Meanwhile, near the hometown of both of my parents - an African-American NASCAR driver finds a noose tied in his garage. NASCAR bans the "rebel flag" - prompting groups of people with very low tooth-per-head count to line the entryway to the race AND have a plane buzz the racecourse while towing a banner that reads, "DEFUND NASCAR".

In the article, we find that Confederate flags come to us from the same country that gave us MAGA hats, Trumpy Bears and a rather persistent malady.

African-American NASCAR drivers? Chinese made "rebel flags"? Defund NASCAR? The times! They really is-a-changin'!

The "noose" was a rope with a loop to close the garage door. And everything everybody went through...for nothing.

^ Hmmm. I hadn't read the recent details.

But the focus and point of my post was Chinese-made Confederate flags.

Point made and taken, brother.

Strange times indeed.


Rusty - 6/23/2020 at 10:17 PM

To be completely fair - I was wondering why no photographs of the "noose" have appeared in the news.
I'll also say that it did my heart good to see his fellow NASCAR drivers rally behind him when they thought he'd been a target of an act of hate. Strange days, indeed.

No noose is good noose

And this is some breaking noose! The networks are just now reporting!

Only you'd come up with that.

Rusty, I'd wager anything that a good percentage of those drivers, crew members and officials are giving this issue lip service. Look at the ethnic makeup of Nascar, you tell me there still isn't that good ol' boy network. They're like politicians, they say what they think we want to hear and all the while there's a hidden agenda. I'm not buying it.

"Dear NASCAR Baby Jesus this whole Bubba Wallace Noosegate story stinks worse than a bad catalytic converter."

- Jeff Rosen ... who I gather to be of of them NASCAR drivers? If you drive in a race ... that makes you a "racist"!

You're cooking solo and probably good at it.

You're a provolone.

I'm not sure where you think Confederate flags should be made. They haven't been made in the Confederacy for over 150 years. Nazi flags aren't made in Germany either.

Same place where Trumpy Bears and MAGA hats should be made. You know - AMURKA!
The "problem" is that most American companies have the decency to not make them anymore.

I bet China would not allow a US manufacturer to sell pre-revolution Nationalist Chinese Flags in China. So we are better.
