My kid plays with a white American kid that tries to go end to end on every possession. Why would anyone think his selfish play has anything to do with his culture or language? My kid played with a Czech kid who's probably the worst teammate anyone could ask for. Played for goals only, no assists, no defense. Is that a statement on Caucasians and his Eastern European parents? why is this even up for discussion? It has zero to do with PC, It's an opportunity to be a racial flamer.
I'll let you know the next (first time) I run into this issue with a German, Czech, Swedish, of Finish kid. That is not where the demographics are going and I'm not saying any of this is a bad thing. It just presents some challenges is my point. There have already been some good Asian players. The Du kid from Harvard and Yip from BU are the ones that come to mind. 10-15 years there are going to be a lot more so long as we are able to teach the game the right way.
