Yeah, polls can be troubling. If you're looking for the sort of evidence that supports conviction of a crime, that probably isn't available. If you're looking for the type of information that supports decisions in every day life, it's there. Start with what we know - there is a crowd out there that holds these beliefs. Add in the fact that it would violate common sense to conclude that absolutely nobody with these views could ever find their way into the military. That would be ridiculous on its face. I can tell you that I have acquaintances with professional, academy-educated career officers. They confirm that it's an issue and it needs to be rooted out. You may not have experienced any incidents of white racism. That's fine but others have.Polls are troubling as evidence as phrasing of questions usually determines outcomes. The only racism I witnessed in 7 years of Naval service was directed at whites and blacks by Phillipinos.
