An enterprising Internet writer recently uncovered America’s most boring, poor and racist states by typing “Why is [state] so” into Google and letting the site’s autocomplete function spit out some answers for the remainder of the question.

Being an enterprising sports Internet writer, I decided to type in a sports phrase for each of our 50 states and see what Google’s autocomplete supplied. Lower case is the phrase I typed, CAPS was provided by Google. These are all actual answers.

I think you’ll find that Google is a bit of a hater.
