The NHL is the least racially integrated of the four major American sports. If you need proof of this, you just need to see the reaction on Twitter as Washington Capitals Winger Joel Ward scored the game winning goal in overtime to oust the defending champion Boston Bruins.

Chirpstory.com collects Tweets on trending topics to tell a story with only the tweets. The story these tweets tell is that there is a whole hell of a lot of racist Boston Bruins fans. Of course this is not representative of Boston fans or of hockey fans in general, but it is scary that these people so easily put their racist feelings out there.

Here is just a sampling, for the full list click here

And my personal favorite, this guy must have Tourettes

Whether its racist crap like this or death threats against athletes (like Kyle Williams of the San Francisco 49ers) we see that sometimes sports fanaticism and assumed anonymity can be a very dangerous combination.

Although I wonder, what percentage of the people above would sing a different tune if asked to their face.

Here is video of the goal and celebration, since those racists f*ckwits probably aren’t visiting this site anyway.

  1. Please realize that these idiots (for lack of more daspicable names)do not represent the high majority of Bruins fans or the Boston/ Mass. area….I hate that the B’s lost, but the team that played better won…DW

  2. Please don’t condemm Boston. Every city has idiots like these Twitter losers who would have done the same thing if a Black Player had scored the winning goal. If the roles had been reversed you would have had some Caps Fans posting the same garbage. Plenty of coward racists everywhere.

  3. Barry Bonds was right about boston. Straight CLASSLESS and their proud of it. heck couple of them are still bragging about spitting on Bill Russell to this crap. FYI not all bostonian are classless, but shame to those that always have giving boston a bad name.

  4. Sorry Brian, but as a Philly fan, we are still hearing stupid references to booing Santa in the 60s, so spitting on Bill Russell, trashing his home in a “white neighborhood” and let’s not forget the BUSING RIOTS you morons had is something that Boston and its so-called enlightened fans just cannot be dismissed as
    “ancient history.”

  5. These people who posted this trash and have the audacity or should I say the ignorance to have their full name and pictures associated with their profiles, should be trolled into internet hell. Hey, why stop there? Call them up….call their employers, schools, etc. Their mistake!
