The Western New York Amateur Hockey League is embroiled in a racism scandal after video emerged showing racist taunts against the only black player on the ice, WGRZ-TV reports.
The incident happened during a January 20 game between Amherst and Cheektowaga.
In the video, Cheektowaga players taunted Roshaun Brown-Hall with monkey gestures and noises.
“F*ck you, monkey!” one Cheektowaga player shouted while leaving the ice.
“The video is damning evidence of player misconduct, but no disciplinary action has been taken,” WGRZ’s Maryalice Demler reported.
“The referees claim not to hear the racist remarks and the scorecard shows they took no action,” WGRZ’s Michael Wooten noted.
The two teams were scheduled to face eachother in a playoff game next weekend, but that game has been cancelled, a decision that the victim’s father says punishes the innocent team while still not dealing with the racist actions.
