I suppose, but bananas are Asian, not African. If it was intended to be racist, it's certainly not apparent or clever.While I'm not aware of the incident (I live in Atlanta, we're bad enough at being hockey fans that we lost our team twice), I would assume it was a black player. And from there I would assume it has to do with the racist calling of black people monkeys. And monkey - banana. It could very well have never been intended as a racist thing, but depending on the perspective taken it could be taken as racist initially.
