When NASCAR announced that it would be banning the flying of the Confederate flag at races, one little-known driver decided that this season would be his last.  Ray Ciccarelli, a part-time driver of the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, spoke out against NASCAR's decision in a Facebook post on Wednesday, saying he wouldn't return after the 2020 racing season is over, citing the company's decision to ban the Confederate flag.
No loss at all to NASCAR, truck racing, or society in general.

Likely nothing that I could post here without violating the rules against profanity, bigotry, and inflammatory speech.

Ahh ... I thought I recognized him!  He did another satirical rant about FEMA trailers, black ops, and Walmart (if I remember correctly).  Good stuff!

Who cares? Klantypes will whine as society expresses their distaste for them, but as long as they hold those beliefs civilized people probably shouldn't associate with them.

Southern pride. NASCAR has a connection with Southern America, explaining the presence of the flag.

The Lost Cause lie has left a lot of minds brainwashed lost causes unwilling to admit that their flag represents treachery and an attempt to use violence to maintain a system of slavery. It's a shame because a lot of southerners are decent people but anyone who pukes up lost cause bullshit isn't someone I'd interact with a second time.
