>In the crush of social media traffic following President Barack Obama's re-election, there were some incredibly racist comments floating out in cyberspace.
Most are unprintable in a family newspaper but suffice to say some used the N-word euphemism while other argued "it's called the White House for a reason."
And apparently Utah was a hot-bed for some of it.
A group of geography academics called Floating Sheep charted the location data embedded in tweets sent about Obama's win and ranked states on where the most racist comments flowed from.
Utah tied for fourth with North Dakota.
Alabama led out as having the most racist tweets of those sent out about Obama's victory, followed by Mississippi and Georgia.
