Who is stashing all these old Tupac Shakur letters? According to a jail missive from the later rapper, he broke up with Madonna because she was white. 

No, it wasn’t that black and white. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Reports TMZ:

The rapper poured out his heart to the singer in an extremely revealing letter he wrote in jail.

Tupac writes, “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.”  The legend then confesses, “But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my ‘image’ I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was.”

It’s an amazing letter. Tupac clearly knows he devastated Madonna by the rejection, saying, “I never meant to hurt you.”

Read the entire letter right here.

It goes up for auction July 19 – July 28 with a starting bid of $100K.
