Why America Is Failing – ‘White Americans long for the 1950s, when they weren’t such victims of reverse discrimination’

This just baffled me.

‘On just about every measure of social or economic well-being, white Americans fare better than any other group’.

‘That’s true of housing and neighborhood quality and homeownership’.

‘That’s true of overall health, health insurance coverage rates, quality of health care received, life expectancy and infant mortality’.

‘That’s true when it comes to median household earnings, wealth (assets minus debt), retirement savings and even who has a bank account’.

‘That’s true when one actually looks at who is graduating from college, who holds the bulk of the nation’s high-paying and management jobs and who does not’.

But………..

‘In a new poll released by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) on Tuesday’,

‘a whopping 43 percent of Americans told researchers that discrimination against whites has become as large a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minority groups’.

‘And an even bigger share of Americans — 53 percent — told pollsters American culture and “way of life” have mostly changed for the worse since 1950’.
