While Texas saw a decline in the number of groups, it remained an extremist hot spot, with 57 hate groups listed on an interactive map, the third highest number in the country in 2013. California ranked first with 77, followed by Florida at 58.Texas has an even higher number of anti-government, or Patriot, groups, with 67 listed in 2013. That’s down from 79 in 2012, a 15 percent decrease.The two types of groups are divided geographically to some extent, with hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan clustered in the eastern half of the state, Potok said.”Like other southern states, it’s part of the legacy of slavery, segregation and Jim Crow,” he said. “I don’t think it’s any secret to say that East Texas has had and continues to have serious problems with anti-black racism.”But the problem is not unique to East Texas, he said.”Hate groups are distributed all around the country,” Potok said. “It’s not merely a phenomenon of the deep South.”The 2013 report, which covered 2012 data, listed 62 hate groups in Texas.Among the 57 Texas hate groups listed in the most recent report, eight were in the Houston area:
