Modern Racism Scale

Probably the most frequently used scale for racism, but IMHO long overdue for a replacement.

Adopted from this online version. Scale is from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 5 (Strongly Agree) :

  1. Over the past few years, Blacks have gotten more economically than they deserve.
  2. Over the past few years, the government and news media have shown more respect for Blacks than they deserve.
  3. It is easy to understand the anger of Black people in America.
  4. Discrimination against Blacks is no longer a problem in the United States.
  5. Blacks are getting too demanding in their push for equal rights.
  6. Blacks should not push themselves where they are not wanted.
