The majority of Americans are not in favor of the Black community getting cash reparations, according to the results of a new poll.
The research, which was conducted by Gallup and released Monday, surveyed a random sample of 2,543 Americans via phone interviews taken from June 19 to July 12 of this year. Among the U.S. residents who took the poll, 67 percent say they are opposed to the government issuing cash to Americans who are descendants of enslaved Africans. Still, the majority of Black Americans are in favor of such a payout making up the bulk of the 29 percent of people who say cash reparations should be doled out.
