That's probably it. Like I said already, wasn't trying to get into some heated racial discussion. The media seems to pile it on these guys a little more than most, not saying the media is racist but maybe this kind of junk gets viewers for whatever reason.

No reason for nasty words, folks. I never normally bring up race, I was just making an observation.

edit: I should probably tie this in with the actual topic. I would take Evander Kane in a heartbeat. The kid can play, I don't care if he's aware of the fact that he's good.
