Forty-six percent of teens and young adults believe African-Americans get the bulk of discriminatory remarks and images, according to a new survey by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MTV. But 64 percent believe that racial insults against Blacks are less likely to be considered intentionally hurtful. Also, 67 percent of young people believe racial attacks against Latinos are made mostly in a joking way.
