Racial and Ethnic Minorities Receive Poorer Care Than Whites
A new poll by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation released today finds a majority of Americans (68 percent) are unaware of the disparities in health care problem. The lack of awareness is greatest among whites, with only a quarter (25 percent) believing health care is worse for racial and ethnic minorities. In comparison, almost half (44 percent) of African Americans and more than half of Hispanic Americans (56 percent) said racial and ethnic minorities received worse care than whites.
