The University of Arkansas at Little Rock Institute on Race and Ethnicity's 11th annual report on racial attitudes in Pulaski County finds that "The lost decade of the middle class" — the years since 2000 when the class began to shrink in wealth — "has affected many Pulaski County residents."

The report, "Money, Class and Opportunity," based on 2,000 interviews conducted by telephone, will be released at the institute's 2014 Racial Attitudes in Pulaski County Forum" from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, April 17, at the Ron Robinson Theatre. "Although some differences do emerge," the report finds, "those effects have been felt by the whole community to a greater or lesser extent — black, white, and Hispanics alike."

The theater is in the Arcade Building on River Market Avenue; the entrance is on the south side of the building. State Sen. Joyce Elliott of Little Rock will moderate. Here are some key findings from the report:

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
