    States with the Highest Percent Black or African American Population - All States Sorted from Highest to Lowest

    1
    Mississippi
    36.3%
    2
    Louisiana
    32.5%


    Oh wait. Maybe taxation isn't the reason these states are so poor.

    You must be talking about a different Louisiana than the one I know.

    Louisiana has the second highest poverty rate in the country.

    But it is poor because all that oil wealth is sucked out of the state. Very little of it goes to LA.

    Texas did it right.

    Louisiana has low taxes - so obviously our economy is fucking awesome.

    New York has the highest that's why everyone there is poor and no one wants to live there.

    New York has a pretty high poverty rate, too.

    6 out of the 7 states which have no state income tax have much lower poverty rates than New York.


    It is a mistake to make a conclusion from only two data points (taxes and poverty rate).

    Some just don’t appreciate the Third World ambiance that is the Pelican State.
