Hate crime maps reveal the most prejudiced places in America

At least 6,593 hate crimes occurred in 2012, according to hate crime data compiled by the University of Michigan.

The maps below reveal where different groups are most likely to be victims of hate crimes. Each county is colored based on its hate crime rate, the number of hate crimes per 100,000 residents in 2012. The worst offenders and their hate crime rates are called out in each map.

We’re looking at you Boise.

Percentage of the male population with androgenic hair.
Androgenic hair, colloquially body hair, is the terminal hair that develops on the human body during and after puberty. It is differentiated from the head hair and less visible vellus hair, which are much finer and lighter in color. The growth of androgenic hair is related to the level of androgens (male hormones) in the individual. Due to a normally higher level of androgen, men tend to have more androgenic hair than women.
