White and Asian people in the UK face racial discrimination more frequently in their daily lives, according to a new study.

According to a report by The Metro, the British think tank British Future conducted research on public attitudes towards race, identity, and prejudice. During the research, opinions were taken from 2,500 people, out of whom at least 100 belonged to the linguistic minority.
The poll was conducted by Focal Data in March and April.

Although 80% of people from linguistic minority groups said the UK was a better place to live than the US, Germany, and France, they face racial discrimination on a daily basis in the UK.

When British respondents were asked if Britain was a better country for minorities to live in than other Western countries, 73 percent said yes. Only 27 percent of respondents said Britain was no better.
When asked if it is easier to live in the UK if you are white, 48% of white Britons said yes, while 60% of people from linguistic minority groups said yes.

More than 50 percent of those polled said Britain’s political and media culture is too divisive.
When asked about Britain’s progress on racial issues over the past 25 years, 68 percent of those from linguistic minorities, compared to 71 percent of whites, said the country had made significant changes.

However, 64% of white British voters and 80% of those from minority groups said Britain needed to make more progress on racial issues over the next 25 years.
