According to the study, 53 percent of respondents said that life for blacks in the future will be better than it is now, while 10 percent said it will be worse. Two years ago, 44 percent said things would be better in the future, while 21 percent said they would be worse.

Fifty-four percent of blacks said that the presidents 2008 election improved race relations in the U.S., while 7 percent said it made things worse. Forty-five percent of whites said the election made no difference for race relations, 32 percent said it made things better and 15 percent said it made relations worse.

Blacks also appear more optimistic than whites that their financial futures are going to improve in 2010. In December 2009, 78 percent of blacks said their finances will be better this year, while just 46 percent of whites said the same.
