Aaaand I'm done defending him. Get everything you can for him. Now.

For the record, do you know who the most popular Jet is here in Winnipeg? It's Byfuglien.

People bash Prab Rai because they had the idea that he was going to be a good player for us (I don't know why) and he isn't even a good player in the ECHL.

I somewhat agree with Evander that racism is still well and alive in hockey.

That being said, he doesn't get criticized because he's black. He gets criticized because he's a douche, which is an accurate criticism.

What a chump. Playing the race card like every other coloured moron that does it.

Next time I get criticized for something, I'm going to play the race card. "It's because I'm white!" or "It's because I have an Irish background!"

I have no doubt some of PK Suban's criticism is racially motivated and so is Evnader Kane's.

I've always bashed him, but only soley for the facts he's a douche canoe. I've met him a few times at a few different locations and he's just a straight up dink.

I was referring to Prab not Evander

Really? It's not the cockiness?

PK and Evander are humble?

Iginla, Simmons, Setoguchi not cocky no problem

I have no doubt that there are racist people out there who don't like Evander Kane. It does not account for a "good portion" of the criticism he receives, as he puts it.

But then much of the flak he gets about his weight must be racially motivated then, no? Clearly nothing to do with his actual weight...

People bash Prab Rai because they had the idea that he was going to be a good player for us (I don't know why) and he isn't even a good player in the ECHL.

This, I don't bash Rai at all because I know nothing about him personally. The only information I have other than his hockey stats are how he was in a car accident with an expensive vehicle he purchased after he signed his contract. I'd have to look up the details on that even to see if I got it correct.

Having said that, he's never been high on my prospect list as he seems to play small and won't be able to effectively use his skill against higher level players. I went to high school with a guy the Canucks drafted in the 7th round years back, and while he was better than me, he didn't look so much better that I'd think he'd be someone to be successful in the NHL based on what I'd seen.

I have no doubt some of PK Suban's criticism is racially motivated and so is Evnader Kane's.

Sure, but is that a significantly higher percentage than any other person of colour, or do they receive it because of their actions and attitude?

I think he's trying to play UP the stereo type, by use of the "gangster rapper" with the big stacks of cash, and identifying himself as a "Young Money Cash Money Billionaire"

He's going out of his way to use black stereotypes so he can pull the race card when people think his antics are unbecoming of an athlete.

The fact remains that he is a Canadian kid born in Vancouver, not Compton or College park. He's not a creation of his circumstance, he went out of his way to act like this. Its not like he's from the hood and all his friends acted and talked like this, and shaved their head with cocky slogans that only (predominantly black) rappers would understand.

This is a sport where respect is king. There is a tradition of paying dues and putting the team before the name on the back. Showing a giant money stack on a balcony in Las Vegas during a bitter lockout that was mainly about money is INSULTING to the fans who in the end made it possible for him to have that money.

He should have donated that entire stack of money to charity.

Black people don't act like that, assholes act like that.

People like Evander Kane give actual racists an excuse to hate.

People who dont like his antics might call him racial slurs - not because they actually dislike his race, but because he's acting like the negative stereotype of the racial slur. He deserves whatever names people want to call him.

no, sorry. there is no excuse for racial slurs. nobody who isn't racist calls a black person the N word simply because of his or her bad behavior. would you?

edit: also no one deserves to be called by a racial slur. there's plenty of vocabulary to describe idiots without resorting to their race.

It's crazy that don cherry can go one TV and say the most degrading things imaginable about Russians or Europeans with nothing but chuckles as a reaction.

Kane pulls racism out of his bum with no actual basis and its a huge story on TSN.

If we are all created equal then why is it ok to publicly make fun of a Russian or swede yet its borderline Satanic to criticize a Canadian born black person that is currently sucking at playing a "game" for millions of dollars.

This guy is a joke.


It is a pretty strange context full of contradictions.
I don't doubt his gangsta-thing has precipitated it's share of reaction.
"He did single out Twitter and social media as a place where he's seen a lot of really racist things said about him," Campbell said.
He's also a 21 year old millionaire who's flaunting the fact...and might not exactly be a spokesperson for underpriveleged people - (he's probably not really Winnipeg's Most Wanted), but no doubt has attracted attention he doesn't want.
As you say - the CBC has provided a platform for 'comedic' jingoism for quite some time now, and it hasn't bothered to narrow or limit itself to racial grounds - almost everyone has had the pleasure of being unEnglishCanadian (except us English Canadians who probably wouldn't elect Cherry our spokesperson - and have enough self-respect without needing to run the rest of the world down) - Cherry has identified hockey with rants against Russians, Swedes, Europeans in general, even Americans and American GMs of Onterrible teams without enough good ole Ontario boys... It's probably past it's best before date.
A whole lot of confused identity and stuff that's hard to take too seriously.

Subban and Kane are both giant douches. And both black.

You know who else are douches? Avery, Carcillo, Marchand, Lapierre, Pronger, Bertuzzi, Cooke, Eager. All not black.

Suck it up princess Evander. Dude needs to mature and do it fast.
