University of Texas Study Finds Racial Differences Among Teens on Issues of Affirmative Action and School Desegregation

A study conducted by the Gender and Racial Attitudes Lab at the University of Texas finds that African-American teenagers are more supportive of affirmative action and efforts to end school racial segregation than their white peers. The research showed that white teenagers were actually more knowledgeable about U.S. racial history than black teenagers. But whites were less likely than blacks to express the opinion that racial inequalities persist in the United States.
