<quoted text>Thanks! They need to do the same for Tiger. We know he's a GREAT golfer,but let him be an American golfer,not an African- American golfer regardless of what lineage he may have in his background. The media should be more responsible by helping unify the population instead of driving a wedge between the people of ALL races. Do I hear a second to that motion?
Makes complete sense to me because we are all Americans and we should all treat each other with respect.

If we could get Nascar to approve Cadilacs to race then we will approach Kentuckey Fried Chicken and Afro Sheen about sponsorship !!!

Actually a black man was one of the first to win Daytona hen it was dirt on the beach! Quit being so mean people. I've been going to NASCAR races since 1989, and since 2007 I have noticed and enjoyed seeing more and more African Americans at the races. Their descent black folks, not your thugs off the street.
Give credit where credit is do, their watching a white mans sport... We have watched them in Football, Basketball, and GOLF.Jut to name a few.
But in reality I really don't believe black men can sit or drive that fast for that long. Black men can't drive, like white men can't dance ...lol.
Beasy, you're full of crap. NO black driver has won Daytona on the beach or speedway. Only one black driver, Wendell Scott from Danville, Va. ever won a race sactioned by NASCAR at it's top level. It was a hundred miler and they took the win away from him after the fact. The fact of why there isn't any blacks in stockcar racing is easily understood. Young blacks don't have the financial means to develope their racing skills in any numbers. There's a basketball goal on every street in a neighborhood and organized teams starting in jR. High. The days of showing up anywhere to race with a car you ran whiskey in last night are long gone. Even the white kids coming up in racing have had extensive financial support from their parents from the time they were very young. As time goes by, you'll see more blacks in racing. Keep your eye out for a very attractive young black lady named Tia Norfleet. She already has won her NASCAR license.

It's a cultural (and economic means in the past) hurdle....like golf, the best 17 years from now are starting today at age 5.... It takes 10 plus years to develop talent with $ support and driver desire from family...

When we get a black NASCAR champion or just a winner NASCAR will be like golf, only time u hear anything about golf is if tiger is winning.

Wallace Jr is doing great. I expect to see him to be the first black winner at the cup level since Wendell Scott.
