Racist Superbowl Tweets

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know the Superbowl is today!  And in traditional fashion came all the racist Tweets from angry white men!

Most popped up when the queen herself, Beyonce, and her much anticipated performance came on for the half-time show.

Read more after the jump.

Many of these tweets are a result of white men feeling threatened by more representation of black artists and women.  This may be the first time they have not seen themselves represented anywhere, a common experience of people of color that's completely foreign to white males.  They deem this a threat to their power and privilege within American society, evidenced by the "#outnumbered".  To people of color though, it is merely more equality and representation.

Funny how Beyonce can scare the living shit out of some white guys.

Plain and simple, they fear the success of people of color.
