by WIZ E. WHIG, Ph.D. on December 6, 2013 in Cartoons, Cultura

masterhapemapThe infographic map-heads at FloatingSheep.org analyzed geo-tagged Tweets from one week in November last year to generate a hate map of the U.S.

Surprise, surprise — the Old Confederacy had the most haters when slurs about Latinos (Tweets using the word “wetback” and “spick”), African-Americans (“nigger”), Asians (“chink,” “gook”) were tallied (pan-racist map, above.) [Click maps to enlarge.]

Here’s the breakdown of “wetback” Tweets:

And here are the “spicks” Tweets:

Don’t forget to check out the homophobic and disablity-hating Tweets, too at FloatingSheep.org.
