(FreedomJournal.org)- NASCAR racer Bubba Wallace, the only full-time black racer in NASCAR, publicly called for the end of the use of confederate flags during NASCAR races.
The flags are a common fixture at NASCAR tracks because it is frequented and loved by millions of Americans from the South. But during a recent interview with CNN, Wallace said that the flags made him feel uncomfortable. He wore a tee shirt that said “I can’t breathe” and “Black Lives Matter,” signaling his allegiance to far-left ideologues and rioters who have taken to the streets in what they claim is an effort to obtain justice for George Floyd.

“My next step would be to get rid of all Confederate flags,” he told the far-left propaganda news network. “No one should feel uncomfortable when they come to a NASCAR race. So it starts with Confederate flags. Get them out of here. They have no place for them.”
The war against the Confederate flag has been going on for decades, but only in recent years has it begun to gather steam. Increasingly the flag is considered a symbol of slavery by young people who are taught that in schools, in popular culture, and by the media.
Wallace did recognize during the interview, however, that his demand may not necessarily be met. People in the NASCAR world think differently to him.
“There’s going to be a lot of angry people that carry those flags proudly but it’s time for change,” he explained. “We have to change that, and I encourage NASCAR – we will have those conversations to remove those flags.”
Wallace suggested that he may use his influence as a popular NASCAR racer to get the flags removed, but NASCAR may be more reluctant to kowtow to the demands of ideologues than other businesses. When much of the NASCAR audience supports the use of the flag, it likely won’t be as cut and clear as with brands like Nike.
