Great comments from Anson Carter about the racist tweets (via AP):

Quote:
After Ward’s decisive goal, Carter tweeted “Warrrrrrrrrrdo!!” and was soon subjected to several racist tweets himself. Carter said he tracked down one of the tweeters, a student at Eastern Connecticut State University, and called the school president’s office Thursday. Later that afternoon, the student called Carter to apologize, and Carter accepted it.

He said that when he got traded to Boston his rookie season, his parents were afraid for him to play there.

“They had heard all the talk about Boston being racist, but I got nothing but love there,” said Carter, who scored 70 goals for the Bruins. “I was a black hockey player – so what. I was a Bruin, and that’s all that mattered.”
