Is New York a state full of hateful people? Well, the numbers have been crunched, and the results are most definitely something. recently did a study tallying the number of hate groups in the United States, by state. Meaning, which states have the most hate groups compared to those who have the least? According to the study, the term "hate group" means:

...includes groups which have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people. Their activities can include criminal acts, rallies, speeches, meetings, leafleting or publishing."

According to their research, New York State came in at 6th place with a total of 53 hate groups mentioned. California was first place with 103 hate groups, Florida second place with 89, and Pennsylvania was tied at third with Texas with 72 groups. Vermont only reported 3, so came in last place, or honestly first place, based off how you want to interrupt the data.
