Findings from a Harvard University survey showed that nearly half of young people between ages 18-29 believe that the United States’ criminal justice system is unfair, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported on April 29.
Despite this belief, most millennials did not think that rioting would help the situation, in reference to recent demonstrations in certain cities after instances of police violence against African Americans.
The survey, taken between March 18 and April 1, revealed that faith in the justice system also varied based on ethnicity. Although there were high numbers across the board, there were also disparities in numbers between different ethnicities. For instance, 43% of white people believed the justice system was unfair, compared to 53% of the Hispanic population and 66% of young African Americans.
