Fair enough. I've heard compelling arguments from both sides. I don't like the word in any context.

You are, thankfully, part of NASCAR's past. Don't let the door hit you......
Thats a pretty bigoted and ignorant thing to say , given the fact that you dont know anything about me... what color or race I , my wife, some of my kids or the rest of my family are.
First of all its a word ! A word that is used all the time by blacks and is just fine and dandy but when whites use it gasp! It is horrific... please that in itself is racist.

Technically, I guess we can add Daniel Suarez.. He lost Subway when he was giving out Dunkin' Donuts at a race.. But let's be honest.. That was an excuse.



Hell, Miller Lite didn't even drop Kurt Busch back when he had the DUI arrest.. And they'd have been well within their rights to do it.


Kyle got 'suspended' by M&M's for two races when he wrecked Hornaday.. Home Depot 'fined' Tony Stewart for going off on.. One of the pit reporters.
Yes all for the most part, on track incidents. My point was the ridiculous political correctness and double standard that is becoming so prevalant. These guys have to now watch every little word they say and every post they make on social media as to make sure some little snowflake doesnt get his feelings hurt. Like I said they have a right to do what they want and people such as myself have a right not to watch.

A black Japanese.. Sorry, that just jumped out at me.. I don't think I have ever seen that. Made me chuckle.

I tell you.. And i'm sidetracking.. You want to see some racist people.. Koreans. Holy crap. And I'm not talking about against black people exclusively, though it's there. Now, there's reasons behind this, but Koreans are highly racist against the Japanese. Goes back to WWII. Koreans were pretty abused by the Japanese then, so in that vein, it's understandable. But.. Damn. They hold a grudge. I mean, you want the definition of racism.. Look to that.

i am not talking about who is racist i am talking about people in those countries want to see their people and will support theor people. people in all countries in F1 CIRCUIT will never promote black over their own country man and that is reasonable. i just hope that these liberty media does not start to **** with F1 with diversity b.s. people that want to race will race no need to elavate one over another that will be turn off in most of the world maybe it is feel good story in maerica but in rest of the worlsd is annoyance

Well, as I mentioned, I was sidetracking on it, but.. To your point specifically.. If there WERE such a thing as a Black Japanese F1 driver.. I would hope that Japan would promote him the same as any other Japanese driver.


Would that happen? No idea.. Again.. I can't stop chucking at the thought of a Black Japanese.

You make a common error. The Japanese are not a race. The Koreans are bigoted towards the Japanese.

It gets.. Iffy in that area. I won't disagree with you.. Japanese and Korean would both be considered Asian.. and Asian is a race. Sometimes called 'oriental'


But.. Southeast Asia.. Are they still considered Asian? you get into some areas there where things change so quickly. Are Singapore-ians (Probably wrong term) still considered Asian? Phillippeans?
