The research group took advantage of the tweets’ geo-codes, which is data showing where they originated from in the U.S. The team searched Twitter for racism-revealing terms and phrases that appeared in the context of tweets mentioning “Obama,” “re-elected,” or “won.”
They then sorted the tweets according to the state they were sent from, and compared the racist tweets to the total number of geocoded tweets coming from that state during the same time period, Nov. 1 to Nov. 7.
To normalize states across population levels, the team then used a location quotient-inspired measure or LQ score — an economic derivation used to analyze norms across geographical locations — to compare a state’s racist tweets to the national average of racist tweets.
So, per the team’s model, an LQ score of 1.0 indicates that the state’s proportion of racist tweets to non-racist tweets is the same as the overall national proportion. A score above 1.0 indicates that the proportion of racist tweets to non-racist tweets is higher than the national proportion. The results are seen in the map above.
The LQ score was added to the number of Ku Klux Klan organizations known to operate in the state, according to a list compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a watchdog organization that monitors hate groups. The states with the highest combined scores were considered the most racist states in the country. The process was not scientific nor can it be claimed that it gives the most accurate ranking of racism by state.
However, it offers some insight into where some of the most racist people in the United States reside.

Today’s REVIVE show topic is entitled:
One Aim One Objective One Opportunity
I came up with this topic because when I was Jamaica everyone, I mean everyone I meet wants nothing but an opportunity. Whether it’s to make money, start there own business, buy a house, buy land, go to school, or simply just get off the island and see what else the world has to offer.
Today’s Guest on REVIVE will help facilitate today’s conversation so we can get all type of perspectives on this topic One Aim One Objective One Opportunity #WeLoveOurCommunity! The guest that we have on REVIVE tonight I fell will bring truth to today’s topic. We will hear from a few different people all born and raised in different parts of Jamaica.
They will open our minds up and allow us to enter their everyday lives for a second. Give us a little bit about themselves and what they do. They will also give insight as to what is really going on in Jamaica that we don’t get to hear or see. I hope with the knowledge everyone receives from this topic you will take it in and share it. Its important that we share knowledge always, so it will be passed down to the next generation. I know through the power of communication we can get that done!!
