Race matters. Race matters in part because of the long history of racial minorities’ being denied access to the political process.

Race matters to a young man’s view of society when he spends his teenage years watching others tense up as he passes, no matter what neighborhood he grew up. Race matters to a young woman’s sense of self when she states her hometown, and then is pressed, ‘No, where are you really from?’

The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to speak openly and candidly on the subject of race, and to apply the Constitution with eyes open to the unfortunate effects of centuries of racial discrimination.

I never thought that you and I would ever meet again

I’m so confused I don’t know what to feel

Should I throw my arms around you or kill you for real?

I worked so hard to put the past to rest

Where do we begin now that you’re back from the dead?

Okay, so I know I get kinda fired up when people are hard on Nazem Kadri and P.K. Subban for their style of play but the perception of athletes of colour as being less disciplined and more violent than their white teammates is a well-documented phenomenon.

Check out this study, which found that Black soccer players in the English Premier League get carded more often than white players: http://www.msaag.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/4-Sullivan-et-al-MSG-442012F.pdf

(There was another British study done that found that British soccer announcers typically described Latin American players as being irrational and hysterical while praising white British players for being courageous, stoic, etc… I can’t seem to find it but if anyone else knows the one I mean, please send a link my way.)

What white people perceive as tenacity in white athletes they perceive as aggression in athletes of colour. When David Clarkson or Dion Phaneuf or Colton Orr gets a stupid penalty, it’s written off as just another stupid penalty. When Nazem Kadri gets a stupid penalty, it’s because he’s “undisciplined” and “hot-tempered” and “needs to learn his place.” When Morgan Rielly or Jake Gardner fucks up, it’s chalked up to nerves or inexperience. When Kadri fucks up, he’s benched.

Racism in professional sports is a very real thing and the NHL is no exception. It’s important to call it out when you see it and hold announcers, coaches, officials, players, and fans accountable.
