Students at Humboldt State University in Arcata, Calif., took data from 150,000 tweets, searching for only 10 hateful words, as part of a study called “Geography of Hate”. It’s essentially a map of the US with a search bar, that lets you search where the most hateful words are used the most. Check it out and see where the most racist, hateful communities are, or use this tool to avoid them when planning a trip.
