More than half? Yeaaah riiight you lying piece of shit. This huckster got this number out of his ass, one hundred percent. He gets all his polling results from his ass. He is falsely enlarging the threat of racism, putting a magnifying glass on isolated incidents, denigrating critics because of their political affiliations, and this is a very negative, wrong, bad, and irresponsible thing to do in society. No one in their right mind should take seriously what he or the SPLC has to say.
The other contributor to CNN actually made a strong, intelligent, honest, and accurate point, saying:
"What we see is a world in which anti-racists have a lot of voice, they have a lot of influence, so whenever says something like that, that is so appalling, what happens is that it gets an enormous amount of push back. And I think that's a very good thing. But another thing is that we have organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center that really have grown enormously in recent years. For example, in 1995, the SPLC had net assets of about $52 million. In 2011 they had net assets of over $250 million. And this is not a period of time during which racism increased by a factor of five, rather, they've been able to grow by drawing on incidents of this kind and then weaving them into a story about racism growing. Racism is real, it needs to be combated, but we also need to be weary of people who profit from the perception that racism is something that it's not, which is to say, a growing phenomenon." - Reihan Salam, [3:28 - 4:16].More Than Half Of WHITE Americans Have These Anti Black Attitudes."
