    Just saw this. No one ever calls out blacks when they use the race card. What "racism" has Ward experienced, especially on a "day-to-day occurrence." Professional blacks and the media still pretend it's the 1950s, or even 1850s. Total bs.

    Sharks' Joel Ward could bring anthem protests to NHL

    SAN JOSE, Calif. — Sharks forward Joel Ward told The Mercury News he might take a knee during the national anthem at an upcoming game, becoming the first NHL player to join the protests that started in the NFL and drew criticism from President Donald Trump.

    The 36-year-old Ward, one of about 30 black players in the league, is from Canada. Asked by the newspaper if he would consider kneeling during the anthem, Ward said it's something he “wouldn't cross out.”

    “I've experienced a lot of racism myself in hockey and on a day-to-day occurrence,” he said. “I haven't really sat down to think about it too much yet, but I definitely wouldn't say no to it.”

    He's lying. In this day and age he hasn't experienced a lot of racism and certainly not on a day to day basis.

    Only a gullible fool would believe him when he lies and says this.

    Younger coloreds (20s-30s & younger) have never experienced any legitimate discrimination...only imaged, contrived & embellished.

    I have experienced more discrimination in the last ten yrs. than any black, young or old. I blame ever bit of it to the Obama administration . Holder, Lynch and Obama is the cause behind all of it. They destroyed race relations in America.
