Denver Bronco Brandon Marshall was sent an extremely racist letter


Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall shared a hateful letter he received on Friday, reports the New York Daily News

Marshall shared the letter on Instagram, where he wrote, "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."

The letter refers to Marshall, an incredibly important member of the Broncos' defense, "worthless" and also says that he should "go back to Africa." 

The letter goes on to threaten marshall, saying "Your time is coming, watch out n*****." 

Marshall was one of the first players in football to join San Francisco 49ers' quarterback Colin Kaepernick's protest of the treatment of black people in America. Marshall took a knee during the national anthem during the Broncos' season opener against the Panthers. 

The picture of the letter made its way around social media.
