The Hockey News:  Criticism hurled at Kane, Byfuglien, Subban & others is about race more than characterThis is a tough one.  Read twitter where you can see numerous examples of ignorance and racism (might be time for a campaign “think before you tweet”) that spews forth whenever these players are in the news.  While you cannot deny that same exists, I am also not sure it is fair to suggest that the majority of the criticism (not via social media) comes from prejudice.  Perhaps it is, but the experience I have had with fans in this city suggests this is not the case.  What do you think?
