Racist Tweets Abound after Obama Wins Second Term
For those of you who thought that President Barack Obama winning a second term would prove that racism is dead then you need to take a look at the Twitter posts embedded in this article before you think twice.
In the posts, made by people of all ages from across the country, the president was called a ‘nigger’ and a ‘monkey.’
The tweets were discovered and posted by Jezebel. The site believes that the majority of those posting tweets featuring racism against the president are actually still in high school, which does not bode well for our future as they are the leaders of tomorrow.
We have embedded some of the screenshots captured by Jezebel in this article for you to read. Let us know your thoughts in our comments section below about the tweets. We have chosen some of the tamer tweets to post in this article as some of them called for the south to ‘rise again’ and some also called for violence in response to the election results.
These tweets prove, without any doubt, that racism still exists not only in the world but in the country too. One user on Jezebel even did some research into the people who posted the tweets and found out where they go to school or where they are planning to attend college.
