Jemele Hill, a young black sports enthusiast and ESPN personality has been guest hosting Colin Cowherd’s show, “The Herd.” Not everyone is happy about Jemele being on the show. A very disgruntled fan broke out his pen and paper (pre-technology style) and told her why he’s mad.
Check out the tweet here:
In the handwritten letter, the “fan” said:
“Get her outa here before she back-slides into some ebonics -laden inarticulate mumbo jumbo tirade.”
“Short sound bites from male (black) jocks is tolerable. But, I’m not interested in spending all day listening to some thick-lipped gorilla, attempting to properly speak the king’s English.”
Well, racism is here to stay, even when it has no real rhyme or reason to rear its ugly head. According to Gawker, ESPN receives at least a letter a day for Hill and they are usually racist.
