Jagger Joshua, who plays hockey at Michigan State and is black, says a player on OSU used a racial slur against him. He says the player was kicked out of the game but is also upset that no further discipline was taken.

"Acts of racism do not belong in hockey, as they can discourage African Americans and minorities like myself from playing and loving the game," Joshua wrote in a statement. "Inaction in the face of racist comments and actions allow these behaviors to continue."

OSU's Athletic Department then released a statement on Monday night and it said a whole lot of nothing.
