Nearly half of young white males in Generation Z believe efforts to increase diversity harm white people, according to a new wide ranging survey from the Public Religion Research Institute.
PRRI conducted the survey with a random sample of 2,023 young people age 15-24 who are part of market research company GfK's YouthPulse panel. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points and was conducted online between July 19 and August 3, 2017 in both English and Spanish.
Nearly one-third of young people, and almost half of white young men, say efforts to increase diversity harm white people.Forty-three percent of young white males say discrimination against whites "is as serious a problem as discrimination against other groups."
More than 1 in 3 white young people believe “reverse” discrimination is a serious problem.
• White young men are more likely than white young women (43% vs. 29%, respectively) to say discrimination against whites is as serious a problem as discrimination against other groups.Most young white males also don't believe women face very much discrimination:
Young men and women have starkly different views on gender discrimination.
They don't identify as feminists:
Nearly four in ten (39%) young people say they consider themselves to be feminist. Six in ten (60%) say they do not. Willingness to adopt this label varies significantly among young people, by race, ethnicity, gender, education, and region.They don't view racism as much of a problem:
Young people are somewhat divided over whether they believe racism is more of a problem for “other generations” than it is for their own generation. Close to half (45%) of young people agree that “racism is more of a problem for other generations than it is for my generation,” while a majority (55%) disagree.
They don't believe "black people have gotten less than they deserve in recent years":
There is a considerable divergence of opinion in the views of white young men and women. While fewer than four in ten (38%) white young men agree that black people have gotten less than they deserve in recent years, a majority (54%) of white young women express this view. More than six in ten (62%) white young men do not believe black people have gotten less than they deserve over the past few years.They're the most likely to support Trump's wall:
Opinions on building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border vary somewhat by race, but a majority of all racial and ethnic groups oppose its construction. Close to two-thirds (64%) of white young people and overwhelming majorities of Hispanic (80%), black (87%), and API young people (92%) oppose the construction of a wall along the border. About one-third (35%) of white young people support this policy. White young men are somewhat more likely than young women to favor building a wall (43% vs. 29%, respectively).They also support Trump's travel ban:
The issue reveals stark racial and ethnic divisions among young people. White young people (45%) are more than twice as likely as their black (20%) and API peers (15%) to support temporarily banning people from some majority Muslim countries from entering the U.S. Fewer than three in ten (29%) Hispanic young people say the same. A slim majority (51%) of white young men favor temporarily preventing people from majority Muslim countries from entering the U.S., a view that is shared by substantially fewer (37%) white young women.
No group of young people is more supportive of banning people from Muslim countries from entering the U.S. than young white evangelical Protestants. Seven in ten (70%) white evangelical Protestant young people favor temporarily banning people from some majority Muslim countries from entering the U.S., as do a majority (56%) of young white Catholics. Fewer than half (44%) of young white mainline Protestants express support for the travel restriction. In contrast, only one-third (33%) of religiously non-Christian young people, and fewer than one-quarter of Hispanic Catholic (23%), religiously unaffiliated (23%), and black Protestant young people (20%) are in favor of restricting travel by people coming from majority Muslim countries.Unfortunately, they're inheriting a deeply divided country thanks to post-1965 mass immigration.
