Two NASCAR Drivers Express Support for Black Lives Matter

Two NASCAR drivers separately expressed their support for the ongoing nationwide protests by Black Lives Matter, as reported by CNN.

The first was Darrell “Bubba” Wallace, who on Sunday wore a “Black Lives Matter” T-shirt during NASCAR’s Cup Series. He later tweeted a video of him and other NASCAR drivers discussing how to end alleged “racism” in America, with the caption “We will listen and learn! #BlackLivesMatters”

Another NASCAR driver, Jeff Gordon, spoke on TV in support of Wallace’s statements on Sunday, saying “I’ll never know what it’s like to walk in Bubba’s shoes or the shoes of anyone that’s experienced racism…We need to step up now more than we ever have in the past. We are listening, we are learning, we are ready for change.”

Their statements mark two of the latest celebrity endorsements of the ongoing protests, which have frequently led to riots and widespread acts of violence in several major American cities.
