The 11 least racist states in America, unlike their counterparts we discussed in the list of the 11 most racist states ranked by hate crime, seem to show a good sign of progressive thinking and giving all other people who are not too busy labeling people by the color of their skin some hope. Hope, though, is needed for a lot of racial minorities in the US, due to the still present frightening levels of racial bias which a concerning number of US citizens display in one way or another.
The country’s racial bias goes back to its origins where racial hate crimes were first conducted against the native population to a genocidal extent which is a matter of serious debate and criticism to this date. Soon after, slavery followed in a manner which the world hadn’t seen since the ancient times and even though a lot of effort and lives went into its abolishing, the basis for an image that defined a whole race was created. This lasts to this date, where other events such as wars and terrorist attacks have sparked serious racial hate towards certain people. African Americans have long stopped being the strongly highlighted focus of racial bias and today we can see not only the everyday disregard to the social status and human rights of people of color but also a worrying number of hate crime. This does, however, not only happen between whites and other races but also between the non-white races as well.
Wyoming takes the eleventh place with a low enough rate of racial bias in its people. Racism is no longer the issue it was before in this state where people of different races coexist more and more peacefully every day.
