Real or Just Stirring the Racial Pot?

During the short life span the MSM gave Ellie Light, we learned that there are certain steps dead tree editors are supposed to take regarding the "Letters to the Editor" section... I'm hoping the Philadelphia Daily News just shirked their responsibilities. This seems like a fake to me (or maybe that's just wishful thinking)...

From the June 14, 2010 Opinion section of the Philadelphia Daily News:

Flyers: Like white on ice

I'M HAPPY THAT this Flyer pandemonium is finally over.

As an African-American male, I could never identify with the culture of ice hockey. For one, I don't even know if the team or league has an African-American.

So why should I feel upset that they lost? Even if there was any possibility of a Jackie Robinson in the NHL, I sure don't know of one.

The NHL is unwittingly practicing athletic apartheid as result of their white ice. I look forward to the Eagles, Sixers and Redskins season, which will give me something to culturally identify with. Go, Donovan!

Should someone tell him that one of our goalies is Black...?
