The Religion of Peace - Lower Mainland Division

Shocked I was, absolutely shocked that Sunnis and Shiites couldn't get along in a ball hockey tournament at BCIT. After all, they're a shining example of peaceful co-existence all over the world, so why not here?
And while I'm at it, why do the media (so gingerly) covering this story keep referring to the fisticuffs as being allegedly "racially" motivated?
There are no races of Homo Sapiens Sapiens in reality of course, but however sloppy one might be in throwing that term and concept around, Sunnis and Shiites don't qualify. They are sects of Islam, which is a religion (of sorts) and engage in sectarian violence between themselves while they engage in jihad in its various forms against the rest of us.
Typical sloppy, intellectually lazy work from the MSM, but of course, when you pay peanuts you get monkeys.
