    Deep Divisions, Shared Destiny - A Poll of Black, Hispanic, and Asian Americans on Race Relations
    New America Media, Poll, Posted: Dec 12, 2007

    NEWS CONFERENCE WITH ETHNIC MEDIA AND CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS

    Washington, D.C. – Sergio Bendixen, of Bendixen & Associates and Sandy Close, Executive Director of New America Media will be joined by Richard Rodriguez, Author, NAM Editor and TV Commentator at a press conference -- Wednesday, December 12, at 10:00am at The National Press Club - Zenger Room - 529 14th Street NW Washington, D.C.-- to release the results of the nation’s first multilingual poll, which examines how the nation’s largest ethnic groups feel towards each other, as well as their attitudes on key elements of American society.

    Also joining in the press conference:
    - Dereje Desta, Editor/Publisher, Zethiopia Newspaper
    - Joshua Lee, Reporter, Korea Times

    METHODOLOGY OF POLL

    The poll of 1,105 African American, Asian American and Hispanic adults was conducted by telephone during the months of August and September 2007. The sample was designed to be representative of the adult population of the three major racial and ethnic minorities in the United States. Hispanic respondents were interviewed in English or Spanish, and Asian American respondents were interviewed in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Vietnamese or Tagalog. RDD (Random Digit Dialing) methodology was employed in areas of the country that have significant (10 percent or more) African American, Asian American and Hispanic populations.

    The study was designed and conducted by Bendixen & Associates, a public opinion research firm in Coral Gables, Florida. It was sponsored by New America Media. The poll was funded through the generous support of The Ford Foundation, Carnegie Corporation, The James Irvine Foundation, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Open Society Institute, The San Francisco Foundation, The California Endowment and The California Wellness Foundation.

    MAJOR FINDING

    The nation’s first multilingual poll of Black, Hispanic and Asian Americans has uncovered serious tensions among these ethnic groups, including mistrust and significant stereotyping, but a majority of each group also said they should put aside differences and work together to better their communities.

    The poll, which was released today during a news conference at the National Press Club, was sponsored by New America Media (NAM) and nine ethnic media outlets who are founding members of the organization.

    Interesting. The hispanics are courting the Asians and blacks to get them to support amnesty.

    INCORRECT!

    Some Hispanics are courting other minorities to try and push Amnesty.

    Must I remind you that 7% of ALIPAC's supporters are Hispanic. Considering Hispanics make up 13% of the US population, the support levels at ALIPAC confirm the other polls showing approximately 55+% of the legal Hispanics in America oppose Amnesty and illegal immigration. A majority even favor cracking down and English as the official language.

    You should never make blanket statements about any race on our boards.

    You should never alienate our minority supporters as ALIPAC defends both our design and practice of welcoming Americans of all races and walks of life to our cause.

    [quote]The poll found that friction between ethnic and racial groups, which at times has erupted into highly-publicized incidents around the country, is clearly rooted in the mistrust that the groups harbor towards each other, as well as the sentiment that other groups are mistreating them or are detrimental to their own future. For instance, 44% of Hispanics and 47% of Asians are “generally afraid of African Americans because they are responsible for most of the crime.
