I think the world has come a little further along than you give it credit for.

I don't know about America, but in Canada the visible-minorities have become the nonvisible-majorities... congrats on choosing snowboarding, you win at life

I used to hardly ever see an African American on the hill but in the past year or two it seems to be gaining popularity across races. Don't get me wrong, we're still talking 300:1.

Bring him out!

For starters, I'm black.

Honestly, he'll more likely to take sh*t from his non-riding friends ('why you want to do that white-guy sport?') than from anybody on the hill.

Following up on Cifex's comment, I still do a double take when I see another black person on a snowboard (or on skis for that matter).

snowboarders might not be, but it's those damn skiers you gotta watch out for!

in all seriousness... i know me and the people ride with wouldn't give it a second thought someone happened to be a different race, don't worry.
