    NASCAR Bans Confederate Flag

    NASCAR has banned the Confederate battle flag at all of its events and properties.

    In a Wednesday tweet, the stock car racing organization said the presence of the flag "runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and industry."
    "Bringing people together around the love of racing and the community that it creates is what makes our fans and sports special," the statement said.

    This seems like another insult to Trump and his supporters.

    Trump loses on Black Lives Matter, Kneeling and now NASCAR........ 38% approval rating might go down.

    ..........But now, in the wake of a national movement, both organizations are promising to stand up for racial justice in a way that could challenge the president’s relationship with them. Instead of allies, the leagues may become yet another Trump attack target.

    Goodell this week said he, and the league, were wrong. The NFL, he said, “believes black lives matter.”

    NASCAR President Steve Phelps said the sport must “do better” addressing racial injustice.

    As part of that, NASCAR issued a statement banning the Confederate flag from all events, just hours before Bubba Wallace, NASCAR’s only top-tier black driver, made laps in a race car painted with “Black Lives Matter.”

    “The presence of the Confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry,” the association said in a statement.

        Well if it is owned by Nascar, then they can ban whatever they want on their properties. However, the properties that are right next to them only separated by a blade of grass, will I'm sure still have the flags flying.

        They will get my respect when they ban alcohol from their sponsors like they did with tobacco.
