Racism at NASCAR (not what you think)

Racism at NASCAR (not what you think)

It’s a hoary old cliche that NASCAR is full of rednecks and bigots. Oh sure, there’s a few in there, but then you’ll find racists in any sport. Nevertheless, you’d think that NASCAR would want to distance itself from racists remarks at a conference it’s sponsoring, but that’s what they got:

“One thing I know, negroes can drive cars fast,” Jackson said to laughter. “I mean, we go through red lights, even [drive] at night with our lights off. We can drive cars fast,” he asserted from the podium.

That’s right, someone actually said that. Pretty soon there will be pickets and public denunciations and apologies and offerings to bribe Jesse Jackson to call off the protests… Oh wait, it was Jesse Jackson who said it. In that case, no big deal, right? After all, when a racist comment comes from a black person it’s one thing, but if it comes from a white person, then the world is ending.

  • Jesse Jackson is an idiot and a racist bigot.

    There is nothing new about that….this just confirms that he has no faith in his own people and that he is out for money, money, money.

    How much profit does he get from the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition?

  • I wish C-SPAN would play some of the audio tapes of the Civil Rights debates in the US Senate during the early 60’s…..I’d lie to hear some of Sen. Byrd’s speeches….over and over again………that paragon of constitutional diarrhea.

  • “One thing I know, negroes can drive cars fast,” Jackson said to laughter. “I mean, we go through red lights, even [drive] at night with our lights off. We can drive cars fast,” he asserted from the podium.

    Hmm.  Well, he is friends with such excellent, law-abiding drivers as Rodney King and the Swimming Senior Senator from the People’s Republic of Massachusetts.  Why should we be surprised at comments like this?

  • Hey, what about Jesse Jackson speaking/preaching at a church of the Archd. of Chicago? Has that got enough play yet?

    A great deal of discussion here on one incident – HIS EMINENCE CARDINAL FRANCIS EUGENE GEORGE, O.M.I.
    ARCHBISHOP OF CHICAGO so far has accomplished little, apparently, to rein in his seven auxilliary bishops, or to draw the priests back to orthodoxy.  Point man for the predominantly black Catholic parishes seems to be Most Reverend JOSEPH N. PERRY Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago.

    Apparently, this incident took place back in February before the NAACP embraced abortion on demand officially.

    [excerpt]

    ““The church is higher than government. The cross is higher than the flag,” proclaimed Kweisi Mfume, president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), to a full house at St. Sabina Catholic Church, Feb. 11.”

    [End excerpt]

    Prime focus was bashing Bush’s Faith-Based Initiative, totally inappropriate for any part of the Mass.

    Apparently, the Revrund Jesse Jackson was in the audience and could not (surprise, surprise) resist the chance to seize the microphone. The priest presiding over this circus welcomed Jackson with decidedly racist overtones, “You will not hang this man out to dry. We will not let you hang this man out to dry.”

  • The shakedown artist Jesse Jackson,spoke at a Catholic church in Chicago two weeks ago; this was reported by a Mr North,of talk radio sports on 670 AM on your dial. Amazing stuff.
