There's many people I know who follow hockey in the U.S. There are countless number of times where the Habs have played against their teams and we have been referred to as "the stupid french" (even by people on other teams' boards here.) To you and me, this statement is, naturally, idiotic because we know we have maybe 2 francophone players on the team. However it goes to show that even a generally spoken language in Quebec is a base for discrimination.

Is it therefore, I ask, far-fetched that a player's skin color on said "stupid french team" is also a basis for discrimination ? I don't think so...
