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 Hill being on the show. In January, a disgruntled fan sent a handwritten letter that begged the network to not have Black people hosting.
“Get her outa here before she backslides 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,” the letter detailed.
