There is this driver, Bubba Wallace, who happens to be black. He claims that he found a noose in his garage stall on Sunday.
On Sunday night, black NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace said he found a noose in his garage stall. Wallace had pressured NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag at events and placed a “Black Lives Matter” bumper sticker on his racecar. NASCAR did indeed ban the flag, sparking outrage and protests. NASCAR condemned the noose, and drivers expressed their support for Wallace.NASCAR, of course, is horrified.
NASCAR said in a statement on Sunday. “We have launched an immediate investigation, and will do everything we can to identify the person(s) responsible and eliminate them from the sport.”Funny thing, I can't find a picture of the noose. A Google Images search for "Bubba Wallace Noose" turns up blank. Lots of pictures of Bubba, no pictures of his noose. Not that I care, really. But, in this age of photos on the internet, you think that someone would have snapped a photo of the (alleged) noose.
NASCAR has backed themselves into a corner. Someone will be eliminated from the sport. It will be interesting to see whom that someone might be.
