We would use a Chi-Square test of independence to test for an association between thinking of social issues and race.

The Null hypothesis is that there is no association between these two variables and we will reject the Null if the p-value is less than .05.  See the attached excel file for the calculations. We get a CHI-Square test statistic of 12.73 on 8 degrees of freedom (rows-1*cols-1=4*2) making a p-value of 0.121.

Since this p-value is above .05 we fail to reject the Null Hypothesis and conclude there is NOT an association. So in describing the relationship, we'd say there is no evidence that race affects how often people think of social issues.
