Social media provides a raw look at the American psyche, biases and prejudices included.

One website decided to take a look at just how biased and prejudiced parts of the country were and were not.

Abodo, an apartment hunting site, examined 12 million tweets made between June 2014 until December 2015. The website searched for homophobic, racist, sexist, transphobic, and other types of slurs, and was able to identify areas where those people lived.

Adobo then filtered the categories by gender, learning disabilities, location, and race.

Among the ten worst offenders of derogatory and prejudiced language in the United States were:

  • 1 – Louisana
  • 2 – Nevada
  • 3 – Texas
  • 4 – Maryland
  • 5 – Delaware
  • 6 – Ohio
  • 7 – California
  • 8 – Michigan
  • 9 – Georgia
  • 10 – Rhode Island

Among the ten least offenders of derogatory and prejudiced language in the United States were:

  • 1 – Wyoming
  • 2 – Montana
  • 3 – Vermont
  • 4 – South Dakota
  • 5 – Idaho
  • 6 – Arkansas
  • 7 – Minnesota
  • 8 – Maine
  • 9 – North Dakota
  • 10 – Wisconsin
