Top Ten Most Embarrassing States in the United StatesYou ever hear stereotypes on how the US is always terrible? These stereotypes are often because of what people in certain notable states end up doing. And because of these people, outsiders and others tend to generalize who we are based off of those people.
The Top Ten
Another douchey move is the way you hyperbole "misuse of pronouns is apparently a felony". That ONLY applies to employees of long term health care facilities. So basically it's protecting the sick and the elders from abuse. Did you even look into it or are just parroting some right wing source? But anyways, you wouldn't care about the sick and the old from a "liberal" state like California right? Yeah and also nice timing with this list. - THC13
California is so far left that it practically deserves to secede from the US entirely. Their recent laws make it so that spreading HIV is a MISDEMEANOR while misuse of pronouns is apparently a felony. And all that Hollywood and overpopulation crap gets center stage when people mention the US very often. - NuMetalManiak
I wouldn't mind waking up to hear that Cali got bombed. Disgusting place.
I think people seem to be missing the point, he never mentioned anything about the wildfires and isn't trying to come off as douchey. He's just trying to state why he thinks this state is embarrassing, and apparently that's too much to do a opinion site? Jesus Christ... I'm going to need a lot of bleach and water to get through some of these comments...
You've probably seen a meme called "Florida Man Strikes Again", which I believe first was introduced because of that one guy in Miami who acted like a zombie and was eating another guy. There's a lot of things that happen in Florida, bad weather, very bad people (many of whom are rednecks), as well as the nightclub shooting and recent high school shooting still fresh in the minds of many people. - NuMetalManiak
The most interesting state for news, there is always something crazy going on there - germshep24
@ NuMetalManiak The Stereotypes American gets are general because of government policy not any individual State, the biggest stereotype is we are a gun loving country that wants any reason to kill people and this is because the Government is really lax on gun control and the gun nuts in America are extremely ignorant, vocal, and prone to spout NRA propaganda - germshep24
What's wrong with Texas?! I've lived a pretty peaceful life here!
Nothing but racist white people (not that all whites are racists, of course)
Goodness gracious, it elected the Zodiac Killer for crying out loud!
Everything's bigger in Texas, especially the embarrassment. There's even more Southerner-style people here than in Florida, although surprisingly there's not a whole lot of bad things in comparison to Florida or California. Still, the rudeness isn't as justifiable at times. - NuMetalManiak
Well this is probably a big surprise to some of you. Oregon apparently is a hipster capital, and these guys are always crying about things the government does. In a way it's more embarrassing than it really is. - NuMetalManiak
Born and raised in Oregon. Lived here for over 50 years, but can’t wait to get out of here. The state itself is beautiful, but the state representatives and people are disgusting. Portland has turned into one big homeless camp where all business doorways smell like urine and have bums sleeping in them every night. They spend all of their road repair money on green paint for the roads they turn into bike lanes. Last time I checked, Ike’s don’t pay a road use tax. I am embarrassed to tell people I’m from Oregon
Alabama is very often seen as the most racist state, though having been there I can definitely say things have calmed down quite a bit. Still, it's got its history, it's the birthplace of the Confederacy, it's where lots of Civil Rights moments happen, and of course it still has it's Southern population. - NuMetalManiak
Alabama tends to be looked at as a hick state, which I'm sure there are some countries like that but there are also countries that aren't, just like there are some areas of Alabama that are really racist, but most are just trying to live their lives - germshep24
SWEET HOME ALABAMA - DarkBoi-X
When you see a hot girl in class but realize that you’re homeschooled - yaygiants16
Worst state. Poorest state in terms of GDP Per Capita and I heard it's pretty racist. Even has the Confederate battle flag as a part of it's state flag. - DarkBoi-X
Honestly the only thing that Mississippi has going for it is it's extravagant name. That's it. That's basically embarrassing in itself. There's nothing of importance in Mississippi at all, it's largest city Jackson doesn't even have anything going for it, and of course it's a Southern state. More importantly, it is the fattest state in the US. - NuMetalManiak
I would still love to visit Mississippi one day and judge for myself. I imagine it's a lovely, welcoming place, full of equally lovely people. - Britgirl
I think you should visit all the states you could really leave in any state, there are usually just small areas of the state you have to avoid.
So just do your research but if your a white heterosexual you should be fine any place the only issue will be if you could stand the weather there - germshep24
Too many Mayflies
Ugly pine trees everywhere. - jazzbea
Alaska has a the smallest population but a giant crime rate drunk hill billies
Alaska is a classic example of an embarrassing state that you can even read about its embarrassment in a US history book. Ever heard of Seward's Folly? That was Alaska. It's huge but mostly barren, it's got a rather bad crime rate, and what else? - NuMetalManiak
The number 1 by far, this and Florida - germshep24
Gerard Way comes from there.
Highest auto insurance rates in the nation for a reason. Olde infrastructure, generally poor city planning throughout. Newark is 2nd only to Detroit in 'hell on earth status.' If New York is Bad, Northern New Jersey is the dregs of all that crap. They're a bunch of dicks because they are considered last place in all the places you can be in the Tri-state area. Stupid-high taxes for what you get. Dumb gun laws that encourage high crime rates. "Give the guns to the bad guys, they're probably disadvantaged yutes." Lots of eye-talians.
Why NJ? It’s so peaceful and calm! 😱
And in second place for fattest state (briefly it outclassed Mississippi) is West Virginia. Again, there's almost nothing amazing about this state, and it's only remembered because it seceded FROM Virginia. - NuMetalManiak
Denver really needs to clean up their streets and take care of all those homeless people. Shame on you CO - jazzbea
Arizona's honestly a nasty state. It's got a crime rate, incredibly hot temperatures over the summer, and people only pay attention to it just because it has the Grand Canyon and nothing else. Liberals obviously hate John McCain too. - NuMetalManiak
What's actually embarrassing about New York is that no one talks about anything New York related without referring to just New York City. The entire rest of the state is almost never really mentioned. And surprisingly, the vast majority of the state is also Republican! Yeah, but the Democrats usually still win since New York City, the overpopulated mess that it is, has significantly more people voting in it. Crazy how that goes. And of course, both presidential candidates were from New York itself. - NuMetalManiak
Once a great Southern state. Now it's an embarrassment of a Southern state. Wait, Maryland is not even Southern anymore. Blah
Ohio will be eliminated. - PirahnaPlant
The worst hospitality I have ever encountered. Wait, there is no hospitality! - jazzbea
