The Airing of Grievances
Tuesday, December 14, 2004
Wow. Those cats are taking the racism thing to a whole 'nother incredibly low level. According to Canada.com, a recent hockey game between a Russian all-star team and a team of Worldstars was interrupted twice because fans were throwing bananas at black Worldstar forward Anson Carter. "It's no big deal," said Carter. "I'm not surprised -- look around."
Sadly, I find this pretty much unsurprising as well. Granted it was not in Russia, but I used to play a little hockey myself, and there was never a shortage of racist bullshit to go around -- seems to come with the territory. But bananas? Sheesh, that's incredibly tough. Disgusting.
