Welcome to Obama’s “post-racial” America.
Nearly half (46 percent) of African Americans say they have “very little” confidence in the police to treat blacks and whites equally, according to a new USA Today/Pew Research Center poll.
As one might expect, that’s higher than the number of whites who say the same (12 percent). There is, after all, a wide gulf between how blacks and whites view police and also the criminal justice system in general. […]
It also shows 64 percent of African Americans think blacks and whites get along “very well” or “pretty well” — down from 76 percent five years ago. That’s even as relations between blacks and Hispanics as well as whites and Hispanics have been seen as improving over those same spans.
