This morning, South Carolina removed a symbol of divisiveness and white supremacy from its state house grounds. Congratulations to the people who approved of and voted for this. And congratulations to organizations like NASCAR and others who joined with the people of South Carolina in recognizing that the stars and bars represented an evil, murderous era in America's history.
Interesting information from Wall St. 24/7 on the states with the most hate groups.
Eight out of the ten cited are in the south.
Top ten states with the most hate groups:
6. South Carolina
4. New Jersey
1. Mississippi (No. 1 state with the most hate groups).
"With a population of 3 million and 22 active hate groups, Mississippi has the highest concentration of hate groups in the country. Poorly educated populations are among the most likely to participate in hate groups.
Only 20.4% of adults in the state have a bachelor’s degree or higher, the second smallest share in the U.S. The Council Of Conservative Citizens, a white nationalist group, has chapters in four cities across the state, while the black separatist group Nation of Islam has chapters in three."
