A letter with racist overtones was sent to Detroit Cass Tech head football coach Thomas Wilcher following his team's victory over Detroit Catholic Central in the Division I state championship game Saturday at Ford Field.
The letter attacks the academic performance of Cass Tech students, and all Detroit Public School students.
The letter read, in part:
"I had the misfortune of attending Saturday's game. As I watched, I wondered how many of your players would be academically eligible if they attended a real school rather than a DPS holding tank.
"Do your players regularly attend class? Are they, even by DPS standards, eligible? ... DPS is a failure and in five years your players will be unemployed, in jail, addicted to drugs or worse. In a word — failures.
"The ghetto warriors had their Saturday but, in life, they are losers."
The letter was signed, and Detroit Catholic Central athletic director Aaron Babicz told The Detroit News that the name has no affiliation with the school.
"We don't know who this guy is," Babicz said. "This is devastating to our kids. The kids in school are crushed. People know it didn't come from our community."
In the most recent statistics available (2010) from the Michigan Department of Education, the overall DPS graduation rate is 62.27 percent. The graduation rate for Cass Tech students, however, was 93.70 percent, and passing an entrance exam is required to attend the school.
Renaissance had the highest graduation rate at 96.69 percent. Crockett's was 93.67 and Detroit CMA's was 93.13.
Cass Tech students also are required to maintain a minimum 2.5 grade-point average to participate in athletics. At some DPS schools the minimum requirement is a 2.0 GPA.

I wonder what sort of behavior this unnamed guy saw that would prompt him to write a letter to the coach? Hmmm...I wonder?
Nothing that would make you or I act like that much of a fucking cocksucker, I'm betting.
