Ice Skating is Racist
« on: February 20, 2021, 04:49:40 PM »

Purely a coincidence (move along), but on the same day DeBlasio sabotages a Trump ice rink project in NYC, Vox comes out with hard hitting journalism that ice skating is racist and it must change or die.

Many of my black friends have commented to me on the pain of their exclusion from the world of ice skating.

This member used to have another name, and the name that this member used to have was fistful.

I see just as many poor kids if not more as white kids at our local rinks.

The Left in 2021:

"Amerikkka is a white supremacist nation in which POC are in constant fear for their lives. If Donald Trump doesn't murder them with Covid, he'll get them with his slave patrol police nazis.

Also, they'd really like to do some ice-skating."
