Broncos’ Brandon Marshall shares racist letter he received in mail

Friday December 9th, 2016

Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall shared on Instagram Friday a racist letter he received in the mail.

He said the explicit, hateful message was delivered to him at the team’s facility.

“The hatred by some against people of color is one of the reasons we are where we're at in the world today, and they wonder why we feel the way we do and take the stances that we take. I received this letter at work,” Marshall captioned the photo.

Warning: Contains offensive, racist language.

Marshall shared the letter days after Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock’s home in New Jersey was vandalized with racist graffiti during a break-in.

The messages Whitlock received included swastikas and the word “Trump” written on the walls of his home, and Giants receiver Victor Cruz was candid Thursday in pinning the outburst of hateful, racist messages on the president-elect’s campaign rhetoric.
