Three of Five Think Racial Discrimination Still a Problem in Wisconsin

A new poll shows that three of five Wisconsinites surveyed say discrimination against blacks is still a problem Monday.

The Badger Poll was conducted by the University of Wisconsin Survey Center and sponsored by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the Capital Times.

In the survey, half of the people across the state say discrimination against black people was a "somewhat serious" problem, while eleven percent say it's "very serious."

Five percent of those surveyed say discrimination is increasing, while 37-percent think it's decreasing, and 56-percent say it's about the same.

The poll results suggest that minorities are about three times as likely to consider discrimination against blacks to be a very serious problem.
