So many other things. Sentiment may be declining but on specific issues and on statistics it's not doing bad. Sentiment would obviously decline given the president and the instant access to media. Either way hardly the end of the United States or universal opposition to diversity.
Thank you for posting these surveys.
So with the first one, 2.4% of American adults report being two or more races, so still very much a minority group.
Support for the protests before the violence existed, yes, but it's crucial that that was before the violence.
With Black imprisonment, well, that's certainly a win for the Black population, but it's unlikely to improve race relations.
Increasing intermarriage is an interesting factor, although still uncommon and I'd be very surprised if that became sufficient to engineer a majority mixed-race population in the US and dissolve different racial identities.
The last one about illegal immigrants, again that's quite an interesting find, although I wonder how much effect the use of children had for that one.
When I speak of opposition to diversity, I'm not assuming it's universal. My argument was that in the long run, it will become necessary because the situation is not likely to improve from now, in my view. With skyrocketing crime in large cities amidst the defunding of police and an invigorated radical movement which is determined on extracting reparations from white people who are soon to be a minority, I'm not particularly optimistic about race relations in America going forward. Perhaps some sort of authoritarian police state will emerge under which all the factions can be kept in line, but even that can't last forever. A lot of my thoughts are of course inspired by what I see happening in Britain, which perhaps might influence me in a way more negative than warranted for America, given I don't live there and can't directly experience it. Although at the same time, I can't ignore what I've seen elsewhere from many who do live in America and take the view that most people are at least implicitly opposed to diversity (no matter what race they are). White liberals are definitely less likely to identify according to race, but the problem is that they often become atomised individuals, cut off from a sense of community, which is not a healthy state for any human to be in. Black Americans and Hispanic Americans (and others) are much more in tune with their sense of ethnicity and community than are Whites. It seems the divide between White liberals and White conservatives is much starker than I perhaps realised, with the two groups living in completely different worlds more than I ever thought they did, or at least perceiving that to be the case. Something I have noticed though is that those who live away from diversity and live comfortable lives are sometimes more likely to support that diversity, whereas those who live in its midst are often not quite so pleased with it.
