NASCAR Speaks Out Against North Carolina Anti-LGBT Law HB2: “REPEAL IT!”

NASCAR Speaks Out Against NC anti-gay hate law

 

Sheesh, North Carolina when you’ve lost NASCAR……

From the Raleigh News & Observer:

As opposition to North Carolina’s House Bill 2 grows, NASCAR has joined the chorus of companies calling for the law to be overturned. According to Motorsport.com, a site that covers racing news, NASCAR Chairman Brian France made the announcement at a meeting this week with Associated Press sports editors.

Jim Utter, a longtime NASCAR writer, reported that France said NASCAR also opposed a similarly controversial law in Indiana that has since been modified. “We take the position that any discrimination, unintended or not, we do not like that and we are working behind the scenes, and we are not a political institution,” France said.

“We don’t set agendas or write laws, but we express our values to policy makers. We will and we do. We are real clear about that.”

That’s not gonna sit well with the duck people and the over-populated Duggar Klan

    1. Also, the law limits how people pursue claims of discrimination because of race, religion, color, national origin, biological sex or handicap in state courts. And it stops cities in NC from enacting a higher minimum wage law for their own jurisdictions. It’s about a lot more than bathrooms and transGENDER people.

  1. I’m impressed & surprised at NASCAR’s position on this when so many followers of NASCAR would not feel or voice the same. I deliberately did not use the term RedNeck because it’s like fag & nigger; a degrading term.

    1. David, your comment would have been perfect had you ended it with just the first sentence. The second one was not needed as it pretty much negated the positive feelings in the first one.

What do you think?
