This is still the kind of bullshit we’re facing in 2017. Unbelievable.
Just days after Texas A&M lost to the UCLA in the season-opening game, the Aggies head football coach Kevin Sumlin received a nasty letter in the mail from a disgruntled, and extremely racist, fan.
His wife, Charlene, shared an image of the aggressive note on Twitter, saying:
People of 2017: please tell me how any part of this is ok. And to the sender: did it occur to you that a child may open it?#orelseWHAT? pic.twitter.com/Co1s2Hb94r

One of the couple’s four children responded to their mom’s tweet, adding:
Imagine being a kid & reading this bs abt your dad. Things “fans” say gets taken personal by more than just the coach. Humanity isn’t hard. https://t.co/ueLMcycL9e

This is NOT OK!
University reps have since expressed their support of the Sumlin family, and are working with local authorities to make sure the sender faces consequences.
If only we had a President that denounced this kind of behavior…
