The liking of Czechs for Arabs and Jews living in the Czech Republic has declined in the past year -- while Slovaks remain the most popular and Romanies the least popular ethnicities -- according to a poll released today (March 9, 2015) by a leading Czech polling agency, the Prague Monitor website reports.
The new poll surveyed people's attitudes to 17 ethnic groups. Although their liking for Jews and Greeks has declined, the two ethnicities still remain among the five most popular with Czech inhabitants.
Greeks are liked by 37 percent of the population and disliked by 15 percent. Jews are liked by 31 percent and disliked by 17 percent. Slovaks -- the most liked foreign ethnicity -- are favored by 84 percent of people and only 2 percent dislike them, the poll showed.
Poles finished second, with being liked by over a half of the Czech population, and Greeks came third before Germans, Jews, Hungarians, and Bulgarians.
