Studies have however indicated that there has been a tremendous improvement in the reduction of prejudice and discrimination in America. A research by the New York Times as indicated in the CATO policy report of 2003 indicate a chronological reduction in the responses of the number of people who believes that the race issue is still a problem that needs addressing.
The report showed that a by the turn of the millennium only seven percent of the studied persons believed that racism was still a problem. In 1992 29 percent of the black society indicated showed that the problem of racial discrimination had improved, and by the year 2000, 58 percent had conceded the same. This is a clear indication that the problem of prejudice and discrimination was really subsiding.
