N.C. speedway loses partnerships after ‘Bubba rope’ post

The Political Agitator’s response: It is a damn shame that folk don’t see a problem with this being a hangmans noose. So why was this hangmans noose in the stall anyway? For me that means that it was there simply because it was there for somebody to laugh and joke about because that is what they think about Bubba. Just my ignant opinion.

PINE HALL (AP) — A North Carolina racetrack has lost some partnerships after its owner advertised “Bubba Rope” for sale online days after NASCAR said a noose had been found in the garage stall of Bubba Wallace, the top series’ only Black driver.

A concrete company and a driver series ended their partnerships Friday with the half-mile, dirt track 311 Speedway in Stokes County, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.

The racetrack owner’s “Bubba Rope” post on Facebook Marketplace earlier this week sparked a backlash on social media and a condemnation from a spokesman for Gov. Roy Cooper.

“Buy your Bubba Rope today for only $9.99 each, they come with a lifetime warranty and work great,” the post said.

The Carolina Sprint Tour posted on its Facebook page that it would not race at the speedway for the remainder of its season, according to the newspaper.

“We do not condone nor support the comments and posts that have been made the past week,” the series said in a post online. (Read more)

NASCAR: Noose found in Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega

imageTALLADEGA, ALA. — NASCAR officials have launched an immediate investigation to determine why a noose was in Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday.

“We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough how seriously we take this heinous act. We have launched an immediate investigation, and will do everything we can to identify the person(s) responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism in NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all,” NASCAR said in a statement.

Wallace, who is black, was outspoken in his wishes for NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag at races, which NASCAR eventually did on June 10. (Read more)

Note: This does not surprise me because there are so many folks who can not accept having a black POTUS and bringing it closer to home a black coach at the college. It is so sad that this is the mentality of many folks who can’t handle change. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher
