Britain - Whites perceive rise in racism

Here's a shocker.

WHITE people are more likely than ethnic minorities to believe that there has been an increase in racial prejudice over the past five years, according to a Home Office survey.

Half of white people, but only a third of ethnic minorities, feel that there is more racial prejudice, according to figures published yesterday from Early Findings from the 2005 Home Office Citizenship Survey. Overall, 48 per cent thought that racism had got worse, compared with 43 per cent in 2001. Black people are the least likely to feel that racism has increased. The survey found that 22 per cent held this view, against 20 per cent in 2003 and 25 per cent in 2001.

And they're right.
