Missisippi is the state with the highest rate of obesity. The corollary is that it's also the state with the highest number of blacks per capita.

Another corollary: Mississippi ranks 49th in attainment of graduation from high school. A different way of looking at it. Uneducated people make uneducated choices.

That made sense then, not now.
