Definitely stupid, probably(not definitely) racist.
But I'm more bothered by all the hyperbole and mock outrage about it.
Why wouldn't people be bothered by it?
I have no problem being bothered with it, I guess. It's more the extent of which people are upset. Like throwing around the words "hate crime"... Stuff like that.
I’m not familiar with Ontario Provincial law or Canadian Federal laws, but what the cowardly piece of filth did would be considered a hate crime in some US States:
Its definitely harassment and even threatening based 100% on racial prejudice.
I shouldn’t be surprised people think this is OK or even funny. It is the Internet after all.
If the piece(s) of filth that threw the banana peels had the courage of their convictions they would have confronted Simmonds personally to let him know they didn’t like him because he is black. Instead they anonymously & cowardly threw banana peels at him. The perpetrator(s) is a pathetic loser, just like the pathetic losers on the Internet that try to rationalize this act as being funny or immature.
