The 11 most racist states ranked by hate crime apparently still live a couple of centuries ago as far as progressive thought and open-mindedness are concerned. Of course, their entire population is not one hundred percent ready to grab their pitchforks and torches at the sight of a slightly darker colored person but statistics show that the majority of them could be very well at least thinking through this scenario.
Racial hate crime has been a big issue in the USA (and also for the 10 most racist countries in the world) probably ever since a different race than the white people was introduced to their lands. From the worldwide known history of black people’s enslavement to the horrific treatment of Mexicans and other Latinos who tried to gain entry to the country in its early days, the US has been known to have quite a problem regarding the peaceful coexisting with people of different race. Using Chinese immigrants as a cheap, disposable workforce during the construction of what grew to be what we know today certainly did not help their case either.
The infamous Ku-Klux Klan and the white supremacy movement are one more major manifestation of the racial bias the land of the free has. Through lynching, burning, beating and other practices which would now cause a civil war but were then turned a blind eye on, morally broken people have been causing problems for peaceful residents of different race for centuries. Let’s take a look at where that is most likely to happen.
The twenty-ninth largest state in the US takes the eleventh place on the list. As of recent years, over thirty percent of the state’s population is represented by minorities. People in Arkansas are known to be racist to all non-whites, not just black people.
