As a Chicagoan, I am truly proud of our hockey team, the Blackhawks. They’ve been kicking ass on ice like they were born to do it.
To illustrate the point, I propose the following name change: the Chicago Whitehonkies!
Sure, it’s more of a slur than “Blackhawks,” but at least white folks are in the majority. (And seriously – it’s not like we suffered genocide and displacement at the hands of Native Americans.) I say, we’re better off stereotyping ourselves than those whom we’ve wronged in the past.
In the meantime… GO WHITEHONKIES!!!
