    I saw that a while ago. They considered that someone who says 'homo' is an homophobic.

    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    Why does it say "racist tweets" in the bottom left, but racist, homophobic, and disability on top? Is this tracking all three, or just racism?

    All three. It says racist tweets because the person clicked to see where in America had the most "racist" tweets.

    It's an absurd map, since it seems entirely correlated with population density.

    To produce the map all tweets containing each 'hate word' were aggregated to the county level and normalized by the total twitter traffic in each county. Counties were reduced to their centroids and assigned a weight derived from this normalization process. This was used to generate a heat map that demonstrates the variability in the frequency of hateful tweets relative to all tweets over space. Where there is a larger proportion of negative tweets referencing a particular 'hate word' the region appears red on the map, where the proportion is moderate, the word was used less (although still more than the national average) and appears a pale blue on the map. Areas without shading indicate places that have a lower proportion of negative tweets relative to the national average.
    Yep, small towns are more likely to be in the red because 1/200 is more serious than 1k/400k, if we are going by population density.

    I've been looking at as many bigger named cities or relatively big cities, and found most, if not all, were light teal or no shade at all.

    This includes: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Milwaukee, Raleigh, Orlando, Nashville, yada yada.

    Jersey seems pretty hateful.

    For some reason, I'm thinking of Carl from Aqua Teen Hunger force right now, even though that's more of a North Jersey stereotype.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
