Unfortunately every state has pockets of racist bigotry. In some states its more against the african community while in others, Arizona, its against hispanics - i think thats my answer, Arizona. After all its their entire state government who have made it legal for their police force to commit big time racial profiling. They have the right to stop any person of hispanic heritage and demand ID just because they think they look 'suspicious'. Hmmm how many ways can THAT right be abused....?
State sponsored bigotry much like the Nazis did to the Jews in the early days of Hitlers reign. I call that the most biggoted.
Most guys think Georgia is the most racist state in the US. Racism in the United States has been a main issue since the colonial epoch and the slave period. Many people in the U.S. will continue to have some discrimination against other races.
I live in Iowa too. There definitely are racist individuals here. No doubt. But I'm older, I've travelled, lived other places and I promise you, Iowans on the whole are unbelievably colorblind compared to much of our country. Scary, isn't it? I'm white, I know how white people talk when they "think" no body will take offense. Sometimes it feels like we as a country are moving backward. Non whites and women are being marginalized again.
