The results of the poll come decades after policy makers and social scientists worried that limited technological access in low income and minority communities could create a digital divide with wealthy and white communities.

Racial Diversity Grows: White Americans Run Risk of Becoming Racial Minority
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Young African-Americans are just as likely to follow online news as their white peers, according to a poll released on Friday disproving the belief that people of color are technologically divided from whites.

Some 64 percent of millennials read and watch news online, including 66 percent of African-Americans, 65 percent of whites and 53 percent of Hispanics, an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the American Press Institute poll revealed.

Additionally, 41 percent African-Americans are likely to use Facebook to monitor social media compared to 29 percent of whites and 24 percent Hispanics.

“The AP-NORC study found no evidence to suggest that African-Americans and Hispanics lag behind in terms of technology use with nearly all millennials across racial and ethnic groups using a smartphone, and half using a tablet,” the poll found.

The results of the poll come decades after policy makers and social scientists worried that limited technological access in low income and minority communities could create a digital "gap".
