Jamie Kapp, 19, understands that many people don’t get institutionalized racism. So the teen created a comic strip to break down white privilege.

The cartoon was effective, but Kapp was shocked to learn that she had become a victim of bullying, death threats and hate mail because of her efforts.

Kapp ended up shutting her blog down, but not before posting the following response.

Today in Post-Race History: The Case of Richie Incognito

Incognito and MartinWe’ve been following the Miami Dolphins’ bullying case starring a dude whose real name is actually Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin here on the BYP, because sports–and sports stories–are never entirely about sports. I’m repeating myself and others when I say that sports is a microcosm of the culture, and this issue is no exception. For those of you who haven’t been following, know this: a few weeks ago, Jonathan Martin, an offensive lineman for the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, abruptly left the team. What we learned in the aftermath is that Martin had been the victim of vicious hazing, even though hazing is generally a team ritual reserved for rookies and Martin is no longer in his first year. This hazing/bullying included over 1100 texts between Martin and Richie Incognito, who has emerged as one of the key players involved in bullying Martin.
