So I'm on my Facebook today and I see this post and I proceed to 'like' it when suddenly I decide to read some of the comments and there's tons of racist comments there, absolutely horrible. I can't believe so many people are still so openly racist out there and so against specifically a black player playing hockey.

Cameron Jordan posed for this photo after scoring three goals and four assists in a Rec League game in Rochester, New York. He is today's Red Wings Facebook Fan of the Day, presented by Amway US.

No there are some. Jarome Iginla is one he's going to the hall of fame probably.

Racism, in the nhl man come on? Their aren't a lot of ice rinks where black people live and grow up and most of the black people in the nhl are from canada where the only sport to play is hockey. And jarome iginia isn't going to the hall of fame. And you can't say racism is not only in hockey, racism is in every sport.

^ Yeah, but it's different. I'm not comparing it to hockey in the sense that there's no diversity in it ethnically, I'm saying futbol (soccer) probably has the most racism in it from the crowds, fans, & countries overall. Why do you think they've even had to do the whole 'say no to racism or stop racism' movement in FIFA?
