In recent weeks, it seems as if NASCAR has been bitten by the "wokeness" bug. First, it banned the Confederate flag from all of its events. Then, one of its drivers, Bubba Wallace, debuted a car emblazoned with the words "Black Lives Matter."
Fortunately, it looks like the wave of political correctness sweeping through NASCAR hasn't swept up every driver: Kyle Weatherman sported a car designed to show appreciation for the men and women in blue as he raced in Homestead, Florida, on June 13.
According to Newsmax, "His car was decked out with a 'Blue Lives Matter' flag across the hood and #BacktheBlue along the rear panels and back bumper."
This surely was a welcome sign to America's police officers, who have found themselves under siege in recent weeks.
Police have been public enemy No. 1 on the far left since the death of the unarmed African-American man George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody last month. Movements to "defund the police" have sprung up in America's cities, including New York City.
