Pew Research: Majority BLM protesters are white Democrats

Large-scale race protests and rallies have captured public attention around the world and amplified calls for police reforms. They are driven by young white Americans with college degrees.

Black Americans account for only 17 percent of those who say they attended a protest focused on race or racial equality in the last month, while 46 percent of those who said they attended a BLM protest are white.

Eighty-eight percent of white Democrats said that police treated black Americans less fairly than white Americans, according to a Pew Research Center poll conducted last year. That is similar to the number of black Americans (84 percent) and black Democrats (86 percent) who expressed this view.

Almost 80 percent of those who say they participated in a BLM protest recently identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party, while just 17 percent said they were Republican.

Similarly, 86 percent of white Democrats said they thought the overall criminal justice system is unfair to black people, similar to the share of black Americans (87 percent) and black Democrats (90 percent) who believe this.

Of the 6 percent of American adults who said they attended a protest or rally in the last month according to the recent Pew Research Center survey, most of the actual marchers were likely to be white, live in an urban area and vote for, or support the Democratic Party, particularly focused on issues related to race or “racial equality”.

Recent Hispanic American BLM marchers accounted for 22 percent, slightly more than their ethnic representation, similar to black attendees.

Eighty-four percent of white Democrats and 78 percent of black Americans said they thought the killings of black Americans by police officers was part of a broader problem and not just a series of isolated incidents, according to a 2019 YouGov survey.

According to a Gallup poll, the number of white Democrats who support reparations for black Americans has increased from 11 percent in 2002 to 33 percent in 2019.

White Americans increasingly agree with the notions that “black people have gotten less than they deserve” and “slavery and discrimination still hold black people back today,” according research by Sean McElwee of the leftist pollster Data for Progress.

  2. Well DUHH all's you have to do is watch a protest for a few minutes and you will say alot of white females screaming the loudest. if you watch the video of the state representative being attacked white recording the protest. he was attacked by 2 white female protesters. That why I say when this heats up target the white libtards first. The rest will cut and run. Remember what happened in Virginia 6,000 unarmed protesters and 16,000 ARMED protesters showed up to protest.

  3. I remain amazed at whites who will not go up to a black and ask them a simple question; "who do you fear the most to attack or kill you" and wait for their answer. = "other blacks". By a very great multiply factor.

  4. Don’t care what color the retards are. More than ready to uncork on all of them.

  5. It would be really interesting to see what percentage of looters are Black.
