UALR adds Hispanics to racial survey

Posted By on Thu, Mar 17, 2011 at 12:15 PM

Now in its eighth year, the UALR survey on racial attitudes in Pulaski County expanded to cover Hispanics this year.

You can see the full report and tables here.

Hispanics feel they have not been treated very well compared with whites and both Hispanics and blacks said they had experienced unfair treatment in the last 30 days.

Some findings, from the UALR release:

Blacks, whites, and Hispanics are most likely to rate marriage as “very important” over any other value.

Blacks and Hispanics are more likely than whites to say living a religious life or being wealthy is “very important.”

Nearly three in four Hispanics say newcomers to the U.S. strengthen American customs and values.

Blacks are more than three times as likely as Hispanics to say the president shares “a lot” of values with them.

Blacks consistently perceive more social conflict and greater degrees of social conflict than whites and Hispanics.

Blacks perceive lower levels of conflict between blacks and Hispanics than Hispanics do.

Hispanics perceive fewer conflicts in their relationships with whites than they do in their relationships with blacks.

Blacks perceive the greatest degree of conflict between the rich/poor, the young/old.

Hispanics perceive the lowest degree of conflict between the rich/poor, the young/old and immigrants/those born in the United States.

Blacks are most likely to identify themselves as Democrats, and Hispanics are most likely to identify themselves as Independent.

Blacks and Hispanics are more likely than whites to believe opposition to Obama’s policies is due to racism.

Blacks and Hispanics trust others to a lesser degree than whites.

In general, whites from outside Little Rock trust others to a lesser degree than whites within Little Rock city limits.

Blacks, whites, and Hispanics trust the people at their place of worship more than they do any other group of people.

Blacks are the group least likely to trust their own racial/ethnic group “a lot.”

The majority of blacks and Hispanics believe they are treated “not very well” compared to whites.

Both blacks and Hispanics report having been victims of unfair treatment in common situations during the past 30 days.

Approximately one-third of blacks, whites, and Hispanics say they had not interacted with friends of a different racial/ethnic group at home or outside the home during the last year.

Blacks and whites engage in more social interaction with each other than they do with Hispanics.
