Using this logic Utah has to be a very racist state as well as they came in 2nd.

Again, HUH? Mormons have a known history of being very racist in the past. here, educate yourself if you would like.

I just state things as I know them to be. If you cannot take the fact a lot of racist people also happen to claim to be very religions, not sure what to tell you, but that does not make it any less the truth.

Are you serious? Bigotry and religion are two sides of the same coin.


Only a bigot would say something as ridiculous as this

A statement that proves bigotry among the non-religious is alive, well and as ugly as the other way around.

I never would have though Mississippi would be number 1. With all of the racial hatred that went on there.


You'd be surprised if you ever went to visit. I've got plenty of family there and most of them are nothing like that. The blacks and white seem to get along better than in a lot of places I've visited.

Utah IS a very racist state.

Not sure about their, but my time In Alabama lead me to believe racism never died in the south, it just became a vicious circle of hatred between both sides.

Does it really matter which is the most religious state? Since preist says the US got the worse Christian.

You educate yourself. Utah is not 100% Mormon. You state things the way YOU think them to be. You are not all knowing! I never said they were not racist.

l find it interesting that the most religious support the GOP while the least religious supports the Democrats, counting states as a whole.

Straw man, he never said 100% of the state was Mormon But it is the single largest Mormon Enclave with over 60% being Mormon and with clustering counted their are whole parts of the state where 90% of the town is Mormon.

In my ten years on Neowin, I have never seen a response that was only two sentences and stringed to straw mans into itself as well. I neither told you that you said they where not racist, nor called you a name.

Then take a look at the post directly above yours. You called me straw man. I guess that term is used more so in England.

all the top positions are the ones most prevalent in slavery trade :)


Most of those states where in the Confederacy. Not a single slave ship ever fly a Confederate flag. Just something to think about…
