Black Hockey Player Taunted With Racist Chant In Chicago

“It’s sad that in 2018 we’re still talking about the same thing,” said Washington Capitals hockey player Devante Smith-Pelly.

Washington Capitals hockey player Devante Smith-Pelly blasted the “disgusting” racist chant directed at him during an NHL game in Chicago Saturday night that led to the ejection of several fans.

The incident occurred during a game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Capitals, in which forward Devante Smith-Pelly was sent to the penalty box after fighting with Blackhawks defenseman Connor Murphy.

Sitting in the box and surrounded by hometown fans, the 25-year-old Smith-Pelly, a black Canadian, soon became incensed after four Blackhawks fans began racially taunting him with a chant of “basketball,” a Capitals spokesperson told ESPN.

“It’s pretty obvious what that means,” Smith-Pelly told reporters Sunday. “It’s just one word, and that’s all it takes. I got the idea.”

Lol . They chanted “basketball “ to a hockey player how will he ever be able to go on ?

“It’s just one word and that’s all it takes. I got the idea” . He probably had the idea before they even chanted.

The word basketball is racist eh? Because?

What about Football? is that a racist word. What about baseball? is that one racist too?

Is the word Detroit racist? Or Jersey? Or Oakland? Or Santa Monica?

And who gets to decide if a word is or is not racist?
