Bad Chart Thursday: Map of Hate Speech against Conservative White Male Christians
Rebecca is off to the Women in Secularism 2 conference, so I’m covering Bad Chart Thursday this week. In today’s Quickies, Amanda included a link about a map showing hotspots in the United States for racist, homophobic, and ableist language in geotagged tweets, and commenters expressed valid concerns and questions about the methodology and data presentation. So I went to investigate further, finding more information in the FAQ about the map and the original post accompanying it.
Several people commenting on the latter post raised additional concerns, such as about the conspicuously absent data for hate speech against women as well as the even more shockingly glaring absence of data on hate speech against white, conservative, pro-gun, Christian men.
So of course I had to remedy the injustice. Below, I give you a map illustrating data on the hate speech oppressing conservative white male Christians in the United States, shown in hot pink. (I lumped it all together because those white guys all look the same anyway, amiright?)
