Well, Minnesota IS the state of hockey...

Getting tired of these "activists" that complain about the lack of blacks in certain situations, particularly Torii Hunter's opinions on blacks in baseball.

Someone should just send him a picture of the 86 Celtics (you know, one of the best teams of all time) with a trollface and the "problem?" caption.

Or perhaps a pair of wingtips.

America, where it's okay to be racist as long as your not white.

I should send a complaint into the Phillied whenever they use an all black outfield, which they did do at times last year.

Reverse racism is still racism. Calling a team "too white" is no different then when Rush Limbaugh said Donovan McNabb was overrated because he is black.

Not surprised he didn't say that about hockey. I guess he figures not to care about hockey since he thinks the people he claims to be a voice for doesn't care about hockey.

What a moron!!!

Reminds me of that one Toronto Star writer (now works for Seattle Free Press) who made an article about how the Jays were too white.

What an idiot I dont even know, I cant fathom how somone could possibly be that stupid. How could there ever be too many players of a skin color in any situation?

Only when a team is deliberately passing on better players because of the color of their skin. That's not happening in Minnesota, in fact a lot of people expect them to be highly competitive for a playoff spot this year once Love is back.

Could you imagine the backlash if someone said a team was too black? The media world would explode.

It is true. Crap like this is why (I am going a bit political with this) is why racism will never end. A white person would be blasted for saying "The team is to black". It would be everywhere. In a league where 78% of it's players are black making a stupid claim like this is truly moronic.

Delmon Young was charged with a hate crime this year. No one gave a ****. Imagine if someone like Dustin Pedroia was charged with one. ESPN and co. would run the story 24/7 365.

No way, they need time for the New York Jets and Sanchez/Tebow. I'd say 23/7 365.

If I was the Wolves PR guy, I'd play this at a few home games as a joke.

Was playing NBA 2K13 with a friend the other day who decided to use the Wolves, as we started playing I was sitting there thinking, wait, where's all the black guys

They are a very "white" team, but it's nothing more than coincidence I am sure, so who cares. It's also not like they are just picking up white guys from America, they have "white" people from I think it's like 5 different countries or something? I think if anything you could argue that the Wolves are ahead of the curve in this regard because more and more of these white guys from Europe are going to be coming into the league over the years in my opinion. They also have the best white American player in Love, so they are going to have a white face of the franchise for as long as he is around.

Imagine the fallout if someone came out declaring some of these NBA teams as being "too black".

Clearly the only reasonable thing for them to do is to trade Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love immediately for Jannero Pargo and Emeka Okafor.

I find it funny when white people get upset like this. It's like a rich person getting upset that a poor person said something snarky about the rich persons wealth. I want white people problems.

Just Google 'Louis CK being white'

Seriously, if you are white male, you have it made. There is nothing anyone can say that could really hurt you.
