Twitter Flooded With Racism And Hate After Obama Victory
In the wake of President Obama’s big win this week, the racists and ignoramuses came out in full force.
Jezebel took the liberty of rounding up a few of the most outrageous and pathetic highlights.
Enter at your own risk.
In case you were hopeful that Obama winning a second term was some kind of indication that racism doesn’t really exist anymore, check out Twitter. The amount of hate speech, referring to the president as a “nigger,” a “monkey,” calling for violence and for the south to “rise again” was depressing—and eye-opening. Here is incontrovertible proof (as if we needed it) that racism isn’t just some imaginary talking point invented by liberals, but an actual problem. What’s sadder is that many of these Tweeters seem to be in high school, who don’t have the flimsy excuse of being raised in “another time.” If you believe the children are our future, then our future is fucked.
