U.S. Race Relations Improve

According to a CBS News/The New York Times poll, the state of race relations between blacks and whites in America is better now than in 2008. About 59% of African Americans along with 65% of whites characterize race relations as good compared to just 29% of blacks who felt the same almost a year ago. Some 87% of whites and 61% of African Americans say there’s been real progress in eradicating racial discrimination since the 1960s, that’s up 37% from polled responses by blacks in 1996.
