Race Relations

Explore Gallup's research.

As the date approaches this year, just over a third of Americans report having a lot (12%) or some knowledge (25%) about the "Juneteenth" celebration.

Americans continue to be more focused on race-related concerns a year after George Floyd's death on May 25, 2020, than they were before it.

Mentions of COVID-19 as the most important problem in the U.S. have fallen to their lowest point since the start of the pandemic. The percentages naming immigration and race relations are up since last month.

Gallup's update on Americans' worry about a host of national problems finds big changes in concerns about hunger, homelessness and race relations.

Americans' belief that race relations is the top problem facing the country remains higher at the start of 2021 than it was before George Floyd's death and the subsequent protests that galvanized a racial justice movement.

Gallup finds that Black employees who report seeing leaders of their own race in their organization are more likely to say their "organization is fair to everyone."

About one in four Black (24%) and Hispanic employees (24%) in the U.S. report having been discriminated against at work in the past year.
