    Map Tracks Racist Tweets on Election Day





    I thought this was rather interesting. What do you think?
    Sorry--but I do not accept the idea that being intolerant of intolerance is THE SAME THING as being intolerant of anything else.

    I've been to Maine.

    It's pretty white and pretty rednecky, I'm stunned that there aren't any pings there.

    There's tools available, basically search.

    I question what was called racist. Many liberals consider any criticism of Obama racist.

    From Map Tracks Racist Tweets on Election Day, I see "take back America" was considered racist (chortle). Moreover, it's pointed out that a grand sum total of 395 such tweets is hardly representative of a nation of 300 million.

    Wow! Floating Sheep analyzed 400 tweets to come up with this map. What do I think? I think the racists in America are working overtime to keep race a critical issue. I would be interested to see the list of "racist terms" Floating Sheep used so I could judge just how biased they were.

    Did they track the 'Kill Romney's' like this? I'd like to see that.

    'Cutbacks' is racist.

    http://weaselzippers.us/2012/11/11/l...d-to-cutbacks/

    Papa John's CEO is called racist for warning that Obamacare related costs may lead to cutbacks.
