Some poor excuse for a human sent this racist letter to Kevin Sumlin

College football is one of America’s great institutions that offers many a getaway from the rigors of everyday life. Unfortunately however college football, like sports in general also often times brings out the worst of society.

Take for instance the letter Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin received from some pathetic excuse for a human being.

Sumlin’s wife posted the letter in it’s entirety on Twitter:

You read that right. Sumlin got called the N-Word because some shit head doesn’t approve of the way he’s coaching a football team.

Sitting in 2017 I wish I could say I’m surprised by this. But like anything else we’ve seen this year, I’m not. As much as we want to distance ourselves from this Country’s ugly past when dealing with racism, we have to just fully admit we still have a problem with some of that same nastiness.

Can we move past it? I certainly hope so.
