Richard Sherman gave one of the best NFL postgame interviews of all time to Erin Andrews, with the air of a pro wrestling heel. Some people didn't like Sherman's act, which is stuffy, but fine. But others didn't like it, and to voice their displeasure, said some remarkably racist, vile things in public.

Just as a reminder, tomorrow is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a day in remembrance of the most famous leader in the African-American civil rights movement.
