right, and being a good scout, you wouldn't care if you were watching "white" canadians or "purple" canadians while scouting hockey, would you?
So there is really no need, or sense, to argue that "white-canadians" are better at sport 'X' than "black/yellow/red/green/brown - australians"...
all you need to say is that Canada develops better hockey players than "insert country".
Skin tones play no role in determining sports ability....
although, if they ever came up with some sort of tag-like sport played in the dark, I suppose that being dark-skinned would come in handy... likewise it would be a massive handicap if they moved the game to the arctic in the middle of summer
I wouldn't care what colour they were (got Jason Doig, J-L Grand-Pierre and Frankie Boullion on my NHL 07 team)
But it's not secret that the average hockey player is a white-Canadian; and it's not a big deal at all.
