50 Tweets That Prove Racism Is Alive And Well In America (Warning: Extremely Disturbing, Racist Language)

If you have any doubts about racism still existing, just spend a few minutes scrolling through any social media site and you’ll see how strong it is in so many people. This isn’t an easy read by any means and, honestly, it was one of the worst things I’ve ever had to put together, but it’s necessary. Originally I was going to do 100 tweets, but wading through all that vile trash was so difficult I stopped at 50. These weren’t hard to find. These are rampant and directed at individuals. Use this as motivation to spread love and positivity in the midst of so much hate and ignorance.
