Pew Research: Only 1-in-6 Protesters Are Black, 46 Percent Are White
Only about one-in-six protesters over the last
month are black Americans, while the plurality are white, according to
Pew Research Center analysis.
Though recent protests and riots have been centered around racial
tensions with law enforcement, only 17 percent of protesters have been
black, while 46 percent are white, 22 percent are Hispanic, and eight
percent are Asian, the analysis shows.
