Report: Most Racist Colleges in America

A new Twitter study has revealed the most racist, sexist and homophobic universities in America.

The study, Most Derogatory Colleges, analyzed 2.4 million tweets from American college campuses to find out where racism, misogyny, and homophobia still raged on at institutions of higher learning.

Southeast Missouri State University and SUNY Cortland students sent the most racial slurs, politically incorrect, sexist and anti-gay tweets overall.

Clemson and Yale rank third and fourth respectively for the most misogynistic tweets.

Below are other key findings from the study:

  • University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Lehman College and Fordham University are the top 3 schools with the most anti-black tweets.
  • The most anti-gay tweets can be found at Husson University in Maine, despite being less than three hours from Ogunquit, one of the most vibrant gay communities in the state.
  • Albertus Magnus College, Notre Dame de Namur University and Clemson University took the crown for most derogatory tweets towards women.

Twitter worked with researchers at CollegeStats.org to produce the study. They say the tweets describe the prejudices of students across America.
