When NBC pre-empted Sunday Night Football to broadcast President Barack Obama’s heartfelt address to nation about the tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, racists quickly took to Twitter.

“Take that n****r off the tv, we wanna watch football!” one bigot tweeted.

“Obama you stupid sand n****r get off my tv,” another racist complained. “Your just making the families hurt and miss their kids more and I want to watch football.”

“Damn n*****r takes up my football time,” an idiot commented.

“This n****r interrupted football game,” added one more Obama hater.

I think you get the point.

There were dozens of similar ugly racial comments streaming through Twitter and over the Internet on Sunday from bigots who were totally unsympathetic to the families who lost 20 children and six adults when an insane gunman, Adam Lanza, opened fire inside an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut last week.

At a time when most Americans came together to support the residents of Newtown, there were racists who represented the darkest side of humanity. How can so many people be so callous in the wake of an unspeakable tragedy?

These racists didn’t vote for Obama in November and they never wanted to see a black man in the White House anyway. But Monday’s collective racial tirade took on a decidedly different tone than the usual run-of-the-mill racial hatred.

This was even more despicable because these racists would rather blame Obama for pre-empting a few minutes of the 49ers-Patriots game instead of standing with those families who were mourning their loved ones.

“Whatever measure of comfort we can provide, we will provide,” Obama told a solemn audience in Newtown Sunday night.

“Whatever portion of sadness we can share with you to ease this heavy load, we will gladly bear,” the president told them. “Newtown, you are not alone.”

“No single law, no set of laws, can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society,” Obama said. “But that can’t be an excuse for inaction. Surely we can do better than this.”

Hatred toward Obama is intensifying and Sunday’s racial outbursts are indicative of how racial attitudes toward the president are emerging at an alarming rate.

Since Obama took office in 2008, the number of hate groups has increased significantly across America. Hate organizations grew at a staggering 755 percent in the first three years of Obama’s tenure in the White House.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks white supremacist groups, there are currently 1,018 active hate groups in the United States. Hate group activities can include criminal acts, marches, rallies, speeches, meetings, leafleting or publishing, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Georgia, according to the Center, has the second-largest number of hate groups in country. California leads the nation with 84 hate groups.

“Really? can’t even watch sunday night football cuz our n****r prez has to talk, really?” tweeted one irate football fan.

Among the white supremacist groups that are on the rise in America include White Aryan Resistance, the United Klans of America, the White Patriot Party Militia and the Aryan Nations.

Many of these so-called “patriot” groups claim to be about God and country, but they coldheartedly – and conveniently – seem to overlook the concept of national solidarity while Obama occupies the White House.

  1. I just wanna state that these high tech cowards are just that… couldnt beat them with a crow bar and make them say or do in person or in the REAL world the crap they they boldly and proudly type out from behind the safety and protection of their keyboards or technical communication devices,.I bet over 90% of the aholes that couldnt wait to see the football game have never played organized sports or have a clue about any of the stats on the teams they cheering for..saddest of all,most of the racist today all under 30 yrs of age,.educate your children people,this is not a safe world,. never has been for us,.but even worst today,..

  2. A ‘new low’??? Seriously? Think about the history of racists, then you will realize…this is hardly even close to a new low considering the horrors our people!

    A lot of the disrespectful comments were made by young black men as well. This article is ridiculous. We already know there are racist who don’t like the POTUS so what!

  5. This is ridiculous to even be surprised by random people tweeting racist tweets.People do this all the time not just tweeter but on various blogs,youtube and even facebook.There is no way you can police ignorance in the world.That’s why as black people we should teach our kids and prepare them for things like this.I feel like these people do this cause it’s convenient for them.Plain and simple but it’s the ugly truth.

  6. They have no love or compassion in their hearts because they have no relationship with Christ. This is the only reason they can exhibit such hate. We must continue to pray for the protection of our president!

    sad. who cares what racist think. There are millions more who stood with the President in trying to comfort and pray for the family. Everything is NOT News Worthy so STOP trying to be the first to just give attention to people who doesn’t deserve it. MOVE ON ALEADY SMH at this article

  8. If they really wanted to watch the football game, they could have turned to other stations to continue watching. I wouldn’t even waste my time writing an article about this and idiots that have nothing better to say. We already know that people like this exists in the world, but lets not give them attention. The president doesn’t waste his time reading comments like this and we shouldn’t either. These people have no compassion in their hearts and no common sense either.

  9. Did black people do this kind of thing when George W was in office? I DON’T THINK SO!! We toughed it out. Racist white people need to do the same. Its pretty gutless to post this on twitter. They have no spine. If it were a republican president, they wouldn’t have complained about the football game. Racism is alive and well. The medium and ways its transmitted/promoted has changed, but the game remains the same. SOme of these racists are too stupid to realize this president will end up helping their racist azzes out in the long run!! Most of them are poor or middle class. How can you be poor or middle class and HATE THIS president??? Racism drives common sense out the window!!

  10. They may have been a force back in the day but now they are just sad and pathetic. Minorities have grown so much over the years and unlike back in the day WE WILL F YOU UP if you try any of that BS now. So let them spew all the loose bowel out their mouths that they need to because now that’s pretty much all they have. The “N” word meant nothing to us then and nothing to us now. Look at us!!!! We dominate in this world now baby!

  11. What is more important a football game or to see the President speak to the family who have lost their babies, and they say we are all the same do the racist people really hate the President that bad and if he didn’t say anything they would have something to say about that he is dame if he do dame if he don’t.
