Hate Groups in America

The Southern Poverty Law Center has broken down hate groups in America by each state. Follow the link to the site and then click on your state to see where and what hate groups live in each state. It's interesting and scary all at the same time.

I was fascinated to discover that rednecked hate groups, the ones you'd expect to only find in the south and southwest, are actually everywhere. I mean, look at New Jersey, there are 25 groups in the state where I live. I mean, sure, I can expect to find 40 in Georgia or 50 in Florida, but 25 in my home state or even 10 in Maryland? Fortunately there are a few states that don't have any hate groups; they are Vermont, Rhode Island, and Maine.
