In Dr. King’s day, Americans were more active and less round. A ranking of the most and least sedentary states.
Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Tennessee are the worst, but they are not alone. By the map, there’s not a whole lot of separation between any of the regions. Only four states and DC (where the denizens scurry about like rats?) rate below 20% inactivity.
Go march or something.
