Concern for racial justice and freedom from the scourge of racism is breaking out all over. Even NASCAR drivers and crews are standing for racial healing on their race track!
A noose was found on Sunday in the garage stall of NASCAR’S only full-time Black drive, Bubba Wallace. Today on the Talladega, Alabama track, NASCAR drivers boldly stood and marched in solidarity with Bubba! Before the race, the hashtag, #IStandWithBubba, was painted on the infield grass and is trending on social media. (It’s been reported that the noose was on the end of a rope for opening the garage door and probably wasn’t put there as a hate crime.)
I wrote a book about practical ways to stand with Bubba. It’s called: Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind to Color-Kind and is available at this link.
