DeSantis Says NHL ‘Not Welcome’ After Blatantly Racist Job Posting by Russell Bartlett7 hours 7 hours ago
After the NHL posted an ad for a recruiting event in the state that is open to everyone except able-bodied white men, the governor’s office sounded off.
Here’s what the Daily Wire reported:
“Discrimination of any sort is not welcome in the state of Florida, and we do not abide by the woke notion that discrimination should be overlooked if applied in a politically popular manner or against a politically unpopular demographic,”
“We call upon the National Hockey League to immediately remove and denounce the discriminatory prohibitions it has imposed on attendance to the 2023 ‘Pathway to Hockey’ summit,” the statement continued.
While it might be true that white men make up most of the NHL, there’s no push to stop recruiting minorities from the NBA, NFL, and other leagues where they are disproportionately represented.
As you might imagine, news of this racist, sexist job posting got people talking on social media.
