Marchers on Constitution Avenue (Doranne Jacobson)

As part of our series on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and the future of the civil rights movement, The Takeaway partnered with YouGov to conduct a survey that highlights American attitudes toward civil rights. 

The total sample size for this survey was 1,120 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between August 21 – 22, 2013, and the figures have been weighted and are representative of all adults aged 18-plus. The WNYC Data News team created this infographic. For full coverage of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, click here.

I think its divisive but mostly because it is not evenly applied. Its used like a sledge hammer on behalf of one group at the expense of another.
