Bubba Wallace Will Pay Homage To The Black Live Matters Movement During Martinsville Speedway Race

African American Nascar driver Bubba Wallace has brought the Black Lives Matter Movement to the race track. Wallace has spoken up about the issue that many people of color face each and every day, as well as talked about the possibility of abolishing the confederate flag at races. “No one should feel uncomfortable when they come to a NASCAR race,” Wallace told CNN on Monday. “So it starts with Confederate flags. Get them out of here.”

Last Sunday, an official by the name Kirk Price took a knee while the National Anthem was playing. A lot of the drivers, as well the nation have spoken up about the change in America, as well as trying to figure out different ways to bring more awareness about diversity and change in the culture of society. Wallace has decided that he was not only going to speak about the Black Lives Matter Movement but will honor them by having the Black Lives Matter logo on his car as well as a black and white hand shaking hands. “We needed something that showed unity and coming together,” Wallace said. “The graphic that we went with of a black hand and a white hand shaking hands, basically of being united as one, I think that was pretty powerful.”
