America's shifting views on racial discrimination

A growing number of Americans — 41%— believe "racial discrimination is the main reason black people can't get ahead" in society, per a Pew Research Center report published Thursday. This is up from 32% in 1994.

Yes, but: There is still a greater share of Americans who believe "black people who can't get ahead in this country are mostly responsible for their own condition," though the percentage has trended downward in the last few years.
