Poll: Many Americans Don’t Like Black People or Mormons
Both the Mormon and the African-American communities still face prejudices in America. This information is striking considering how views on both communities have been shifting since Mitt Romney (a mormon) and Barack Obama (African-American) ran in the presidential election back in 2008.
Great numbers of voters have confessed that they would not be comfortable if a close relative decided to marry someone who was either black or Mormon. The Washington Post and ABC News did a poll that showed that Mormons are not trusted by people outside of their community.
The poll shows that 20 percent of voters would not want a Mormon to marry into their family, and 14 percent said they would not wants an African American to marry in either. Whites who live in communities with fewer African Americans were the ones who were more likely to express that viewpoint, since they were less likely to be exposed to all kinds of black people. The same geographic factors do not apply as much to Mormons.
