Nearly all Hawaiians say their state is a good place for racial and ethnic minorities to live, edging out Texas and Alaska at the top of a list compiled by the Gallup polling group.

Their survey finds that almost nine in 10 residents of five more states — New Mexico, Washington, New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada — feel their social climates are good for minorities, above the average of 83 percent.

“No state performs terribly on this measure; in fact, solid majorities in all states think where they live is good for minorities,” Gallup said.

But West Virginia, at 74 percent, is at the bottom of the list. Missouri (76 percent), Vermont and Arkansas (both 77 percent) are also among those with below-average scores.
