That said, I find that, as with any sport, there's a small percentage of really low class guys on the ice on any given night and when the tempers flare, I could easily see racial comments coming out. I do think if it was heard by refs or even other players, it would get stopped immediately. At least out here nobody would put up with it.
Lotta Asians out here and a few Indians, and I've never heard a racial comment directed at any of them.
I know that guy! At least, there is one in my league. Hes an older black guy, nicest dude ever, but hes jack diesel.
