“The results weren’t heartening. Overall, 46 percent of Millennials agree that the government pays too much attention to the problems of minorities, with 49 percent who disagree. 48 percent also agree that discrimination against whites is a genuine problem. When you disaggregate by race and count only white Millennials, the picture is much worse.
A solid majority of white Millennials, 56 percent, say that government has paid too much attention to the problems of blacks and other minorities. An even larger majority, 58 percent, say that “discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minorities.”
The “War Against White People” is a meme that resonates with a solid majority of White Millennials. This poll also needs to be seen in the context of the study that was released last year which showed that the perception of anti-White bias is increasing and is now considered a bigger problem than anti-black racism.
