“Your words and actions will always be held to a higher standard than others. You have to be prepared for that. Don’t learn these things in school. You learn them from trials and tribulations, the ups and downs this crazy world provides. You will always have people testing you. Seeing if they can knock you off your pedestal. I encourage you to keep your head held high and walk proudly on the path you have chosen.
Never let anybody tell you, you cannot do something! God put us all here for a reason. Find that reason and be proud of it and work your tails off every day towards it! All the haters are doing is elevating your voice and platform to much greater heights! The last thing, always deal with the hate being thrown at you with LOVE! Love over hate every day. Love should come naturally as people are taught to hate. Even when it’s HATE from the POTUS. Love wins.”
NASCAR also replied to Trump’ tweet in favor of Wallace:
“We are proud to have Bubba Wallace in the NASCAR family and we commend his courage and leadership. NASCAR continues to stand tall with Bubba, our competitors, and everyone who makes our sport welcoming and inclusive for all racing fans,” they said in a statement.

“Bubba has reacted in a truthful, professional, level headed, and positive manner. The NASCAR community and those in the know all stand by him.”

Jimmie Johnson has simply said:
Fellow driver Tyler Reddick also tweeted in response to Trump’s tweet and said:
“We do not need an apology. We did what was right and we will do fine without your support.” Reddick then removed his Tweet.
After all this incident, NASCAR involved the FBI to investigate this matter further. And the FBI did not find anything wrong or illegal and proved that rope had been tied as a noose for almost one year, and it was all just a misunderstanding.
The reaction of NASCAR;
NASCAR has shown exasperation after seeing this unevenness and racial discrimination in sports and the overall country. But Wallace at the end of all of this thanked his fellow to support him in any way.
