  • Racial Attitudes: Summary of updates | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    universal support For example in 1942 the vast majority 68 percent of whites thought that whites and blacks should go to separate schools in 1995 when the question was last asked this had dropped to just 4 percent Schuman et al 1997 What is noteworthy and revealing is that many of the survey questions that tap attitudes toward the principle of equality are no longer included on major national surveys they have simply become universally accepted by whites Interestingly the only principle question that continues to be included in surveys is one about whether there should be laws against inter racial marriage In the mid 1990s 13 percent of whites still supported such laws by 2002 this had dropped only slightly to 10 percent but both levels reflect considerable long term change since in 1963 62 percent of whites supported such a law see Figure 1 Figure 1 Trend in White Support for Laws Against Inter Racial Marriage NORC Implementation of Equal Treatment The clear trend toward more liberal racial attitudes is not matched when the question becomes one of support for the implementation of the principle of equality Whites are less willing to endorse action at the local or federal level to ensure the principle of equality than they are to support the abstract principle Just three questions about implementation have been included on surveys since 1997 and they cover the arenas of schools jobs and housing In the first few years of the new century whites have been asked about their support for the federal government s role in ensuring that black and white children go to the same schools and that blacks are treated fairly in jobs In the case of both of these questions the highest levels of support for federal government intervention were in the late 1970s since that time if anything outright support for government involvement has declined Figure 2 Trend in White Support for Federal Job Implementation ISR In the case of both schools and jobs in recent years only about 1 out of 3 whites thought the government should see to it that blacks and whites are treated equally but this does not reflect an increase in those saying the government should stay out Rather whites increasingly decline to state a position instead indicating that they have not been concerned or interested enough about it to favor one side over the other see Figure 2 The trend for this question may reflect a pattern of increasing racial apathy rather than increasing hostility toward federal government implementation Forman 2004 Alternatively whites may be increasingly using the no interest response as a way to avoid stating a clear position on the issue Berinsky 1999 Social desirability pressures may lead white respondents to decline to answer rather than give an answer that may be interpreted as racially conservative One additional analysis lends indirect and tentative support for this social desirability interpretation The relationship between attitudes measured by the school implementation question and respondent s level
