There’s already a stereotype that black people don’t play hockey. Â For the most part it’s true since the NHL is the least integrated sport but there are some black members and unfortunately although its 2012 they still suffer racism. Â Read more after the jump.
I once even posted a story about a fan throwing a banana peel at Wayne Simmonds of the Philadelphia Flyers. Â The racism is just terrible.
This is the reaction on Twitter as Washington Capitals Winger Joel Ward scored the game winning goal in overtime to oust the defending champion Boston Bruins.
Chirpstory.com collects Tweets on trending topics to tell a story with only the tweets. The story these tweets tell is that there is a whole hell of a lot of racist Boston Bruins fans. Of course this is not representative of Boston fans or of hockey fans in general, but it is scary that these people so easily put their racist feelings out there.
oh and the best one of all smh
And here’s the game winning OT goal, congrats Joel Ward!!!
