Hubby got a job opportunity in MONTANA.....I looked to see if it was a racist state. Not many black people there. Then I see this on Yahoo! Do u agree with this....most racists states and leasts racists states. What are your experiences where u live? Yes, I know there is racism everywhere :)

"The state with the highest racially charged search rate was West Virginia, where 41 percent of voters chose Keith Judd, a white man who is also a convicted felon currently in prison in Texas, over Obama just this May. Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina, Alabama, and New Jersey rounded out the top 10 most-racist areas, according to the search queries used.

Even if states that are considered fairly liberal, racism is prevalent enough in certain areas to put the entire state high up on the list. "Other areas with high percentages included western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio, upstate New York and southern Mississippi," Stephens-Davidowitz points out in his New York Times article.


The 10 states with the fewest racially charged searches were Utah, Hawaii, Colorado, New Mexico, Idaho, Washington DC, Minnesota, Oregon, Montana, and Wyoming."

IDK, I'm Upstate NY and well, no problems that I'm aware of.  Nothing out of the ordinary I should say because there's always a problem somewhere.

Well DC is 98% African Americans so that would answer that.

That list sounds about right. Mississippi & Louisiana are at the top. And here I wanted to move to VA. Smh!

My parents are both from West Virginia, and I say this with love.  Something ain't right with the water round there.  But it's wildly beautiful.

I don't know that I want to get comfortable with the idea of a racist state.  I've seen plenty of racists in the upper class county where I work (a suburb of dc).
