1. Do you understand the need for multiracial integration?
Many of the surveyees stated that they had a considerable understanding of the need for multiracial integration; 64% to be exact. This shows that people understand the importance of multiracial integration.
2. How many friends of different races do you have?
Majority of the surveyees (90%) have at least 1 friend from a different race. This shows that racial integration is already happening in our modern era. However, there is still a few people who do not have any friends of a different race. This may be due to the fact that they live in single race countries; therefore they would feel uncomfortable talking with people of different races.
3. How well do you communicate with people of different races outside of work/school?
A lot of the survey-takers could communicate with people of different races quite well outside. This shows that most of the people are not affected by race when it comes to inter-racial communication.
4. How many times a year do you celebrate a different race's festival?
An astonishing number of surveyees (66%) celebrate another race’s festivals. We were very surprised to see the response to this question, as we never knew so many people took time off their own schedule to celebrate other race’s festivals. This is a very good sign as it shows that many people do not think of another race as another “group”. Instead, they might feel that regardless of race, they are still one community.
5. Had you made an effort to integrate with friends/neighbors of a different race?
Although most of the survey-takers had made an effort to strike a conversation with other people of different races, there is still a staggering amount of people (18%) who had done otherwise. This may be because they are shy to make friends with people of other races.
6. Did you ever learn a language from another race?
In this ever changing world that we are living in, there are obviously many people (46% of the surveyees) who are learning or have learn a language from another race. This is quite a surprising number for an international audience, showing that the standard of racial integration in the world is relatively good.
7. Do you feel that early racial education is necessary in preventing racial disputes later in life?
Many people (50%) feel that racial education is extremely important in preventing racial disputes in the future. This may be because many countries exercise the importance of racial education, and seeing the numerous problems that arose in the past due to the lack of racial tolerance and respect, such as segregation and discrimination, many feel that racial education is in fact very important.
8. How important do you think racial integration is in our society?
Nearly half of the survey-takers (42%) believe that racial integration is extremely important in our society. For the other people who think otherwise, they may feel that racial integration is not as important as they may not have ever lived with people of different races and feel that they are doing fine by themselves. We feel that such a mindset has to be changed and is one of the weaker points of an international audience.
9. Do you feel that society can be greatly improved if the dividing lines between different races are eliminated?
A decent number of the survey-takers (38%) feel that if the dividing lines between different races are eliminated, then society would be greatly improved. This further shows the importance of racial integration.
10. Do you feel that you can make a difference in contributing to a multiracial society, and if so, to what extent?
Many of the survey-takers thought that they only could contribute to a multiracial society to a small extent. People have to know that racial integration needs everyone’s contribution, whether big or small, in order to inch closer to the racial integration dream.
Overall, on a global scale, people believe that racial integration is important in our modern day society. Problem is, they do not know how to help reach this goal. Racial integration is not one person’s dream, it is all of ours.
