''Sending the attack dogs out'' might seem like a good idea at first, but you're only giving exposure to what appears to be a moron.

I like to believe that this (hopefully) does not represent the opinion of most sens fans.

A nobody. Certainly not a mainstream reporter.

You guys already have Garrioch and Brennan to worry about.

If this guy wrote for a paper or something, I'd complain for him to lose his job. If he's just some idiot blogger, probably better just to ignore him and not give him any attention. I don't know who he is so, I'm just going to leave it be.

Let him be an idiot on his own.

Here's an instance where my age and na´vetÚ come into play. Back in my day, the older kids in school used to refer to the younger kids as yard apes. Never used in a racial way. Having said that, I can see why/how it can be used in a racial way. It's all about context I suppose.

Not sure what some obscure reporter has to to with the NHL.

it's nasty term; in fact 'yard ******' was a regular slur used by slave owners

For the record, this is also the first time I've ever heard the term 'yard ape'.

The above quote by DJ Breadman is exactly what I'm talking about.

He's a 'freelance reporter' no one from Ottawa has ever heard of. That doesn't make him a reporter. That makes him an unemployed idiot who lives in Ottawa.

This isn't a commentary on your post, only this type of opinion regarding racism.

I wouldn't say that this guy represents Ottawa. But he's obviously not the only racist from Ottawa. I'm not saying that Ottawa creates racists. What I am saying though is that I have a problem with the notion that every racist is just an "isolated idiot." I think it distracts from the nature of racism that is encountered most often, which is systemic. The places we are from inform our opinions, our religions, our thoughts, feelings, and even the sports teams we cheer for. But whenever racism is the topic, that basic truth is discarded out of hand.

You don't have to represent a society in order to be a product of it, in other words.

Where does it say that PK IS A YARDAPE? .... If all he said is 'anybody but that yardape' .... Then it's all just an assumption isn't it?

Not going to post the entry but whenever there's a term I've never heard it's the site to go to.

And actually, since this guy isnt' even a journalist, I vote for locking this thread. No point in giving him the attention he's so desperately seeking.
