It’s disheartening at times being so cynical of my fellow men; such as actors, politicians, activists, etc. Now I have to add NASCAR drivers to my list.

When I first heard Sunday that Bubba Wallace found a hangman’s noose in his garage at Talladega Raceway in Alabama, I couldn’t believe it. I know NASCAR fans and have mingled amongst them many times at tracks in Daytona, Charlotte, Fort Worth and here at Kansas for nearly three decades.

Leftist groups and the Lame Stream Media constantly denigrating NASCAR fans and painting them as a bunch of low-IQ, racist heathens. It’s a totally false narrative and Confederate flags don’t mean that to any NASCAR fans, unless you can find one who is 175 years old and still bitter about losing.

Anyway, my second thought was, “I wonder if Bubba or one of his crew planted the noose?” 

Stay with me here. 

I was aware Bubba was getting a lot of push back for his insecure contempt for the Confederate flag and his success in getting “any” of those flags barred from all NASCAR events, even the small decals that teenage “rebels” want to buy from the souvenir stands outside.

No, not Confederate rebel soldiers, but rebels like James Dean. Today’s kids don’t even know what a “rebel” is – they’re not taught any American history at all.

But seems like my cynicism was right on track (Heh. Heh.), because it’s now Bubba “Smollett” Wallace or Bubba, “The Jussie” or my choice – Bubba-Jussie. And, look how he is struggling with the truth by lying to us all when whining, “It was a noose. I tell you it was a noose.”


Are you calling those 15 FBI agents who swooped into Talladega like they had discovered a group of Jihadists planning on bombing Nancy Pelosi’s mansion in San Fransisco liars, Mr. Bubba-Jussie? The FBI said it was not a noose, but a garage door pull down chord or rope. Bottom line, FBI declared there was no hate crime whatsoever.

They got pictures and video that show it was in that same garage in October of 2019. Who knew? 

Bubba-Jussie didn’t know. 

And he didn’t discover it. According to all reports, one of his crew found it and called NASCAR officials, who set their hair on fire and quickly denigrated all NASCAR crews and fans with prostrating announcements of “White guilt” and condemnation of millions of people while they kneeled and kowtowed to the Black Lives Matter political action movement.

That was another reason I believed Bubba-Jussie and his people pulled this scam. It was to take the heat off him for painting his car with Black Lives Matter.

He has every right to do that, but every American in this country also has a right to push back on his support of a radical, anti-American, terrorist group, too. Fighting back doesn’t mean putting nooses in a Black man’s garage, and the FBI proved that is not what happened. His “privileged” confusion between fighting against police brutality and supporting BLM doesn’t mix. 

All of us despise police brutality. But only a few support a group that openly posts, “Kill Whitey,” and marches while chanting; “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now,” or “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.” 

And now you are considered a racist if you point out the rioting, looting and arson that BLM has supported.

Now, Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King has called for the destruction of Jesus Christ statues and Christian churches for their depiction of the “white” holy family, which King argued are forms of “white supremacy” and “racist propaganda” that promote “oppression.”

Anybody that supports that crap Bubba-Jussie, gets no support – or respect – from me or tens of millions of others in this country. And it doesn’t matter if you are Black, mulit-racial, White, Brown, Yellow, Red, Pink or Orange, or, like Bubba-Jussie, an entitled millionaire. 

Tearing down churches doesn’t fly in this country.

When NASCAR and the media mob was looking to lynch some redneck “racist” after the “noose” news broke, Bubba-Jussie referred to the incident on Twitter as a “despicable act of racism and hatred.” He also spoke of his Black mother and how she believed people were trying to scare her son into silence. 

“As my mother told me today, ‘They are just trying to scare you.’ This will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in,” Bubba-Jussie was quoted as saying.

We, too, want to know what you believe in: Is it justice and equality? Fine, but you can’t equate those while backing BLM and its anarchy. Period. And that’s what Bubba-Jussie needs to decide, maybe after he grows up. 

He’s 26, and if he hates Whites so much, how did he put up with Whites sponsoring his race cars most of his life? His father is White.

He’s jumped into the same abyss as Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, 24 – another oppressed millionaire who openly said America is “a country of systemic racism.” What more can these kids come up with? They both are products of multi-racial families and could have been symbols of how we are coming together rather than encouraging hateful divisions. 

It’s sickening, and they better be ready to play hardball if they want to dive into the real world by advocating for destroying White churches. If they think they can malign and desecrate this country’s traditions and its exceptionalism, they better develop thick skins – ’cause criticism is gettin’ ready to pour down upon these poor, oppressed millionaires.

Money can’t buy respect. 

Ask Lebron.
