A new Pew Research study released Monday shows that black and white America have profoundly different views on race and inequality. The study, which involved 3,769 adults (1,799 whites, 1,004 blacks and 654 Hispanics) and was conducted between Feb. 29 through May 8, says that the results show how black and white America are worlds apart, and when it comes to achieving equality, black respondents see it as an elusive goal.Here are six takeaways that highlight some of the important points from the study:
