Unless the banana was propelled onto the ice via telepathy, thoughts have nothing to do with it.
Most jurisdictions have disorderly conduct, or similar, statutes that make some conduct intended to alarm or disturb (i.e. threatening to harm someone, shouting "fire" in a crowded theater) unlawful.
What's alarming or disturbing? Well, that's what we have juries to determine. But if I'm a black guy and some a-hole lobs a banana at me, I'd be pretty alarmed and disturbed.
