By now, it is not uncommon for people to take to social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook and express their hate, bigotry and general. Some of our biggest stories in 2012 involved twitter gangsters going after athletes with racist slurs and even death threats for performance on the field. (Or on the ice as in the case of hockey player Joel Ward) Although it is inexcusable, there is probably a percentage of those people who aren’t klansmen, just angry fans who allow their underlying racism bubble to the top through an easy outlet. Given time to think about it, most of those people probably wouldn’t tweet their racist thoughts, just keep them to themselves or share within their circle. But then you have the guy who sent ESPN’s Jemele Hill the following letter. It takes time to think out and write a hand written letter, it takes time to find an envelope and put a stamp on it and walk it to your mailbox. This is well thought out hatred and bigotry. Don’t know details, but I wouldnt be surprised if it wasn’t signed and sent with no return address. I salute Jemele for putting this guy out there to show the world that there is still people out there who take the time to express their hate. Interestingly she notes that most of the hand written letter she receives are racist.
