I watched the SNL hockey skit and I hate it? As a black person that watches hockey I am sick of the whole “LOLZ black people don’t know or like hockey!!!” trope. The whole “black dude doesn’t know hockey terms and it’s too cold for black people to like!” thing is so fucking ugly. It makes my life hard because when I say I watch hockey people act like I’m a fucking alien.
Can we stop please acting like black people and hockey are weird together? Also, I hate how they pointed out the black fan as if the black dude shouldn’t be there.
The fact that white hockey tumblr is in love with this skit says a lot, tbh.
