The socially conscious shopper, you know the type, they won't shop at Walmart or wear shoes made out of anything other than hemp.

hate across America
For almost a year now Monica Stephens, an assistant professor at Humboldt State, has been analyzing over 150,000 tweets for words of hate (homophobia, racism, etc.) and plotted them out on an interactive heat map of the US to see where the most hate is being spewed.
