Nation shaken as Bubba Wallace hit by another totally-real racist incident
· May 23, 2023 ·

It seems like just yesterday that the country was shaken to its core after Bubba Wallace discovered a rope attached to his NASCAR garage door and declared it to be a racist noose and the FBI immediately came out to investigate.

Where were you when you learned of it? You'll never forget. The United States lost its innocence that day.

And now, on this day — this fateful day — we have lost our innocence once again:

OVER THE WEEKEND, the team radio channel for, Bubba Wallace, the only Black driver in NASCAR's top racing series, was apparently hijacked by someone who took the opportunity to tell Wallace he's "not wanted in NASCAR."

As reports, the incident occurred during the race Sunday, May 21, at the North Wilkesboro Speedway in North Carolina. Someone was apparently able to tap into the radio channel Wallace uses to communicate with his team, and could be heard saying, "Go back to where you came from a******. You're not wanted in NASCAR."

Why are we not flying flags at half-mast over this? Why haven't we closed schools? Why are we not in national mourning over this horrible incident of actual, totally-not-staged racism?

NASCAR, meanwhile, is "investigating the incident in an attempt to determine who accessed his radio channel and how."
