Nothing to do with race, everything to do with being cocky IMO. Anyone in hockey who is cocky and really confident usually gets attacked unless they can really back it up. It's pretty rare for the hockey media or the NHL in general to embrace people who stand out or really speak their minds, hockey is a game of cliches and canned questions and answers, it plays it all very safe and straight laced.
