Map of the Most Racist Places in America

Poverty In America
Correlation is not causality, but I wonder whether there is a circular causality here. Perhaps racism causes under  investment in human resources -- education, health -- and lack of economic opportunity for the races that face prejudice, leading to poverty. Perhaps poverty leads to more racism as the poor seek scapegoats for their own poverty.
