Tell NASCAR: Remove ALL confederate flags from your events
Get rid of confederate flags at your race tracks.
Why is this important?
"No one should feel uncomfortable when they come to a NASCAR race. It starts with confederate flags," Bubba Wallace, the only Black driver in NASCAR, said. "Get them out of here. They have no place for them."
In the wake of George Floyd's murder, there's a renewed effort to rid public spaces of racist symbols like the confederate flag. It's time for NASCAR to stop looking the other way on a symbol that makes Black people and those who don't support white supremacy deeply unwelcome and uncomfortable visiting its race tracks.
NASCAR's majority white fan base is exactly where a conversation on racism and white supremacy needs to happen. By opposing the confederate flag, NASCAR's CEO Jim France can show that NASCAR stands on the right side of history.
