Prager University has released a new video answering the question, "Is America racist?"

In the five and a half minute video, narrator Larry Elder addresses the question of whether racism is still a major problem in America. He states, after all, "President Barack Obama certainly thinks so."

Elder relies on statistics in order to dispute the notion that America is a racist country.

Elders cites a recent Gallup poll that states in 1958, only four percent of Americans approved of "black/white" marriages. In 2016, however, that percentage is at an all-time high of 87 percent.

The video finishes with Elder quoting Harvard University sociologist Orlando Patterson. Patterson said, “America is now the least racist white majority society in the world.”
