ESPN’s Jemele Hill Shares Examples of Racist, Sexist Hate Mail She Receives
Jemele Hill tweeted a picture of a hate letter ESPN received about her, and unfortunately hate letters infested with racial slurs is nothing new for the African-American columnist.
As much as we would like to believe that racism is a thing of the past, a hate letter sent to Hill is just proof that we have a long way to go.
ESPN received yet another racist letter about Hill after she appeared on Colin Cowherd’s show “The Herd.”
The author of the hate mail called Hill an extensive list of derogatory names and even stated that she needed to be taken off the air before she “back-slides into some Ebonics-laden inarticulate mumbo jumbo tirade … I don’t like women broadcasters to begin with, yet alone b***h ‘Jungle-Bunnies,’ ” the hate mail read.
Being ever so creative with their racial slurs, the author of the hate mail also referred to Hill as a “spear-chucker” and a “thick-lipped gorilla.”
Even Jemele had to admit that the angry viewer pulled the “hat trick of racial slurs.”
