CHICAGO -- This is easily the best 15-second interview you'll see today.

While WGN was live on TV Monday night during their coverage of the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup win, Marcus Leshock approached a man as he walked down the street.

"How about that? How you feeling today?" Leshock asked. "You're live on the air,"Leshock reminded him before handing over the microphone.

"You know how awesome the 'Hawks are? " the man asked Leshock. "This is going to sound messed up, but it's true. They've got black people loving hockey. Ain't that something?"

Chicago defeated Tampa Bay 2-0 on Monday night to claim the best-of-seven series in six games. The Blackhawks also won the NHL title in 2010 and 2013.

Five of the six games were decided by a single goal.

    It is funny. I just wonder why black people get to say racist things but nobody else is allowed to. It’s like the movie “White Men Can’t Jump.” Why was nobody outraged over that title?

      What’s racist about black people not loving hockey? What’s racist about white people not being able to *jump*? Compare that to just about any stereotype about black people; is not being able to jump really a negative?

      (Also, did you even see the movie? Spoiler: Woody Harrelson throws down a wicked oop at the end.)

      Seriously, do you even know the meaning of the word “racist”?
