Race and Recession: Poll Finds Those Hardest Hit Most Optimistic

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- A new poll suggests that Hispanics and African Americans hardest hit by the recession are the most optimistic about their futures.

The new Washington Post/Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard University poll found that African Americans are especially confident about their future finances compared to whites. Hispanics, although at a lesser level, are also more optimistic than whites following the economic downturn.

The survey found that although whites, on average, felt more secure with their finances than African Americans or Hispanics, their view of the nation's economic prospects was worse.

Twenty-three percent of whites said they were pessimistic about their futures, compared to 10 percent of African Americans.

Two-thirds of Hispanics said they believed they could get ahead with hard work, while just over half believed their financial situation would improve in the next year. A majority of African Americans, 62 percent, also believed their prospects would improve in the near future, compared to just 36 percent of whites.
