Americans' view of black-white relations has reached a record low, according to the latest poll by Gallup.

In 2013, 70 percent of Americans said that black-white relations were either "very good" or "somewhat good." That number has dropped to 47 percent, in the poll of 2,000 Americans from June 15-July 10.

Americans' view of black-white relations over the last 15 years has generally been very positive, according to previous Gallup polls, varying from 63 percent to 72 percent.

In this most recent poll, whites have a lower view of the state of racial relations than blacks. Forty-five percent of white Americans polled said that they think relations are good, while 51 percent of blacks said that relations are good.

This drop in the view Americans have on black-white relations comes after a year of protests in Ferguson, Missouri, Baltimore and in other cities after black citizens were killed by white police officers or while in police custody.
