10,000 racist tweets are sent ever day, a major new study into racism on social networks has discovered.

Research by the think tank Demos found the biggest insult was 'white boy'.

Researchers analysed 126,975 English-language tweets from across the globe over a 9-day period in the biggest ever study of Twitter racism.
The Demos researchers claim 10,000 racist slurs are tweeted every day - but says many of them are used in a non-derogatory way

Researchers revealed the most common racial slurs used on the micro-blogging site included ‘whitey’ and ‘pikey’.

One of every thirteen tweets are racist.

I'd rather be a white boy than a you-know-what.

How many afro-americans does it take to change a light bulb?
287. 1 to change the bulb, five to a side for the basketball game, and the rest raping white women, eating chitterlings, siring innumerable unfathered children, and defrauding the welfare system.
