Apparently the idea of racism in hockey is now a hot topic in Canada. All I can say is what took everyone so long? Hockey is a white man’s sport. It is very expensive to have your kid properly equipped to play the game at any age.
You do not go to college as part of the process of becoming a professional hockey player in Canada. Nope, you can just ride the buses through our racist hinterland and if you are white and talented this could be a wonderful time of your life. Not so much for non white kids who must learn to tolerate all kinds of racial abuse.
This has been going on for a long time.
But maybe, it is starting to change. At least people are talking about racist coaches at the NHL level.
We need to change that system and make the road to the National Hockey League one that is all inclusive, encourages education and personal growth, one that makes it an enjoyable experience for all kids who deserve to go to the next level.
