Only three quarters of Czech people averse to Romani - the best results since 2006
@ romea.cz (sorry, it's in Czech but I'm nice so I'll translate~)
Out of all the ethnic minorities in the Czech Republic, people have the worst attitude towards Romani. Almost three-quarters of people surveyed reported them as dislikeable. These are the results of the latest survey from the Centre for Public Opinion Research (CVVM), the results of which are available here. In contrast to recent years, the public attitude towards the Romani population has improved slightly. Czech people themselves came top of the list, with Slovaks a close second being considered likeable by nine out of ten people.
The survey compared fifteen ethnic groups living in the country, including the native Czechs who served as a group to compare the others by. Respondents expressed their feelings using a seven-point scale, with the extremes being (1) very likeable and (7) very unlikeable.
74% of respondents labelled Romani as unlikeable, whilst 12% considered them friendly. Compared to the survey of 2009, that is a marked positive shift in favour of Romani.
Ukrainians are amongst the less popular nationalities, with 51% of survey participants expressing dislike for them. Albanians and Romanians both were considered unlikable by 44% of participants.
The most popular minority are the Slovaks, with 92% of respondents marking them as favourite. Poles received 78% positive results, Greek people received 63%, and Jewish people received 60% positive feed-back.
Public opinion of Germans, Russians, Albanians, Romanians, Serbs, Ukrainians and the Vietnamese has improved compared to previous years' surveys. A small positive shift was also recorded towards Hungarians.
Antipathy towards Romani was expressed in particular by those who did not graduate from school, and respondents over sixty showed a dislike for Germans. University graduates felt more sympathy for Ukrainians.
The survey -- which took place from the 7th to the 14th of March -- questioned 1306 people aged 15 and above.
This made me so happy, haha. Not just from a selfish point of view (only 74% of my motherland kinda want me dead, WHOOOO), but the other groups - the immigrants who get hated on so so much and are always being told they're worthless drains on society and should ~go back home - are getting improved results too, which is absolutely amazing :3
Gives me hope that one day EVERYTHING WILL GET SORTED OUT (!!!!!!!) and we'll all live happily ever after ♥
