Regina Leader-Post - - WORLD -

Fifty years after the as­sas­si­na­tion of Martin Luther King Jr., only 1 in 10 African Amer­i­cans think the United States has achieved all or most of the goals of the civil rights move­ment he led, ac­cord­ing to a new poll by the As­so­ci­ated PressNORC Cen­ter for Pub­lic Af­fairs Re­search.

Three-quar­ters of African Amer­i­cans said there has been lit­tle or no progress on fair treat­ment by po­lice, and more than half an­swered the same about fair cov­er­age by the me­dia, po­lit­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion or eco­nomic op­por­tu­ni­ties.
