    Before we jump for joy too much about how crappy Mississippi is, we should ask if any of the "worst" is because they are so racists, and minorities suffer at such a high rate to make the whole state that bad.

    • No it is because they are bankrupt and never fund education. It ain't like the Whites in Biloxi are Rhodes Scholars...

            He's black.
            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

            • I know. I was shocked and my sarcasm wasn’t stated well.

              • Yeah the loss of smilies really hampers sarcasm on this board...

                        • The gun humpers were already deflecting on Twitter saying that symbols found on the shooter are "Ukranian Nazi emblems, so he must have been a Nazi Leftist!" (used by the Azov brigade). And conveniently ignoring that the sunrise symbol used is a COMMON white supremacist symbol popularized by the German Nazis, and used currently by many far-right white supremacist groups, including the troubled Azov group.

                            Yet another reason to avoid Twitter like the plague that it is.

                              Facebook is worse because it has every Ma and Pa Kettle racist hayseed talking about how "Democratic cities like Chicago show what happens when they get a foothold."

                              Twitter has lower lows with the Pepe fucksticks, but Facebook is the common cesspool of the vast Middle American moron population. The latter swings elections and does a thousand times more damage.

                                I guess I see it differently because I'm a passive Facebook user and 95% of my usage is just catching updates that friends and family post. I don't use it for news and I don't use it for politics, and I just roll my eyes at the conservatives in my feed who post their crap.

                                maybe it's just selection bias since the only time I see tweets are really from here or Fark, but while Facebook has the mass of yokels, Twitter's format of limiting people to single sentences lends itself more to the emotive clickbait designed to outrage the reader without ever needing to provide any context whatsoever.
