Tech company Floating Sheep has calculated where the majority of racist Tweets are coming from, and immediately after the election the company searched for Tweets containing “monkey” or “nigger,” and “Obama” or “reelected” or “won,” and isolated the ones that were geotagged with a location.

Based on their findings, the most racist Tweets are originating from the Southern states, and that may not be surprising. What is most surprising is that most of the Tweets reposted here are from millennials, a group that is thought to carry the torch for Post-Race America.

Take a look at these ugly racist Tweets; a few of these Twitter users will soon find out that making death threats against the president is a felony.

Racist tweets surged after Pres. Obama won re-election.
