It was reported that more Americans watched the women’s championship match last Sunday between USA and Japan than the NBA Finals or The Stanley Cup.

As the game progressed in favor of the US team, some people took to social media and shot off what can be perceived as racist and offensive tweets.

Just another sign that we have still have a long way to go. Click here to read some of these tweets.
