so we won’t be comparing bubba wallace to jussie smollett after all

the bubba wallace/noose incident has reached a conclusion.
as you know ( x from the last entry ),
bubba said he found a noose hanging in his car stall.
it seemed like it was a misunderstanding.
this is what “usa today” had to report from the fbi…

Following an investigation, the FBI concluded that the noose found in Bubba Wallace’s No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday was not a federal crime, the U.S. attorney and FBI announced Tuesday afternoon.

“On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway,” the joint statement from U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp, Jr. “After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed.

“The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.

The decision not to pursue federal charges is proper after reviewing all available facts and all applicable federal laws. We offer our thanks to NASCAR, Mr. Wallace, and everyone who cooperated with this investigation.”

folks on social media were foaming at the mouth for another “jussie smollett” scandal,
but i’m glad this didn’t turn out to be more than what it was.
we already have a lot of racism shit we are being force-fed on our plates.
i’m about full.

lowkey: i saw a tweet saying if jussie’s scandal happened now,
it would have been better for him.

  1. Prime example of people making things racial where when they don’t need to be. The molly from insecure syndrome. Everything is not about race. This would have been raciest had they actually had someone white to blame lol.

    1. That’s such an ignorant response. It was a noose, who the hell has nooses just hanging around in garages. And even if there wasn’t a racial tenet to it why would the black man even be assigned to that garage without no one having gone into it over the course of the last six months?! Use your brain cells instead of trying to act like racism doesn’t exist sweetie.

      1. Your ignorant, it is a garage door pull down used on many garage doors at the track. There was no need to comb the garage, they are common there. She did not say racism doesn’t exist, it does, but you won’t admit that there are many false racist attacks and they need to be pointed out also !!!!

        1. If this knot or noose is so common I’m baffled why the President of NASCAR felt compelled to call Bubba and meet with him in person Sunday evening to tell him about the noose.I find it hard to believe that after the crew member reported it nobody from NASCAR walked to the garage to look at the object,took a picture,etc.before contacting the President,before contacting the police,FBI,etc.

          Bubba never saw the noose but NASCAR officials did so if it’s so common, in every other garage, why was there a tearful conversation,an investigation,press release,etc.That makes absolutely no sense to me.

        2. Sweetie learn to read before you get yourself hurt. I don’t what you backwoods people do I’m from an urban area, from what I saw it was a noose. And that’s not what he you dum dum, he said “everything isn’t about race” my response was let’s not act like racism doesn’t exist..because surprise it exists in everything that we do in life consciously as well as unconsciously.

      2. theres actually a photo from November of the same exact stall, in use by a white driver with the “noose” hanging on the side.

        That same knot is hanging in all the other stalls as well used for the door.

        Bubba didn’t see the noose to report it. Some guy with no idea/familiarity of the situation was obviously confused and let it be known.

        1. Please stop responding to @codys anything thing that is not in favor of black people. He hops on the bandwagon.

          Secondly, no matter where it was found why is a noose in someone’s possession anyway.

          1. “Everything’s not about race” tell that to the racist white people. We aren’t the catalyst for the division between races. In these current times whites can’t be trusted. NASCAR is the only sport that blacks haven’t dominated, so the fact that they are shining light on BLM and taking down the confederate flag is infuriating the Karen’s and billy bobs. @codys anytime jamari post something race related, you literally can’t wait to talk down on blacks. Anytime blatant mistreatment of blacks is displayed on this blog you’re silent. You’re either a self loathing coon or a racist.

  2. It’s just sad, because of that attention whore aka Jussie Smollett…any case involving a black man with a noose, brings Juicy back in the spotlight.
    Then the victim story is questioned more for lies 1st, then the truth later.

  3. Bubba did not see the noose nor did he report the noose.The president of NASCAR called him told him he needed to speak to him in person.Came to his motor home in tears and told him that a hate crime was suspected and told him a noose was found in the garage.So IDK why people would think Bubba did something wrong.

    And like he said tonight in interview with Don Lemon, the fact remains somebody felt comfortable enough to put a noose on the garage door.It was not just a knot on a rope,it was a noose.He said he had been in hundreds of garages and has never seen a noose.He also asked his crew and they have never seen a garage door rope tied like that.

    So they need to investigate who tied the noose and was it a coincidence that the only black driver was assigned to that garage.After doing interviews saying NASCAR shouldn’t allow Confederate flags and driving a car with Black Lives Matter on it.

    Coincidence?

    1. He still went on a media tour promoting that narrative storyline and without even waiting for a full investigation to be done. That’s a prime example of our people doing that. Jumping the gun and quick to accuse without knowing the true facts. Everything is not, I repeat is not about race. Let it go. He was accusing someone of being racist when in fact it was a garage pull handle. That wasn’t even remotely related to him. Fishing. Cmon and just take the L. A Big L.

      1. He was told a noose was found by the President of Nascar. What other investigation is needed? He also NEVER saw it nor did he report it. Facts only! So he was supposed to ignore all reporter questions about something the President of Nascar told him about? Make that make sense!

      2. The president of NASCAR( a corporation) should not have come to his home and told him about the noose without doing a primary investigation or at least asking seasoned drivers/crew about the situation.NASCAR jumped the gun before he did.They released the statement,they could have told him not to go public until they investigated.

        If the President of the corporation I work for comes to my house,literally crying, saying I was a victim of a hate crime and that they are going to find out who was responsible.I am going to take it seriously especially if my dad just warned me to watch my back because of my stance on the Confederate flag.

        So yes in the environment we are in now with these racists acting a fool over their statues and flags I would also think I was the target.I would also let it be known a hate crime nor threats or racist slurs will silence me.

        Lastly find it interesting that some people are faulting his reaction but not saying anything about NASCAR jumping the gun.

        1. Thank you for all of this. It’s so sad how
          1. We don’t believe victims: so many in this comment section are like “looks like another jussie situation”. Not even looking at the facts of the situation. I am calling bubba a victim because he had every reason to believe he was.
          2. We expect victims to stay silent: this was a national spotlighted situation. Nascar is huge, largely believed to be popular among racists white folks, bubba is the only black driver, and the current racial unrest in our country led to national interest in this story. Bubba wasnt looking for interviews, interviewers were looking for him. Of course he is and should speak about the situation.

          Ps. Things don’t add up. People keep saying the “noose” in question is a rope that every garage has. If this is true, then way did it take an FBI investigation to discover this. There has to be more to this story. Why wouldnt the person who discovered the rope not know how common it is or anyone else that saw the rope.

  4. I can see if Jussie messed up his music career, you can still show your face. How do you screw yourself out of both careers? He will forever be known as “the fool”.

    Bubba, I’m more happy he has full support of NASCAR and the drivers. Colin had people supporting him but the league turned their back on him and still has not said anything. Even happier he is driving for one of my favorite teams. Loved Earnhardt, Busch, Petty, and a few others.

  5. “Misunderstanding?” That’s insulting!

    That noose is traumatizing to many black people in this country and Bubba used it to play on our emotions. And for that he’ll forever be BUBBA SMOLLETT 2.0 to me and millions of others. And everyone else in world will see him as a race baiting fraud even if they’re afraid to say it out loud. He took advantage of the current climate to incite racism while advancing himself. Black men are dead by the hands of police and this asshole decided to fan the flames with nonsense. He needs to apologize to everyone he and the media vaguely accused. Fuck Bubba!

  6. I’m glad it worked itself out. Also, he was not the one who found the alleged “noose.” I thought it was someone of the crew who found it, so it did not specifically come from him anyway. I knew this was not a Jussie situation because no one else would be that stupid. Lets just be honest here lol.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
