I teach English to adults in a town of 25,000 in the Czech Republic. Most of my students have university degrees in computer science or engineering, work for a large local industrial plant, and are eager to learn.
About a year ago, we fell talking about minorities. Out of curiosity, I asked each student to estimate the percentage of blacks in the US population. To my amazement, the answers came at between 30% and 50%.
Repeating the same experiment with two different groups (altogether about 20 people), the same thing happened. The best answer ever was 20%, the worst 60%, with an average of at least 35%. And all were clueless as to the ongoing Hispanic invasion of the US.
Asking people at random produces even worse results.
In my opinion, the U.S. entertainment media's ceaseless presentation of blacks in disproportionate numbers, as lawyers, doctors, high government officials and detectives chasing white violent criminals, as seen on Czech television, of course all of it dubbed, eventually skews even intelligent minds. I believe the same process is underway in the rest of Europe and, in a somewhat different way, in the U.S. as well.
The influence of all pervasive sustained propaganda ought not to be underestimated - as many in this country who have experienced 40 years of communism can testify.
