Racism in Utah after Obama Victory

Salt Lake Trib Report: “Utah Fourth Highest for Racist Tweets after Obama Victory” 

Some things never change and apparently the hallmark LDS revelation of 1978 didn’t do much for some who reside in Utah.

An article in the Salt Lake Trib today about racist tweets after Obama’s victory caught my attention and reminded me that as a nation on the whole we’re doing better, but there’s still work to do about loving thy neighbor as thyself.  There are some people in this world who apparently missed the memo.

 

The Trib reported that a geo-coding company who tracks info on a variety of social matters released info they collected on which state showed the greatest number of racist tweets from November 1st to November 8th.

Utah and North Dakota tied for fourth place. Read more on the methods employed here
