NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace just got busted by the FBI for criminal stupidity. His rush to throw the race card has his fellow drivers fearing for their safety. They’re wondering if he is too blind to see what’s around him, or just an idiot? The FBI confirms it’s one or the other.
Wallace facing integrity questions
Just because Bubba Wallace took advantage of the Black Lives Matter riots to get confederate flags unconstitutionally banned from Nascar events, he rushed to assume that the noose tied to his garage door was meant for him. Race drivers are supposed to notice details of their environment so they can whizz past them at high speed rather than into them. He never saw the noose that was hanging there long before his team was assigned to that garage.
Since Bubba is the only black driver on the whole circuit, it’s curious that nobody on his team noticed the hate symbol as they used it daily. It didn’t take the FBI long to confirm that “the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall.”
Still, Bubba’s “pissed.” While he didn’t try to hang it around his neck before he called the cops like Jussie Smollett, he’s angry at being called out for the false alarm he raised. “I’m mad because people are trying to test my character and the person that I am and my integrity.” Maybe it wasn’t meant specifically for Wallace but some redneck tied that noose and he doesn’t think it’s funny. “Whether tied in 2019, or whatever, it was a noose. So, it wasn’t directed at me, but somebody tied a noose.”
Not an intentional act
The Federal Bureau of Investigation spells out in their report that “photographic evidence confirms, that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall. This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment.”
Nascar officials breathed a heavy sigh of relief that it didn’t turn into a bigger scandal. “We appreciate the FBI’s quick and thorough investigation and are thankful to learn that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba.” Nascar fans may be a bunch of good ole boys from south of the masey-dixie line but the organizers of a multi-million-dollar revenue stream “remain steadfast in our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all who love racing.”
Since there wasn’t any crime, nobody will be charged with anything. After it turned out not to be the “act of racism and hatred” he made it out to be, Wallace was unapologetic for making a big fuss. “This will not break me, none of the allegations of being a hoax will break me or tear me down.”
