We also found that the vast majority of Black Americans and Hispanic/Latino Americans feel mistreated. By contrast, 20% of white Americans report feeling discriminated against.
Despite the recent news coverage, 37% of white Americans remain unaware of the increase in assaults, hate crimes, or other forms of racism against Asian Americans during the past 12 months.
The number of Americans who say anti-Asian American racism isn’t a problem that should be addressed. This number is even higher for respondents who identify as Republican.
When asked to provide three adjectives to describe Asian Americans, respondents used words that were highly consistent with stereotypes that have been used to describe Asian Americans for over 50 years.
