I'm Filipino...so kinda Asian. I play on a team where half the guys are Chinese. We play with a lot of under 30 guys and we're in LA so racism and conservatism rarely apply out here. We get the usual, you guys should be the yellow team jokes but other than it's pretty mellow. We're all judged on how we play.
It's funny you post this now, cause after playing hockey for 2 years my minority status only came into question last week. The guy was a jerk on the ice, so I'm not surprised he said it but when I took off my goalie mask he was shocked that I wasn't white and called me a "Black Asian". That had to be one of the most ignorant comments I've ever heard in my life.
