Jets Beat Writer Received This Racist Letter From A Reader About Her Cam Newton Article


People writing letters about Cam Newton is nothing new, we’ve seen it already — whether it’s been a mother who got upset because of his dancing or a Seahawks fan writing a letter after seeing the league-MVP throw a 12th man flag in the Panthers’ home stadium – Bank of America Stadium.

These letters have been just ridiculous and somewhat of a joke but today, the letters hit a new disgusting low.

Newsday’s Kimberly A. Martin, who is a beat writer for the New York Jets wrote an article about Cam Newton after Super Bowl 50 and in response received this letter from a fan:

Dear Ms. Martin:

You seem like a very nice young woman. I read your article about Cam Newton. You shouldn’t be surprised.  You need to understand something that your teachers, editors or colleagues are not going to say out loud: the biggest curse we have in this country is niggers. Cam Newton has no class. Why should he? Niggers don’t know the first thing about class. Look at Kanye West, Bill Cosby, etc. Look at the NY City tabloids, niggers wreak havoc on our society from top to bottom on a daily basis. This country would be so much better off without them. They fill our streets with crime, they dumb down our schools, they ruin our neighborhoods, and they act like animals. The only people that benefit from their presence in this country are owners of All-You-Can-Eat restaurants and the manufacturers of Colt 45 malt liquor. They still worship Michael Jackson and he was a sick child molester. I could go on and on.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from them as much as possible.

Yours truly,

After sharing this letter on her Twitter account, Ms. Martin shared the impact the letter had on her:

Oh, did I mention Kimberly is an African-American? 


  1. Yes, these extreme racist ingrates are around and they’ve become much more visible, but usually anonymous of course, since the internet blew up. Why she would post it instead of ignoring it, I have no idea. It only gives them a feeling of validity, it isn’t gonna help

  2. So the real story here is (according to the journalist )
    Is that white guys are the real problem in society bc of their racism) Got it..
    Why not ask the obvious questions?
    Who profited off of the triangle slave trade?
    Who now runs the corporations that will not employ the blacks now?
    Who runs the school system that dumb the blacks and whites down?
    Same guy that owns Newsday and put this bs story out there.
    You all know it’s true so don’t even try it..

      • Everything doesn’t have to be an education PSA, Any people that think that racisim is over are just as ignorant as the author of those comments and posting that filth won’t change that. That junk should’ve been tossed in the trash whete it belongs, not published and given a platform to galvanize and rally like minded bigots

        • I see your point but I disagree. Bigots who are as extreme as that letter writer are already joining one another on the same websites that the Charleston shooter used.

          This sports website reaches a different audience where there is far more subtle and less hateful racism but nonetheless people who may not be fully aware of the degree of racism that remains today. I hear way too many people who believe racism ended in the sixties so it’s good for them to be aware.

          • Guess I’ll agree to disagree. Seems like these are the main differing opinions between people who are actually black and those who are not on handling situations like these. Besides I believe highlighting systemic racism, to illustrate how racism still exists today is far more important and effective than the ramblings of some idiot. Those are just moronic misinformed personal opinions of certain people, but the statistical inequalities that many blacks face today can be put into numbers, and those are undeniably educational.
