*This either means that Arizonan’s aren’t as bigoted as other people, or that they aren’t into social media. Except when it comes to anti-Latino posts, where Arizona is in the top five, behind Texas and California. VL

Arizona has fewer racist, sexist and vulgar social media posts per capita than Texas, California and Nevada.
And Phoenix social media posters have cleaner language than the likes of New Orleans, Atlanta and cities in California.
That is according to an analysis of social media posts by a Wisconsin real estate firm.
Madison-based Abodo.com looked at millions of Twitter and other posts in 2014 and 2015 to see which cities and states had the most racist, sexist and vulgar tendencies.
Arizona — which is often typecast as anti-immigrant and intolerant — only shows up in one category, according to Adobo’s research.
Arizona comes in fourth for anti-Hispanic tweets.
But that’s behind per capita to California, Texas and Nevada.
