I moved from Riverside, CA to Beaumont, TX . I haven't been a victim of any hate groups but the Black racism towards white and Latinos is rediculous here. When I try to explain that making assumptions predicated on race is the same foolishness that they faught against 40 years ago. The light-dark issue is still prevalent amoung blacks here. If we blacks can't stop fighting over the crumbs-we're going to miss the meal. I think more people make a bigger issue of race than is needed. If we want equal authority we need to have equal accountability and responsibility.

I grew up in Alb, NM where I had friends of every race. Moved to FL as a teen and was shocked by the fact that everyone in my neighborhood was black. Which usually meant all your friends were black too and you only hung out with black kids in school In NM I was lucky if there was another black student in my grade let alone my class.

blacks(african americans) and latinos(mexicans) has been in some rivalry for some time in various oarts of texas, and immigration issues play a part as well. A hilary supporter said obama has the problem simply cause he's black and for the future it does not look good for black americans cause our own goverment are looking out for the interest of latino immigrants cause it equals votes

I was pulled over and the cop looked at my drivers license I asked him why I was being pulled over and he came right out and said "because your on the wrong side of time" And the people...they were so mean!

Texas, on the entire was a different story, especially Austin. I was told that the real racist Texans were on the border of Lousiana and in the pan handle.

I would have to say that the least racist states I have been to were Wisconsin, Iowa and Vermont. It just feels different there. My current home of Jersey is not the most racist place, but still, there is a difference between those states and Jersey. I have heard, however, from multiple blacks that Washington state, especially the east, is the least racist place in America...and I have also heard and seen that blacks in South Carolina and Georgia tend to be on this "I hate whitey!" black racism kick that makes me sick.

What say you?

We'll all find out in November.

Why is League of the South on there?

I'm not a member nor plan to be but it says on their website they encourage everyone to join. Apparently, some high up person made racist comments at some point but didn't represent the whole association.

Everybody's pointing the finger at Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi but South Carolina has 45 hate groups but most are LoS so that may or may not count.

California.

Where else can you get away with publically saying things like "California is going to be a Mexican state, we are going to control all the institutions. If people don't like it they should leave."

Isn't that a threat to our sovereignty?

I don't believe there is such a thing as a most or least racsist state. Every state has racsist people and no one state really stands out here. Regarding hate groups, there are hate groups among every race, not just whites, a fact that gets lost in the liberal media!

Keep in mind that the fact that there are hate groups in an area does not speak about the area as a whole. There are, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, neo-nazis in Newark New Jersey...granted, they must keep a looooowwwwww profile, for obvious reasons, but still, they are there.

Remember when they busted those neo-nazis in Isreal? Does that mean Isreal is anti-semetic?
