A noose that was found hanging in Black stock car racer Bubba Wallace's garage stall in Alabama was a pull rope that had been placed there in October, long before the stall was assigned to Wallace, the FBI announced Tuesday.No crime. It was a pull rope.
But, Bubba himself claims he never saw it. Which leads to some questions. If he didn't see it, why did he fell a compulsion to talk about it? Why did he immediately have to ump to victim status? Was this a hoax designed to injure NASCAR?
NASCAR is about auto-racing. It's about who comes across the finish line first. It should not be about racial injustice, or perceived slights. Wallace may have a good future in auto-racing, but he may not, either. Time will tell. He needs to focus on getting across the finish line before the other drivers. Wallace is a NASCAR driver, with a team behind him, and now, they are laughing-stocks. The source of mirth.
There are people in the world who are hyper-sensitive to various sensations. Light-sensitive, touch-sensitive, taste-sensitive. Hyper sensitivity is a disability. Perhaps Wallace and his team should get serious psychological counseling, and offer heart-felt apologies to the sport that lets them make a living. Otherwise, they are just assholes.
