Letters: Flyers: Like white on ice

Posted: June 14, 2010

I'M HAPPY THAT this Flyer pandemonium is finally over.

As an African-American male, I could never identify with the culture of ice hockey. For one, I don't even know if the team or league has an African-American.

So why should I feel upset that they lost? Even if there was any possibility of a Jackie Robinson in the NHL, I sure don't know of one.

The NHL is unwittingly practicing athletic apartheid as result of their white ice. I look forward to the Eagles, Sixers and Redskins season, which will give me something to culturally identify with. Go, Donovan!
