Tupac Shakur: Was He a Racist?!?

Reports from several sources are claiming that a letter that was recently found was apparently penned by none other than the late Tupac Shakur. The recently discovered letter allegedly has some statements in it that mentions the reason why Tupac and Madonna split up, back in the early 90’s.

Sources claim that the letter states that Tupac ended his relationship with Madonna because she was white. Tupac briefly dated Madonna back in 1995 when he was locked up behind bars for part of that year. The iconic rapper rose to stardom for his gripping lyrics and movie roles. So, it was no surprise to anyone back then when he hooked up with Madonna, who was also at a high pinnacle in her celebrity status.

This is what Tupac wrote in his letter to Madonna:

“For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardize your career, if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting,” Tupac wrote. “But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my ‘image’ that I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was.”


It can be safely assumed from reading this, Tupac is clearly trying to get out of the relationship with Madonna by telling her that his fans may not like him dating a white woman. This also could loosely say that perhaps Tupac felt as though his fans were a bit racist themselves.

Tupac Shakur was probably not racist to the core, but he was obviously considering the race card when referencing to potential backlash that he would receive from his fans for dating Madonna.

The conclusion here is, Racism obviously still exists!
