RE: And the worst state is, OH GOD DAMNIT!!!!!
Didn't the Klan start in Indiana/Kentucky areas anyway? It's pretty strongly tied there.

Another bigger factor may be because most of Indiana is still rural areas outside two city realms, and Indiana is a state that is 88% White. There's also a large Indiana mexican/Black/etc. Population realm closer to Chicago and the Michigan boarder.

So Indiana has mainly strongly unwaivered white population realms all the way down that state line further down while the southern states don't have that type of situation.

Keep in mind that these are 'official' groups.

Tennessee seems to be kkkicking ass on this front.

And tu quoque is not a cogent defense, either. Being "thought of" before Alabama is not a reference to fact, but rather perception. Just because a critic is from Alabama doesn't mean that the critique is vapid.

That was my point. You reject criticism from an Alabaman based on the reputation of the state as a whole? Color me impressed. No, really.

I am not defending it. Shoot, I have only lived here two years. That post to nurse came off the wrong way I think. I was actually more shocked.

RE: And the worst state is, OH GOD DAMNIT!!!!!
I don't know if this is still the case but the national headquarters for the klan used to be in Lincoln, Nebraska. So, pretty far from the deep south.

And, sticking with the OP, New Jersey once had a strong klan presence. That was a long time ago, before WWII, but there are photographs of them marching near the Shore.

Thanks. I am curious about the enrollment of these. It is more disturbing that this is even still around anywhere.

Well, one of my great heroes, Jon Stewart, says he is ashamed of his home state of New Jersey.

But still he throws it some love, sometimes:

"Sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel
Isn't the Promised Land,
It's just, just New Jersey."

Snookie is from New York, not New Jersey.
