WASHINGTON - Roughly 75 percent of Black Americans worry that they or someone they love will be attacked by a white supremacist because of their race, The Black Wall Street Times reported Monday, citing a national Washington Post-Ipsos poll conducted in May.

Surveying 806 Black Americans across the country on May 18-20, the poll also found that 70 percent of Black people believe that half, most or nearly all White Americans hold white supremacist beliefs. A whopping 97 percent of Blacks surveyed see white supremacy as a threat, said the report.

Restrictions on voting rights, the criminal justice system, police brutality and gun violence all ranked high as threats to Black people, but racism topped the list, according to the poll.

Moreover, a Washington Post-Ipsos poll conducted from April 21 - May 2 found that 43 percent of White respondents believe the United States has done enough to make Blacks equal to Whites in society, compared to only 9 percent of Black respondents who share that view, said the report.
