Who's to Blame?

A Pew Research Center poll recently released asked Americans whether they believe racism is responsible for the social and economic conditions faced by African-Americans; 63 percent said no. Ideology played a role: 80 percent of "steadfast conservatives" shared this view, while 80 percent of "solid liberals" believe that discrimination does play a role.
