'Geography of Hate' maps racism and homophobia on Twitter... I lol'd @ this one....
a group of students and professors at research site Floating Sheep have built a comprehensive map of some of Twitter's most distasteful content: the racist, homophobic, or ableist slurs that can proliferate online. Called Geography of Hate, the interactive map charts ten relatively common slurs across the continental US, either by general category or individually. Looking at the whole country, you'll often see a mass of red or what the map's creators call a "blue smog of hate."

Man, sure reeks of propaganda to me...

Looks like some bullshit to me. I'd be curious to know what words they were looking for.

Gay men are fucking disgusting, i don't care who you are. Inserting your penis into a rectum is the most backwards thing i can think of (this goes for supposed "straight" guys who are into anal)

Lesbos are annoying and usually COMPLETELY INCAPABLE OF HONEST SELF ASSESSMENT. If they have any faults at all, it's because society as forced the faults upon them.

I have no qualms with the disabled or aged. In fact, it is righteous to look after them.

I hope these professors and especially the students don't put too much stock in the results of this inherently flawed project.Because the source of the data is the low information voters.It sure shows the problems with our educational system and exemplifies the problems we are confronted with and further explains why our country and especially its youth are in a downward spiral right down the toilet!
