O is the most common blood type, but this is mostly O+
O- on the other hand is one of the rarest blood types.
Is is said that it is possible and even likely that all O- people have a common ancestry (similar to how all blue-eyed people have a common ancestry).
Additionally, O- is the only blood type which can give blood to everyone, and also the only blood type which cannot receive blood from any other person except other O- people.

Spoiler
There have been many conspiracy theories about the O- blood type ranging from reptilian heritage to genetically modified people, to even extra-terrestrial lineage. Don't worry, this thread is not about any of that.

Research shows that the highest percentage of O- people in the world are the Basque people of southern France and northern Spain (primarily south-western France).

Personally I am at least part french heritage, and I have O- blood type.

I was wondering what locations in the United States have the highest percentage of O- people, not including O+? There are a number of charts easily able to find on the web for all O-types, but is it hard to find any charts that refer to only the O- blood type.

If you have Rh Negative Blood and would be willing to donate to a person in need or would like the comfort of knowing where to find a matching donor when you are in need, please join the Registry.

** NOTE: Recent Blood research indicates that where, at one time, a person with type O negative Blood was considered to be a 'universal donor,' this may no longer be correct, because of a better understanding of the complex issues of immune reactions related to incompatible donor Blood cells.
