The 2020 Australian Reconciliation Barometer shows more of the public are in favor of enshrining an Indigenous voice in the constitution, however it has found an increase in racial prejudice.

The biannual report by Reconciliation Australia shows that around 81 per cent of the public believe it is important to protect an Indigenous body within the constitution which is up from 77 per cent in 2018.

The survey also found an increase in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experiencing at least one form of racial prejudice from 43 per cent to 52 per cent.

It was also found that 60 per cent of Indigenous respondents and 43 percent of the general public believe that Australia is a racist country.

That is up from 2018 figures of 51 and 43 per cent respectively.

Reconciliation Australia CEO Karen Mundine says those figures could be due to racism being more recognisable today.

The report also found that 89% of the general community and 93% of our mob support the call for a formal truth telling process.
