One thing that I noticed that I find somewhat interesting is that most people have this sterotype of the South being mor racist than anywhere else when IN FACT according to these numbers it is the Mid-Atlantic states!!

There's not much of interest to learn from this list. It's practically a ranking of states by population density. We really need a list per capita.

Well then maybe they should apply that knowledge across the board, not just when it's convenient to forget, say like, when trying to make it sound like white folks are just a bunch of card-carrying members of hate groups...

Is their a hate group for hating people who play the race card at their convenience? If so, where do I sign?

There are all kind of hate groups. White, black, asian, hispanic... Some might try the reverse racism thing. One form of prejudice doesn't justify another. They are all unnecessary and counter productive.

If I were to do population instead it would tell many hate groups per whatever the population is but i wouln't get an idea of rather they are 90% out by the coast or the mountains or wherever.... I just feel I get a better idea with land area personally.
no, because you find more of EVERYTHING in more densley populated areas, but in certain states you find a much higher PERCENTAGE of hate groups, making it more likely for you to encounter them there. Distance should have nothing to do with it. Does anyone really think Massachusetts has more hate groups than Idaho?

I imagine this has been done, but I don't see it. So bearing in mind difficulties that might exist with SPLC this is an attempt to do it per-capita.

Hawaii - - 1 hate group per 1,366,862 people

Of course this doesn't tell us membership per-capita just organizations per-capita.

The Deep South does look high as do the Rocky Mountain states. Indeed Montana came up on top with Wyoming in the top five. Of states deemed "Southern" Kentucky, Texas, and Virginia came out alright. Of "Mid-Atlantic states" New Jersey still looks high as does Delaware. Many "red-states" were indeed high, all top-ten spots were "Red", but Alaska and North Dakota were in the lowest five. Kansas, Nebraska, and Utah were also okay in relative terms.

Christians hate gays and shoot abortion providers. There are a lot of them around the country.

Other than the Pacific Northwest and the Northeast, there is a lot of hate in this country.

Interesting to note that these states that scored low also have a relatively low population of minorities (read targets for the ire of hatemongers).

Alaska (69.3% White)
North Dakota (90.7% White)
Kansas (90.9% White)
Nebraska (93.06% White)
Utah (95.01% White)

However, that trend is not consistent in the top 5 states. The top 5 states break down like so:

Montana (95.52% White)
Mississippi (61.72% White)
Arkansas (75.6% White)
South Carolina (69.12% White)
Wyoming (96.01% White)

Perhaps while the southern hate groups are the thugs and/or KKK who march through towns provoking conflict while the Rocky Mountain hatemongers are the types to hide out in their cabins mailing racist screeds to other hate groups in places that actually have minorities?
