% agreed, including 66% of black people.


In its analysis, Rasmussen said:

“Support for ‘OK to be white’ crosses political lines. Majorities of Democrats (51%), Republicans (73%), and those not affiliated with either major party (52%) strongly agree that ‘It’s OK to be white.'”

“Fewer Democrats (39%) than Republicans (67%) or the unaffiliated (53%) strongly agree that ‘Black people can be racist, too.’ Still, even among Democrats, only 19% disagree with that statement.”
