You missed a word there.

For one, you're not going to stop and think, "wait, he's back" before you make a comment like that. Looney Toons, Mario Kart, and Mythbusters as well as countless cartoons and other media and remarks throughout the ages have reference to a PERSON slipping on a banana peel. Mythbusters proved it can happen.

Don't say that to a Hispanic player....
Hey, he's Russian...
No, no he's...

Where does it stop? There is no justification. I was raised in the South. I was part of the segregated busing program in elementary school, as was my brother. I'm well aware of racism. I know what to avoid and what not to. This is pathetic. That simple.

Future now!
