Evander Kane, NHL Stars Talk Racism, Discrimination in Hockey on UNINTERRUPTED

The recently created Hockey Diversity Alliance held a public meeting on Uninterrupted on Monday and detailed their experiences with discrimination during their time in the NHL.

San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane and former NHLer Akim Aliu announced the creation of the organization, featuring several veteran minority hockey players, earlier in June. The Hockey Diversity Alliance announced its mission was "to eradicate racism and intolerance in hockey."

In the latest video, they discussed the organization's purpose while also providing personal perspectives on racism.

"As minorities in the NHL and coming through hockey, we've been undervalued, and we've been overlooked," Kane said.
