In S.D., come for the hockey. Stay for the racism

Looking for the racists at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid City? They’re up in the luxury boxes, according to TV station KOTA.

On Saturday, Justin Poor Bear, a father who chaperoned 57 American Horse School students from Allen to a hockey game, says men in a luxury suite poured beer on the kids below and hurled racial slurs.

He writes on his Facebook page:

Tom Helland, president of Eagle Sales, a beer wholesaler, said his company rents the suite and allowed guests from out-of-town to use it. No one from the distributor was involved, according to KOTA.

The hockey team is planning to invite the kids back.
