Racist Teens On Twitter Called Out by Jezebel

In case anyone thought racism was dead. Racist teens, for gawd's sake! Jezebel not only contacted their schools, the magazine published names and twitter addresses:

We contacted their school's administrators with the hope that, if their educators were made aware of their students' ignorance, perhaps they could teach them about racial sensitivity. Or they could let them know that while the First Amendment protects their freedom of speech, it doesn't protect them from the consequences that might result from expressing their opinions. (For example, an adult woman is currently being investigated by the Secret Service for calling President Obama a "nigger" and suggesting he be assassinated on her Facebook page.)
