A Black South Carolina lawmaker recently said that Hispanics work much harder than Blacks in this country. The statement, which came from State Senator Robert Ford sparked a firestorm on the ‘net.

Many of the comments in one of our discussion pieces disagreed with Ford’s statement, while many said they agreed because Hispanics have no other option but to go back to their home where there aren’t any opportunities.

We conducted a BlackPlanet/NewsOne poll and the results were as follow:

Poll Question: A Black lawmaker recently said Blacks don’t work as hard as Hispanics. Do you agree with that statement?

* Yes 26%
* No 47%
* Somewhat 27%


Do you think Hispanics work harder than Blacks?
