White Americans feel they are more discriminated against than blacks
The results, published in the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science, showed that on average blacks saw anti-white bias rising slightly from 1.4 in the 1950s to 1.8 today.
Blacks also perceived that racism against themselves had steeply declined from 9.7 in the 1950s to 6.1 in the 90s.
White respondents, however, saw a very different picture.
For the 2000s, 11 per cent of whites gave anti-white bias the maximum 10 out of 10 rating, compared with only two per cent of whites who did so for anti-black bias.
Whites believed that discrimination against them had increased from an average of 1.8 in the 1950s to 4.7 in the 2000s.

I have as much issue with the validity of this as the ones veg posted and for the same reasons. With that said, as a young, white male it does often seem that I am considered politically incorrect by definition, and that's not a good feeling. Many people still talk about "The White Man" as being evil. Well, I am the white man and I don't think I'm evil, yet it seems the only way I can be seen as not racist is to call myself evil. It sucks and, while I know what blacks and other minorities have gone and are going through is worse, it's still a label I don't deserve but have to carry. It's not reverse racism. There's nothing reverse about it. It's racism and it's just as wrong as anything whites did to others.

I have a problem with using a survey to measure racism. I just don't think racism is something that can be objectively measured at all. That's my issue.

No, it's nonsense.
They are the Majority, they hold most of the power, and they have NEVER had it tough in this country.
I don't want to hear any whining.
This is like the Christians saying that they are persecuted in a country where 70% of the population believes what they believe.Logic and reason is all you need.
