Anti-Obama Republicans Flood Twitter With Profane Racist Tweets

While Liberals were celebrating Obama's reelection victory on Tuesday, some anti-Obama Republicans were busy on Twitter, posting vile, racist tweets against the President.

 While the President was giving a passionate speech, the conversations on Twitter went into crude stereotypes, ignorance, and blatant racism. Bigotry reared its ugly head, and a moment of triumph turned into a moment of head-shaking.

It is quite sad to see something like this and thus it begs the question: When will racism stop in America? The tweets which were trending on the social network seemed to have originated from primary schools, secondary schools and university students.

It is quite a pity to see our young ones engulfed in this and that calls up the question again: When will racism end?

Warning: The tweets you're about to read below are ignorant, offensive, and (due to the fact that they're on a public forum) completely lack common sense
