Racism doesn't necessarily mean that he's prejudice on skin colour.

It has to do with the mannerisms, culture, etc. Hockey players are supposed to be classy, WASPy, quiet and polite individuals (a sport that is like 98% white). Whereas in Basketball, players are allowed, expected and often encouraged to have an "attitude"based on the urban culture of the game, post-1990. PK's "attitude" is constantly challenged by announcers and colormen, yet if he were playing basketball, he would be pretty quiet in comparison. See the double standard in relation to race?
To be honest, I don't think it's bad on Carbo's fault, I think it's just the sense of institutional racism in hockey.
