    It's good to know where the re-assimilation efforts will be directed.

    Yep, and it looks to me like Moonie might have sent one of those :). Isn't he in San Fransisco?

    Would have been hilarious if there was just ONE blip over SF for that silly girl that got fired from ColdStone.

    Isn't that just a population density map? I kid...but there are quite a few dots in "progressive" areas.

    I think you need a geography of California lesson.

    Strange. The concentration of tweets in Mississippi seem to be around the Hattiesburg, Jackson, and Memphis area (Northwest Mississippi/Desoto County is basically a suburb of Memphis). Those aren't really the "redneck" areas of the state, though they are the more heavily populated areas.

    There's also a blip in Tupelo, though, which is in a part of that state that was historically considered "the hills" and not very kind to African-Americans.

    I guess it's simply because those areas of the state have a higher population. It's still completely inexcusable, of course.

    I do wonder what the map would look like if it were adjusted for population, though.

    Hey thanks. Looks like just a population density thing, which I suspected looking at the I-95 corridor.

    Every one of those dots is a racist conservative Republican. They have spread everywhere like cockroaches.

    ....No, I think I'm fine. Don't know why you'd say such a thing.

    If I'm reading this correctly, while the red dots are tweets, the shade of green is based on the tweets per population. Hence, 10 racist tweets in a state with a population of 10 million isn't as racist as 5 racist tweets in a state with a population of one million.

    Something else to consider - who uses Twitter. Just a guess, but I'd think that the frequency with which people use Twitter increases with the level of education.

    Ehh I'm wrong, She was actually from Turlock. Halfway between Fresno and SF. A bit closer to Fresno. But a world away in terms of culture.

    Just the name Turlock should tell you something, it sounds like a suburb/dungeon of Morodor in middle earth or some shit.

    Seeing as how blacks use the "N" word all the time I wonder how many of those were actually from African Americans?
