New study finds nearly half of young Americans believe US is racist and not ‘greatest’ country
The first annual FLAG/YouGov State of American Patriotism report found some amazing details regarding the state of American patriotism, especially among Millennials and Gen Z.
The polls findings found that younger Americans, those under 38 years old, are “becoming unmoored from the institutions, knowledge, and spirit traditionally associated with American patriotism.”
The Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness sponsored the survey and emphasized some of the key findings like 46% of respondents don’t agree with the statement that America is the greatest country in the world, 50% believe the county is sexist, and 49% believe it is racist. Furthermore, 47% of respondents think America should turn to socialism in the future rather than continue with capitalism.Furthermore the study found that 84% of Americans don’t know the specific rights enumerated in the First Amendment.
The First Amendment reads,
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
