    Ah yes, USA Hockey hired the guy with history of calling his own players by unspeakable racial slurs, but you can't criticize it unless there is a "noticeable decline in participation of black hockey players at the international and local level," which was already statistically close to zero to begin with. Yes, of course. Really good take, bro. You definitely care about this issue, and you have won the day by using logic, and reason.

    What basis do you have for saying any of this?

    1st Bolded: what "heavy price" did he pay?

    2nd Bolded: Wow, I didn't realize Beezer had been tried and executed already. That's wild, man. How could USA Hockey hire a deceased convict to run their hockey ops. This certainly does cast doubts on their leadership!

    3rd Bolded: Come on, with this....

    4th Bolded: Uhhhhhh...maybe "mistakes" you make? Not everyone makes these mistakes, bro. I would venture a guess that any white person who has played hockey has heard these "mistakes" from teammates and understands they are not "mistakes" but instead just regular modes of speaking in a place where it is assumed no one will object.

    Perhaps you are telling on yourself? Or, wait - lemme guess - you are the least racist person who has ever existed? My mistake, sorry bro.

    I can't believe what you just wrote here but whatever.

    I am not deleting anything sir, I have no reason to.

    I am simply not comfortable with the kind of attitude you and others seem to have, namely................unforgiveness.

    I wasn't raised this way and I don't believe in the way you look at things and I for one am glad I don't , I actually feel sorry for you.

    Where you get that I say racism does not matter from my posts is beyond me but think as you wish, or rather, make stuff up in your head as you wish, i don't really care, I know who i am and I am fine with it.

    And I am fine with forgiveness and seconds chances, if you aren't, so be it.

    I have said all i am going to say to you in my previous post, I don't waste too much time with people with your attitude. You can think as you wish but I for one am not going to go through life like that.

    Forgiveness is all well and good, but should racism be forgiven automatically?

    If the person is truly regretful and changed(i at the very least sure hope he is and has proven it, which I would have to think U.S.A hockey has looked into) then I would hope that after 15 years that yes, forgiveness can happen.

    15 years is far from automatically after all.

    Out of curiosity, what are you forgiving that I am not?

    In an interview with the Athletic today, Vanbiesbrouck would like to remind us that HE'S the victim of all of this.

    Incredibly tone deaf comments from Vanbiesbrouck, but I'm not surprised.

    I would argue that because of the current political culture this is the best time for the hire.
