At the same time, they don't usually say, we are going to call up Weber, a white guy from Switzerland, so it is being overly conscious of his skin colour, which is borderline racism.
You're wrong...African-American means a person of African descent, living in America, specifically the USA. I understand it's an attempt to be politically correct and that's fine...but Shawn Belle is NOT African-American.
He's Canadian just like me...
As for his play last night...I thought he looked ok. He probably should of stayed put on the last goal to cover the slot but at the same time, Gionta was a bit slow reacting to cover for him as well. The defensive rotation on that play was a little off.
