Update: Some of the Twitter accounts of those who directed the racist remarks now appear to have been suspended. The embeds below may appear as text only for this reason.

Following an appearance on CNN, during which he called out host Piers Morgan for race baiting, radio talk show host Larry Elder has been bombarded with racist remarks on Twitter from other black Americans.

Morgan admitted that he had booked Elder to appear because he had been critical of Morgan’s assertion that the key witness in the failed prosecution of George Zimmerman is a “smart cookie.”

While Morgan attempted to railroad Elder into calling Rachel Jeantel “stupid”, Elder instead focused on how he believes the media is engaging in outright race baiting over the Trayvon Martin case, stirring up division and promoting hatred.

Elder’s performance was lauded by many commentators as he slammed Morgan for treating “black people like children” and told him he should be “ashamed” of himself.

“I’m just bothered by how you are handling all this,” he said. “You think you are doing something for black people but you’re not. You’re making black people feel as if they are under siege and it’s not true, it’s an outrage!” Elder said.

Elder hit Morgan with cold hard facts, noting that there were 7,000 murders last year of black people, almost all of which were committed by other black people. Elder also highlighted the fact that there have been 480 black people murdered in Chicago alone this year, and 75 percent of the cases are yet to be solved.

“Where are the cameras, where are the shows?” Elder asked Morgan. “It’s outrageous to act as if black America should fear some non-black guy stalking some black kid at night. The likelihood of a black person being killed by a non-black person is extremely remote, which is why this became a big national issue in the first place.” he stated.

“Half of the murders in this country are committed by black people, even though black people are 12 percent of the population,” Elder urged. “This is why commonsensical people profile.”

“As if [the Zimmerman case] somehow is some sort of indictment of America and black people should look over their shoulders every night and act as if a white guy is going to jump out of a bush and get them. It’s outrageous,” he said. “Hard work wins. Get an education, don’t pay attention to negative people, stay focused and you’ll be OK in America. That’s why most of the people in the world want to come here, that’s why you want to come here, Piers.”

In response to Elder’s interview, he has received a torrent of racist abuse on social media sites from other black Americans. Below are numerous examples.

Warning: the following tweets directed at Elder contain extremely vulgar and racist language.

Elder attempted to respond with dignity:

Elder also explained that he went on the attack against Morgan for a good reason:
