'White Men In Their 20s' The Most Hated Group In Britain

New YouGov poll measures the nation's prejudices - and it's bad news for men

A new YouGov poll has revealed the most hated group of people in Britain: young white men.

A set of 48 surveys on age, race and gender were conducted with the aim of uncovering the population’s prejudices and perceptions towards each other.

White men in the 20s scored worst for ‘politeness’, ‘promiscuity’ and – perhaps least surprisingly – ‘drunkenness’, while tying with young black Caribbean men for ‘propensity for drug-usage’ and coming second worst for ‘inclination towards hard work’ (behind Muslim women in their 60s) andsecond worst in  ‘likelihood to help others’ (behind Pakistani men in their 20s).

The top five most praised demographics were, in order: white women in their 60s, white men in their 60s, Chinese women in their 40s, Chinese woman in their 60s and Jewish women in their 40s. 

After white men in their 20s, Black Caribbean men in their 20s, white woman in their 30s, white Australian men in their 20s and Pakistani men in their 20s were the most detested.
