On the subject of slavery in my country I sometimes think of the hurt and pain inflicted on my fellow man...surely one of those hurts must be is the separation from a child or loved one to never see them again or never learn of their whereabouts...or what happened to them

And WTF, exactly, does that have to do with the Conferderate flag, the subject of this topic.....and/or a practice that was outlawed in the US in 1865....155 years ago.

BOZO are you living in a cave?  NASCAR made it an issue when they banned a flag suddenly after how many years of ignoring it?  Geo Floyd's death was a tragedy no question by a defective human who happened to be a cop. The flag means something different to many points of view and suddenly eracing history and the culture it may or may not define shouldn't be injected  into racing but THEY chose this course to follow. What's next? The Ameican flag? In a country founded by slave owners?  Many blacks take that flag as a symbol of something they have conquored by their own perserverance.  Good for them. others (from the south mostly) see as source of pride in their heritage and a link to their past. My own view is people from the north are not the ones that should be making policy on it.  Wiping out flags, statues, movies and stories of our past doesn't change a GD thing.  it soothes the feelings of those that feel guilt 150 years and counting.

Bubba in the #43 is all about the money, it ain't about his driving ability.

Kinda' like Danica, in the #10?

IMHO, My biggest issue with the current mentality regarding almost anything in this country is that people are being told WHAT to think instead of learning HOW to think--they are also trading their freedom(s) in exchange for their government's idea of safety which has affected nearly every aspect of our lives; including racing!  I hope those who favor a socialist form of government enjoyed their first taste of it!  The sour "aftertaste" won't be so great...

I agree 100%.

The only problem is, once the Government takes something away from you, you play hell trying to get it back, if you ever do manage to get it back. Yes, the "Kung flu" did present a danger to the general public, but look at how willing people were, to give up their freedoms, under the guise of "public safety", using guidelines put out by people who were simply "throwing spaghetti at the wall", if you know what I mean.

God forbid, the liberals get a stranglehold on the Government in the next couple of elections, as this country, as we knew it, loved it, and fought for it, will drastically change forever,.....AND it won't be for the better, you can bet on it.

Using the process of painting as an analogy, Obama, with his phrase "we're going to fundamentally change America", was the primer, and Hillary was supposed to apply the finish coats. Trump interfered, and that's why the left hates him so much. He delayed their plans to "sell out" America for their own benefit, leaving us to be their slaves.....

My thing with the whole thing is how does banning the flag really help i think now they are making the people who are quiet and never voice their opinion mad.  WHATS NEXT if your Brazilian or French or another ethnicity who's to say you your flag doesn't offend someone  are they gonna ban them dare? Dare I say it and I mean no disrespect just point I am trying to get across but what if you were Jewish and complained about a German flag flying at a racetrack pretty sure nascar would say well thats to bad where is enough enough..
