  • The American Hockey League suspended Bakersfield Condors defenseman Brandon Manning for five games after he directed a racial slur toward an opponent during Monday’s contest against the Ontario Reign.
  • The Condors are the AHL affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers, while the Reign are the Los Angeles Kings’ top farm team.
  • Manning released the following statement:

“Last night I made comments to an opposing player that were stupid and offensive. After the game I spoke with the opposing player in person, which I’m very grateful for. He allowed me to apologize and I took full responsibility for what I said.

To say I’ve learned from this situation is an understatement and I promise to be better.”

  • Cool apology, now have Manning say it rather than a lawyer type it out.
  • No matter where we live & what we do, this incident serves as a reminder that prejudice exists everywhere, & must be confronted and exposed.
  • Not with hate, not with violence, but with the steady resolve and underlying compassion Dr. Martin Luther King would insist upon.
