New Poll Provides a Starting Point on Race in the U.S.
 
Don’t know how you feel about telephone polling, but here, at least, is a mile marker for our times. CBS News and the New York Times took a poll from April 30 to May 5 that found, by extension, that 61 percent of Americans “now say race relations in the United States are bad,” the highest percentage since 1992.

In light of Baltimore, and the other manifestations of racial despair over the past year, that, of course, isn’t surprising. But it provides a starting point for any PR people, and we hope there are a number of them, who want to work earnestly on changing the current relational climate, for the long haul.
