African Americans, whites deeply divided on justice issues

The ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that 86 percent of African Americans disapprove of the verdict acquitting George Zimmerman of criminal charges in Martin's death.

Only 31 percent of whites disapprove of the verdict.

More broadly, the same percentage of African Americans says that blacks and other minorities do not receive equal treatment in the criminal justice system.

Only 41 percent of whites share that view.
