The Carolina Hurricanes have put out a statement about the protests.

The Carolina Hurricanes are one of the 30 teams to have put out a statement about the protests. While it is better than most statements put out there, is it enough?

I have not hidden who I am or my stance on racial justice or the injustices faced by the minority communities across the United States and Canada. Hockey has had more than it’s share of racism and exclusivity when it comes to these minority communities.

Players of color have been subjugated to harsh treatment, unfair contracts, and bounced around from team to team no matter how good they are.
