As you know this country is becoming more and more divided…..and the rise of hate groups is also a growing problem.
But which state has the highest number of haters?
That would be Montana.
The Southern Poverty Law Center releases data each year on hate groups across America. The 2020 figure was 838. One of the factors in the analysis is that hate groups are divided into groups that range from neo-Nazis to racist skinheads to anti-migrant groups. The study also shows where the groups are located based on years of observation.
The state with the most hate groups is Montana. Here are the details:
Hate groups in 2020: 5.55 per million people (six total)
Percentage of population identifying as white: 85.8 (fifth highest)
Percentage of population foreign-born: 2.3 (third lowest)
Median household income: $57,153 (11th lowest)
Largest hate group headquartered in the state: Last Chance Patriots
What is a hate group according to the study? The study included this definition:
My state, Mississippi, is number 16…..(I would have thought it would be higher on the list)……
For me this whole division thing is very disturbing…..I am an old fart so I fear that this country will not heal in my lifetime for that reason I fear for my granddaughter in the future.
Please any thoughts?
