The Most Racist Places in America, According to Google

Christopher Ingraham, Washington Post, April 28, 2015

Where do America’s most racist people live? “The rural Northeast and South,” suggests a new study just published in PLOS ONE.

The paper introduces a novel but makes-tons-of-sense-when-you-think-about-it method for measuring the incidence of racist attitudes: Google search data. The methodology comes from data scientist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz. He’s used it before to measure the effect of racist attitudes on Barack Obama’s electoral prospects.

“Google data, evidence suggests, are unlikely to suffer from major social censoring,” Stephens-Davidowitz wrote in a previous paper. “Google searchers are online and likely alone, both of which make it easier to express socially taboo thoughts. Individuals, indeed, note that they are unusually forthcoming with Google.” He also notes that the Google measure correlates strongly with other standard measures social science researchers have used to study racist attitudes.

For the PLOS ONE paper, researchers looked at searches containing the N-word. People search frequently for it, roughly as often as searches for  “migraine(s),” “economist,” “sweater,” “Daily Show,” and “Lakers.” (The authors attempted to control for variants of the N-word not necessarily intended as pejoratives, excluding the “a” version of the word that analysis revealed was often used “in different contexts compared to searches of the term ending in ‘-er’.”)

It’s also important to note that not all people searching for the N-word are motivated by racism, and that not all racists search for that word, either. But aggregated over several years and several million searches, the data give a pretty good approximation of where a particular type of racist attitude is the strongest.

Interestingly, on the map above the most concentrated cluster of racist searches happened not in the South, but rather along the spine of the Appalachians running from Georgia all the way up to New York and southern Vermont.

Other hotbeds of racist searches appear in areas of the Gulf Coast, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and a large portion of Ohio. But the searches get rarer the further West you go. West of Texas, no region falls into the “much more than average” category. This map follows the general contours of a map of racist Tweets made by researchers at Humboldt State University.

    This study obviously ignores anti-white racism. Hawaii is extremely anti-white; that is common knowledge to anyone who has ever spent time there.

    • Weisheit77

      Really? How so?

      • newscomments70

        Whites are commonly attacked by “youths” on the Hawaiian islands. There is even a school day called “kill haole day”. The islander youths give their white classmates and extra beating that day…including the girls. I have known several whites who were brutally beaten by mobs of Polynesians. They’re like blacks when they fight. It is always a gang beating up one white person. My cousin went to high school near HNL. He was brutally beaten up because he was dating a very attractive local girl. Islander-on-white rapes are often not prosecuted. There is racism in a more suttle way with employment. Whites are often not hired or promoted because of their skin color.

        • Hawaii should have never been made a state. It never had a white majority…

          • John Smith

            White business interests wanted it.

          • They wanted Cuba too but we ran it as a puppet state after the Spanish war rather than annexation and making it into a state.

          • Alexandra1973

            I think we should totally cut Puerto Rico off too.

          • Michigan Patriot

            Amen !

        • thomasdosborneii

          I have heard of this kind of thing quite a bit. My brother and his wife were harassed and barely escaped an attack while on their honeymoon in Honolulu. He’s a pretty big guy no rational individual would dare mess with, but with a group, it can be a different story. However, he managed to get out of it, but has no interest in ever going back to Hawaii. On the other hand, they found a tropic resort in Mexico that they loved and were treated well and have gone back to for many, many years.

          I met a guy who had lived in Kauai for two years, but moved back to California. I asked how he could stand to leave such a paradise, but he said that he tired of even little kids spitting in his face, “Get outta here, Haoli”. Little kids, you gotta be kidding me. That doesn’t bode well for the future.

          • newscomments70

            That sounds about right. I never ran into anything too bad, but I was lucky. Part of me wants to advise more whites to move there to crowd them out. Fight back. Tell your brother to be careful in Mexico. Although, there are some nice folks down there, it can be extremely dangerous, especially for whites. One of my drivers told me of a married couple he knew, who was attacked. They were in a limo, on the way to their hotel in Puerto Vallarta. A gang stopped them and gang-raped the woman.

          • thomasdosborneii

            Thank you, newscomments70, you are right. Our sister went on a Mexican Riviera cruise and it ended up that the ship cancelled their stops at two out of the three Mexican ports, citing that it was too dangerous to stop there.

          • LACountyRedneck

            Many parts in Mexico can be real bad, including cops. A friend and I were riding dirt bikes near the beach in Ensenada in 1982 on some sand dunes. I had stopped to take a break and a guy walked up to me and pulled a pistol out into my face. He told me he was a cop but he sure wasn’t dressed like one. He had me walk a couple hundred yards up to some shack and I thought I was dead.

            After he made a phone call 2 cops showed up in their cop car, took me and my bike down some dirt road, stopped and demanded $50. I gave it to them, they tore up my bike and let me go. I was left with $1.50 to get back to the states. Fortunately gassed up the truck the day before. I was lucky.

            No more Mexico.

          • thomasdosborneii

            LACountyRedneck, and that happened in the early 80s? I would imagine that it would be MUCH worse, now. It’s too bad, because I loved three months of vagabonding around Mexico in the late 80s (never had any trouble, I think, because I was obviously “poor”, nobody would be able to get anything off of me!), so much of it was very beautiful and the people were friendly and generous. From all the things I hear, I am too afraid to go back there, now.

        • JohnnyMangoes

          I hate to say it but… Pretty much how whites have treated minorities for the last five hundred years?

          • BlueSonicStreak

            No, you very well DON’T hate to say it. You’re quite pleased to say it. Don’t think we’re fooled.

            how whites have treated minorities for the last five hundred years

            Be specific, please.

            Ain’t nobody got time to discuss “the last five hundred years” without you being more specific than that. We’re all a little tired of dramatic, sweeping statements about Thar Great White Eval. Name something that you think makes whites a deserving target, or go troll elsewhere.

          • newscomments70

            You mean rape and mass murder? I don’t think so. That’s liberal propaganda and hate screed. There have always been wars, colonization and slavery. Whites don’t have a monopoly on that. And whites have always been a minority in the world. The small handful of whites who were involved in slavery were relatively humane to their slaves. Arab slave owners castrated their African slaves. Africans actually sold other Africans into slavery…and they still do. Hawaii was colonized by the Britain and the US. That was unfair, but the people of Hawaii enjoy full benefits of citizenship, opportunity, and social services. Russia had their eyes on Hawaii as well…imagine if they colonized the islands? Most of the violent people in Hawaii are actually from other parts of Polynesia.

      • Jason Lewis

        Hawaii is also the only state never to be a white majority.

        • Cheri Rodriguez

          That’s why in World War II, the Japs in Hawaii were never rounded up. It would have wrecked the Hawaiian economy (kind of like rounding up all the Italians in New York City).

          • panasian

            Why do you have to use a racial slur? Can’t you make your point without using one? Explain to me.

        • brazos

          texans may kill back.

        • JohnnyMangoes

          I understand where you guys are coming from… But wouldn’t you say that this is the chickens coming home to roost based on the lynchings and historic accuse by whites for so long?

          • newscomments70

            Blacks murder more whites in a few months than were ever “lynched” by whites. One third of the people lynched actually were white. Many of the people lynched were actually criminals. My great uncle was “lynched” for stealing a horse. Does that give me the right to rape and murder innocent people? Whites have given blacks and others several trillions of dollars in handouts, and we’re thanked with massive rape, murder, and arson.

          • Jason Lewis

            I call statue of limitations on the whole historical problems whites had on blacks. The KKK didnt do as much killing of blacks in 100 years as the Bloods and Crips have in any given 5 years period.

    • Susannah

      Of course they ignore anti-White racism. To the coalition of the nefarious, the deluded, and supremely tribal sundry minorities, the concept doesn’t even exist.

      This is an utterly ridiculous study, even for a Harvard-educated SJW.

      • Oil Can Harry

        Of course it’s an unscientific, flawed study.

        Rabbi Davidowitz tries to track the frequency of an anti-black slur but doesn’t even try to measure the huge amount of anti-white comments nonwhites spew ever day across the net.

        • Michigan Patriot

          The Rabbi should do an ” expose’ ” on apartheid Israel next; oops, never will happen.

      • BlueSonicStreak

        I actually wonder how you would track anti-white bigotry online.

        Following searches for “cracker” is obviously complicated, because that’s also a foodstuff. Unfortunately, I think it’s the most commonly used anti-white slur. “Whitey” might also work. “White devil” would work very well IF it were quite commonly used, but I think its usage falls way behind “cracker.”

        But why are people searching the n-word in the first place? Is it to try to find places like Chimpout? Would blacks do the same thing with anti-white search terms?

        • Germanic Depressive

          I think finding out where the highest concentrations of people talking about “white privilege” would be a good indication of where white racism is strongest.

          Of course, they’d never acknowledge that constitutes racism against whites, but we know it does.

    • Bossman

      Isn’t Hawaii heavily Asian? Aren’t all Asians supposed to be intelligent, peaceful and non-aggressive?

      • Oil Can Harry

        Although Hawaii has many Orientals the actual natives are Polynesian.

        • Cheri Rodriguez

          Lots of Asians in Southern California (as well as Chicanos and Mexicans). Hence the big orange area on the West Coast around L.A. It’s not just Whites who are sick of blacks.

      • newscomments70

        It’s heavily Polynesian. Hordes of Samoans and Polynesians were brought there to work on industrial farms. They are extremely racist, violent, and sexually violent. Real Hawaiians, a minority now, are somewhat more mellow. East Asians are often victims on “Kill Haole Day”.

      • The Worlds Scapegoat

        Didn’t they eat Captain Cook?

        • Hilis Hatki

          Yes, they did eat Captain Cooked!

        • John Smith

          No, but he did get killed there.

        • belajadevotchka2

          Wow. When I read your comment, a big box of sugary cereal with a bearded, mustachioed old cartoon fella popped into my head. It took me about 30 seconds to realize what I actually read! I really gotta get some sleep.

        • Yeah, I bet he regretted his last name, huh?

        • Michigan Patriot

          Was the Captain ” cooked ” first or sushi style ?

      • Ultimate187

        They’re mostly Polynesian, also known as Pacific Islanders. Look similar to Asians, but they’re not.

        • They’re mostly Chinese, Japanese and Filipino these days.

        • Bossman

          Polynesians are a type of Asian and maybe slightly different from the East Asian type.

          • Exuberant Auditor

            By “Asian”, we usually mean “East Asian”, and Polynesians just like Amerindians are easily distinguishible from “mainland Asians” as they lived separate from them for some time.

            Polynesia is in Oceania anyway, not Asia.

      • My wife’s great-grandfather was apparently off the scale in that non-aggressive reckoning.

    • Michigan Patriot

      Every black area is anti-White racist zone but no report on this fact because the ” left ” would call that racism. How ironic !

  • Andy

    Why is this tagged “Misbehaving White People”? Searching a rude word on Google may come of foul motives, but it doesn’t necessarily. And I would bet that a lot of the people doing the searches were not white.

    • Chip Carver

      Just more anti-white drivel from the usual suspects. Who cares what the media or Google claims anymore? They’re all the same team, unified against Whites.

      • Andy

        I was wondering why Amren tagged it that way, though.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      The average black person is at least 5-times as racist as the average white person, yet researchers like Ingraham obsess about white racism. People like Ingraham must do perpetuate this phobia because it confirms their narrative of the scary white man keeping everyone else down.

      • Five times? I was going to say a hundred and five times!

  • The St. Louis media market is dark red. Which means I should probably quit using Google for awhile.

    But the searches get rarer the further West you go. West of Texas, no region falls into the “much more than average” category.

    Because of the paucity of blacks. Patterson’s First Axiom.

    So some people are sitting at home by themselves, Googling a bunch of racist stuff. What does it matter? As it turns out, it matters quite a bit. The researchers on the PLOS ONE paper found that racist searches were correlated with higher mortality rates for blacks,even after controlling for a variety of racial and socio-economic variables. “Results from our study indicate that living in an area characterized by a one standard deviation greater proportion of racist Google searches is associated with an 8.2% increase in the all-cause mortality rate among Blacks,” the authors conclude. Now, of course, Google searches aren’t directly leading to the deaths of African Americans. But previous research has shown that the prevalence of racist attitudes cancontribute to poor health and economic outcomes among black residents.

    The red spots probably also show a significant percentage increase in the all-cause mortality rate among whites.

    • Really? So to get rid of my local blacks all I have to do is Google racist terms? Damn! Why didn’t you tell me that sooner? Okay, bye, guys….I have to start Googling……

    • John Smith

      Perhaps these areas are more racist because of the self-created high mortality rates among blacks there? Hard not to view them negatively when they’re all around you and on the nightly news each evening.

    • belajadevotchka2

      The usual suspects always, either purposefully or not, never seem to use or understand the terms “correlation” and “causation” correctly.

      MAYBE groups of blacks that live less healthy, more dangerous lives die sooner, and this behaviour leads to Whites feeling disgust towards them? Possibly?
      Ohhh of course not. Everyone knows all black ills are directly caused by White racism.

    • Bob Wallace

            Yes, the effect of the migrations of New Yorkers is a non-racial example of the dangers of trying to integrate different peoples with different cultures.

            My father is an expatriated New Yorker. He never quite fit into the South. But he liked it, he respected it, and he likes to think he belongs. His Italian genes ensured that I never fit in, either; I stuck out like a sore thumb around the many more peaceful and genteel students in my religious school.

            When New Yorkers flood a southern city, it loses its southern culture and cohesiveness. This effect is infinitely stronger with immigrants from other races, ideologies, and religions, especially if they do not speak English.

          • Susannah

            I live in the South and my ancestors have been in the region since the 17th century. My husband is 3rd generation Italian and his parents grew up in New York and Boston. This has resulted in some amusing situations. There haven’t been any huge problems, but what you say is absolutely correct.

    So Google gathers as much information as they can about users of their search engine and then turns over that information to some leftist group who in turn twists it to further their anti-White agenda. Fascinating and Google of course has close ties to the Obama administration.

      Unfortunately, the Pacific Northwest isn’t very racist because, ironically, there aren’t very many non-whites living there.

    Other hotbeds of racist searches appear in areas of the Gulf Coast, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and a large portion of Ohio.

      Good for you.

      Michigan’s UP is a great place, too. I went on vacation there before. It is more rural than anything you have seen, but the community and people are great. There is little genetic drift, which means there are many blondes.

      Even though there is not much wealth to go around, the very few stores and public facilities I went to were beautiful and clean. The people working at the stores were fairly happy-looking and very nice to strangers.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        White people act white everywhere they go… clean, safe, livable communities, modest but clean, everything you need. As they say, you can take the White man out of Europe, but you can’t take the Europe out of the White man.

        • listenupbub

          What about white trash?

          • Nonhumans

            I have one eye that works selectively. The lower wrungs on the white ladder are still our own, and tbh most of them tend to be economically challenged, lacking of effective life-strategies, or make poor decisions, otherwise. Most importantly, they are human, despite their lifestyles, and don’t inherently possess a lot of the traits that the nonhumans are deplored for.
            .
            When the collapse or secession occurs, even if they don’t align with anyone else, theyre used to being down and dirty, and so will be naturally effective at dealing with the nonhumans.

    How does ‘Google searches’ for the ‘N-word’ at all correlate necessarily to ‘racist opinion’?. Maybe it’s people searching for popular rap video’s.

    • John Smith

      Who knows how many of them are the N-word searching for or using it with their homies?

    • Exuberant Auditor

      Well, the one ending with -a is generally used by blacks in a friendly way, while the -er is the white one. I think it was controlled in the study.

    • Alexandra1973

      I search for all kinds of crazy stuff just for the fun of it. I’m sure Big Brother thinks I’m a complete nutcase.

      I find paraphilias odd yet interesting…who in the world gets off on someone getting squashed by a giant foot? LOL

  • LHathaway

    Is this map a composite of racism or demographics? Zinger!

  • nito_incog

    This will help me choose a place to move to. The redder, the better.

    • Kenner

      Not necessarily. A lot of ‘racist’ areas are where whites see black vibrancy close-up.

      • dukem1

        Sound advice.

      • CallahanAuto

        You get a thumbs up, from a guy in a town right next to Paterson, NJ.

      • John Smith

        Around here, they have to drive into the metro to work, which is why they endure the inconvenience otherwise of living out in the sticks, past the edge of suburbia.

    • Dave West

      The redder the blacker.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    CONGRATULATIONS TO THE APPALACHIA AREA AND THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES REGION FOR BEING THE MOST RACIST AREAS IN THE NATION.

    How “racist” is your area? Mine falls within the pink shaded area, more than average racist, hoping it will morph red very soon.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      Mine is dark blue. *sigh*

  • Northern American-Nationalist

    “The methodology comes from data scientist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz. He’s
    used it before to measure the effect of racist attitudes on Barack Obama’s electoral prospects.”

    …ugh…

    • evilsandmich

      I suppose that says it all, as well, there’s no baseline to know what this stupid average is supposed to be.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        Just make sure you do your part to keep your area in the redzone. Your reputation depends on it. Make copies of past issue of AR. Throw them out like confetti like you just heard the clock strike midnight on New Year’s Eve.

  • Roninf9

    Familiarity breeds contempt.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      If “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors”, Segregation makes for good race relations.

      • Deacon Blue

        Make my fence the electrified type with Konstantine wire on the top of it!

      • Sick of it

        An ocean in between would make for much better racial relations…

  • Hilis Hatki

    Thats a bunch of google.

  • Anglo

    My zone is red. No surprise there.

  • Donald

    Coincidentally, you can also use the map to interpret racial demographics.

    • Donald

      On reading comments I realize 82 people have made the same point. Excuse the redundancy.

  • De Doc

    These types of studies are usually junk – basically conclusions looking for data to fit them. PLOS ONE is not exactly a prestigious journal anyway.

  • John Smith

    Ohio made me proud this time, though not often.

  • belajadevotchka2

    Pittsburgh, born & raised!

    • John Smith

      Go Yinzers! Too bad so many vote Dem for some dumb reason.

      • belajadevotchka2

        Does it really even matter who you vote for anymore? It’s a 2 party system in name only. Really, though, our democrats, for example, Luke Ravenstahl, has done a great job in Pittsburgh and even conservatives love him. I think Pittsburgh democrats are more like the old school democrats and not the Marxist dictators we usually see. I live in Indianapolis right now-husband’s job wanted him here for a moment and if you would prefer Indianapolis’s republicans to Pittsburgh’s democrats, you can have them. Greg Ballard makes me want to vomit. He blanks more black blank than the kardashians.

        • John Smith

          Still, it’s usually Dems more for minority gimmes and gun control than the GOP, but I agree it’s getting harder to tell the two apart and you’ll find some of the former more conservative than the latter, and a number of the latter more liberal than the former.

          • belajadevotchka2

            The Pittsburgh dems are some of the most conservative people I’ve ever met. Pittsburgh is a very unique place. The people are so real and true to themselves and are quite outspoken. We have the random but very seldom black mass misbehaviour but that almost never happens as our police put the fear of god into our blacks. We don’t tip-toe around trying to be PC. it’s just a very unique place and our dems are okay people.

    Hawaii is in fact a racist state, the locals hate all non-locals. Then, across the USA,Hispanics hate everyone, especially Blacks, and Blacks ferociously hate Whites. Most Whites I know don’t hate Blacks, they just fear them.

    • Ultimate187

      Locals hating non-locals is not the same thing as being racist.

    • Cuddles

      Hawaii is rotten place full of anti -white Asian/Polynesian wankers.

      Best deal is to get rid if the place and put it on a no fly zone quarantine. Rudest insulting vermin I’ve ever encountered. Black Africans were extremely cordial in comparison.

  • John Smith

    I guess the folks in E. TN won’t be getting any more racist when they find out their children in a almost entirely white school district got served meat that was six years old. I’m sure the negro chilluns get only the best, however.

  • Speedy Steve

    Well well well. Just a cursory glance shows me that people who dislike Africans (the red regions) seem to be the same places which have frequent contact with Africans. On the other hand, Montana and Idaho are virtually non-racist.

  • MekongDelta69

    Hey Mr. Self-Righteous Map-Maker…

    Where’s the black ‘racist’ map?

    Ran out of red ink, didja?

  • Alexandra1973

    Cool, I’m in a really racist part of Ohio!

    I don’t see blacks helping the Amish with barn-raising. Must be racist.

  • slobotnavich

    It’s been my observation going back over fifty years that black/white relations are far better in the South than in the rest of the nation. Blacks and whites have been living together for many generations in the Deep South, mostly civilly and cordially. Whites who abused or were rude to blacks were regarded as crude and ignorant louts and were usually censored by other whites. In the North few whites even know any blacks and fear to go into black neighborhoods at all, all the while parading their “moral superiority” over their redneck fellow Americans.

  • curri

    The UP has a long reputation as one of the most left-wing places in the country. Of course that doesn’t mean they can’t be racist. Jack London was both a socialist and a racist.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    I guess we’ll have to come up with a grievance industry/parasite map.

    “The blue areas indicate people who hate America more than life itself…”

  • Light from the East

    There is a high correlation between the racist map and the black population distribution map. Wait! There is NO WAY blacks can be racist.

  • AmericanRemnant

    “Davidowitz” – Seriously? This has as much validity as Sigmund Fraud’s fanciful theories. Is that racist?

  • brazos

    I’ll bet a dollar to donut most of those racists are black.
