'White People Mourning Romney' is Hilariously Controversial

'White People Mourning Romney' emerged post-election to celebrate some spectacular reactions to the re-election of American President Barack Obama. Though the election was almost a week ago at this point, the immediate and long-term reaction to the re-election of the Democratic incumbent has been ongoing.

Winning 50% of the popular vote, Obama took the Presidency early in the night by achieving the necessary 270 electoral college votes and eliminating Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The hilarious Tumblr plays on a theme that is sometimes associated with the Republican party: white, married Christians. With an emphasis on the white part of the association, the Tumblr features white Americans reacting the news of Romney's loss and Obama's subsequent re-election.

The priceless reactions range from devastation to pure, unadulterated outrage.
