More than 8 in 10 black Americans believe President Trump is a racist and say the president has made racism a bigger issue in the country, according to a new Washington Post–Ipsos poll published Friday.
The president's approval rating among black Americans was even worse, with 9 in 10 black Americans saying they disapprove of the job he has done as president so far.
The respondents' apprehension over current race relations in the country, however, extends beyond the White House.
While 65 percent of those surveyed said that they feel optimistic about their lives all or most of the time, 65 percent said they think it is a bad time to be black in America, while 77 percent said they believe it is a good time to be white in America.

yeah, this is one of the polls that your reaction is likely "well, duh". What Trump and his supporters, including his campaign, don't understand is it was like throwing cold water in the face of black Americans when he was elected. And since being elected he has only added insult to injury. To this day, he still has a white nationalist working in his WH - Stephen Miller. He's attacked African American's countries as "shit holes". He's attacked duly elected African American members of Congress. He's taken credit for gains in the African American community that were a result of the policies of Obama. And , to be perfectly frank about it, every time he talks about African American's he's exceedingly tone death and disrespectful. So yeah. This is the kind of poll that you're likely to see and say "well, duh".
