PK Subban

 

It’s amazing that in this era of social media where information and news is shared so quickly, that there are so many ignorant people still out there.

Over in Sochi a hockey fan chose to show his support for Canadian and Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban, by wearing blackface although, it is well known that doing so is a racist gesture.

    I don’t know. I might be in the minority but I don’t find it all that bad because if the person is a fan… they aren’t doing “blackface,” they are basically emulating a player they like by painting themselves Black. As long as their actions aren’t racist, than I’m okay with it.
