    Wait, wait, wait....I cannot vote in this poll because there's no "racism is everywhere" option.

    I did that on purpose, unless you think racism is everywhere in exactly equal amounts.

    I can't really know since I haven't spent significant amounts of time in each section of the United States. I'm not sure anyone can answer this question.

    Re: What is the most racist portion of the US?

    Don't really think its possible to say which section is "most" racist. Every segment of the country has sections that are racist in one such manner or another and I don't think there's a particular area where its "the most". "The most" is rather subjective as well. For example, you could have a place where most people aren't racist but the ones that are are your full blown obvious racists where as another place could be where everyone has that slight tinge of constant racism going on but there's few of the big in your face types.

    I live in the Southeast, but grew up in the midwest and worked in the southwest. I've spent a considerable amount of time in the northeast, midwest, south, southwest, and california. I think that of all the places I've been, the northeast (philly, New Jersey, Pittsburgh) were the worst.

    I remember Howard Dean coming to my town and lecturing people here about gods, guns and race. Pretty ****ing easy to lecture other people about race when your state is 99.9% white. It's easy to get along when everyone is from the same culture.

    Re: What is the most racist portion of the US?

    I do not know if any area or region of the US is more racist than any other region, so unable to answer the posters question.
    Now if you had asked what do I believe is the most racist grouping, that I could answer.

    Re: What is the most racist portion of the US?

    I don't think anyone could answer this question and actually know the right answer. I'm willing to bet some would assume the south is most racist, though that is likely because of the racist past of the south... but that doesn't mean they are more racist now than any other place in the U.S.

    I'm not going to vote since I simply do not know and am not interested in stereotyping any one area. Racists are everywhere, and unless they are dressed like the KKK or in Nazi outfits, or are outspoken about their racism, it is very difficult to even know who really is a racist.

    Can't answer the poll.

    Unless I lived an equal amount of time in every area of the US, and a decent length of time as well, I would have no way of knowing.

    As I've mainly lived in only two states, and not traveled much even inside those states, there's no way I would know this.

    That being said, I would venture a guess that racism is, on average, fairly equal all over the country.

    It may be more noticeable in some areas, but less prevalent.
    In others it may be more prevalent, but less noticeable.

    Probably all evens out.

    If someone encounters a pocket of it, they may extend that to the whole area, or state.

    But such is likely not the case.

    Re: What is the most racist portion of the US?

    Of the regions I've spent a reasonable amount of time in, I'd say the Great Lakes region. I lived in Ohio for over two decades, and nowhere I've ever been anywhere in the Deep South can hold a candle to the kind of hardcore racism in rural Ohio.

    Racism certainly exists here in the DC area too, but it's a completely different kind of racism. It's the kind of racism you see in movies like Crash, whereas racism in Ohio is the more traditional, redneck kind.
