Irrational fear at the root of racism

Joel Ward, an  African-Canadian hockey player’s winning game prompted losers to tweet a bunch of racist remarks. I feel sorry for those people who cannot stand the fact that the world is changing and has changed and with equal opportunity talents from any culture, colour, creed or race could rise to the top.  That racist stain is so indelibly implanted in some folks that unfortunately it has become an incurable dis-ease. I say to Joel  – play on my boy, your success is the best revenge. Go on winning and let them howl. Unearned privilege because of the colour of your skin is no longer a guarantee – thank goodness.
