ESPN Analyst Gets Nasty Racist Letter and Posts it On Twitter

Jemele Hill from ESPN has been vocal about some of the racism she faces while doing her job.  The respected commentator got a nasty letter, likely one of many, and decided to post it on twitter.  This got the internet buzzing, since it gave the public insights into what black commentators sometimes deal with on a daily basis.

But Hill likely understands that when you speak in front of millions of people, this sort of thing is going to happen.  Hill joked that the man who sent the letter had “a hat trick of racial slurs.”

This is the second time in weeks that an ESPN analyst has been mired in racial controversy.  Another personality, Rob Parker,was booted from the network for asking if Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was a “real brother” or a “cornball brother.”  We’re not sure how ESPN is going to respond to this racial controversy, but we doubt they are going to react in the same way as they did in Parker’s situation.

  1. Its apparent that nothing has changed in America. Three hundred years and a black president means nothing it is still the man against the boy.

  2. Why do we as black people still give white people the time of day when it comes to this BS. Why do we even respond. If you respond white people will keep doing it. Just keep it moving and do your job!

  3. The writer of that letter is ignorant, small-minded and appalling. Just to name a few epithets I can think of.

  4. The Fear Of A Black Planet Continues…

    Racism will never die. I like Jemele Hills reports on sports. She keeps it real. The only racist people out here are the ones that right notes and hide behind computers and what not. Keep up the good work Jemele.

  6. Real tough if you see him in Person He would run like a scared Dog tired of these Internet Cowards hiding behind a Computer you Homo-Nerd!

  7. this is an old topic that we are still dealing with…if u analyze what is being said this is what it is how is it that I am unemployed or an underachiever on unemployment or working a low paying job and how can this person who is not a part of white america be doing better than I am. racism will get u nowhere and maybe if your lips were fuller u would speak with some intelligence. if u are unhappy with your life than do something about it fix it or do what the rest of the cowards do end it….

  8. Watch Jemelle Hill on “Around the Horn” and thinks she’s great…What is this guy talking about???

    I bet if we began to ignore all this foolishness then it would stop. Many know they can get Black people all riled up over anything. Ignore these types of childish attempts for attention.

    • As a black man..white folks cannot get me riled up over anything. What stereotype are you buying into about black people created by white folks? Speak for yourself!
