Interesting Graph

The graph on this post is very interesting. Over the past year the percentage, nationally, of blacks saying race relations are good/bad has changed from 30%/60% to 60%/30%. (I’m assuming the missing 10% had no opinion or weren’t sure.) Interesting. I wonder if that flip in opinion shows up at the local level too.

(This isn’t as silly a question as it sounds. If you ask people if schools in america are troubled or if congress sucks they overwhelmingly say yes. If you ask them if their school system or congressman suck, they overwhelmingly say no.)

  1. this is interesting. I’m considering what to do with the info–and wondering if it reflects my students’ perceptions..
