Fox News reports the mother of NASCAR’s only black driver called SiriusXM’s “The Joe Madison Show” to say her son, Bubba Wallace, has been racially discriminated against by other racing drivers.
“This is not his first incident,” Desiree Wallace said. “If he gets into it with another driver, they’re quick to bring out the N-word.”
“There were video cameras but there were not cameras where the noose was hung. See, everybody thinks there are cameras around there, they know who’s done it. Unfortunately it’s not that simple” she said, later adding: “It is an insider as far as NASCAR. I’m just praying that it’s not one of his team members …”
In an extraordinary act of solidarity with her son, dozens of drivers pushed the car belonging to Bubba Wallace to the front of the field before Monday’s race as FBI agents nearby tried to find out who left a noose in his garage stall over the weekend.
