Study Shows 51% Of White Americans Strongly Support #BlackLivesMatter

A new study shows that most white folks strongly or somewhat support the Black Lives Matter movement despite what the #AllLivesMatter idiots believe reports NY Daily News:

Fifty-one percent of white Americans ages 18 to 30 now strongly or somewhat support the Black Lives Matter movement — a whopping 10% increase since June, a GenForward poll released Monday shows.

The first-of-its-kind poll surveys almost 2,000 young adults per month to see how high profile police shootings influence public opinion on the movement.

The sample is supposed to be representative of the U.S. young adult population.

This month’s poll comes as the country has seen fatal shootings at the hands of police officers in Baton Rouge, La. and St. Anthony, Minn. — both of which triggered massive protests across the country.

The race and ethnicity poll, conducted by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago and the Associated Press, also shows that 85% of African-Americans and 62% of Asian and Hispanic Americans below age 30 sympathize with the movement, which emerged in 2012 after Florida neighborhood vigilante George Zimmerman was acquitted in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.
