When Bubba Wallace began speaking up as a person of color, it set in motion the greatest paradigm shift in a sport that has received years of flak for being predominantly white and predominantly male. Wallace saw his chance to use his platform as a person of color to help push awareness of the systemic racism which plagues America. Of course; he's a human being who has been vocal on what it's like to be profiled as a black person in America. This in the face of a constant stream of brutality and racism, and the fact that he put his best foot forward did not go unnoticed.
For some, it's rocket science. The same morons who no doubt grudgingly wear their face mask in public underneath their noses are the same folks stuck in Talladega a month ago, looking for any reason they can to discredit Wallace. "LOL Bubba Smollett!" Actually, Wallace didn't find the noose, his crew did. "It was fake!" Actually, the noose was there awhile - talk about poor coincidence. "NASCAR is pandering to Wallace!" Well Karen, if you weren't boasting about wanting to drag Wallace around pit road with your truck's bumper then maybe his crew and the NASCAR officials wouldn't feel like they need to be on their guard.
