Default It rarely is a good idea to insult your customers

but Bubba Wallace will try anyway:

Maybe they can use cardboard cutouts of People Of Color to adorn the empty stands, while they let Bubba have an extra 20 gallons of fuel and 50 more HP and automatic pole position every single race forever and ever.

Wallace, 26 years old and the only active Black driver in the NASCAR Cup Series, has been an outspoken figure in recent weeks. Following Floyd's death, he painted his No. 43 car black and displayed the phrases "Black Lives Matter" and "Compassion, love and understanding."
Aren't those terms mutually exclusive? Asking for the non-simple minded people...

I couldn't see the video because it said I had to register, and I'm not doing that shit.

Besides, why would I get in a bunch about a guy calling me "simple-minded" when he can't figure out that you pull on the "noose" to close the door to the garage.

Not I. Nor do I spend my simple mindedly earned dollars at any of their sponsors either. And Bubba almost certainly didn't paint his car black for free either.

I don't think Bubba painted his car black. I bet Petty enterprises did that.

Petty turned out to be quite the asshole.
