NASCAR Bans Confederate Flag After Bubba Wallace Speaks Out

As all major sporting companies continue to come out with statements to show solidarity with Black Lives Matter and in support of racial injustice, one sport man thought would never change, NASCAR has announced they will now be banning Confederate flags. The announcement came after Bubba Wallace Jr., the only full-time black driver on the NASCAR Cup circuit, spoke out and confronted the use of the Confederate flag in motor sports. Wallace will be running an all-black vehicle specially outfitted with a #BlackLivesMattehashtag emblazoned on the car’s quarter panel for Wednesday’s race in Martinsville, Virginia. An image of a black and white hand clasping in solidarity is featured on the car’s hood.
