Almost half of Americans — 49 percent — say racism is a “big problem” in society today, according to a poll conducted by CNN and the Kaiser Family Foundation.

That’s a greater percentage than in 2011 — 28 percent — or in 1995, when 41 percent said racism was a “big problem.”

About two-thirds of blacks (66 percent) and Hispanics (64 percent) said racism is a big problem, compared to 43 percent of whites.

In 1995, less than half of Hispanics said racism was a big problem. Among blacks, the share went from 68 percent in 1995 to 50 percent in 2011, and back up to 66 percent now.
