I'm getting twitter spammed by some guy ranting on about how racist NASCAR/IndyCar, etc are.

He's then making weird threats at everyone associated with the sport...It's bizarre.

Here's his page. Any advice on how to decipher it?

Our Mission

"It is the mission of MYMM (Minority Youth Matters Movement) to enlighten the American public, the corporate sponsors, NASCAR teams, and owners on the disproportion of sponsorship dollars dedicated to minority NASCAR teams, employment, educational programs and opportunities to race in all series. MYMM is dedicated to finding a respectful balance between sponsors, teams, and owners so that all minority youth and communities worldwide can engage in NASCAR. "

He comes off weird and very obsessive but the idea isn't farfetched. Except I find it funny he supports Donald Trump

e: In simple terms, he's hellbent for NASCAR to do more than Drive for Diversity.

I have a great deal of empathy towards his cause, I just don't understand his way of doing it?

Auto racing as a whole does have some problems in getting more minorities, women and LGBT people involved. It's not exactly the most friendly environment for those drivers quite yet.

NASCAR is actually a head of the curve in some respects as they actually do have a program for it. The same cannot be said, for IndyCar, etc

this is one of those non issues because there's really not many minorities that give a gently caress

It'd be nice if that could change. But I think you could very much be right.

Though to be fair? I think it's not impossible to have more minorities involved in racing. I think NASCAR has seen some significant growth amongst hispanic populations due to the Toyota Series, etc.

All the minorities play real sports. NASCAR is the whitest sport there is. You gotta balance it out.

It's cost.

That sucks to say, but it's cost.

It's very cheap to pick up basketball, baseball, football, soccer and (to an extent) hockey. I can find a football for 8 bucks online.

The cost it takes up to want to be involved in auto racing is pretty high. Not to mention you have to be involved it in early and every piece has to fall perfectly your way to do it. Like Sage Karem is the son of a wrestling coach. You think he's in and out of IndyCar right now if he didn't live in Nazareth, and his dad DIDN'T know the Andrettis? Nope. He's likely wrestling for some D III college right now studying exercise science.

Your defending winner of the Daytona 500 came from an insanely rich family, not to mention our resident goon driving expert.

The only thing I can think of to bridge the gap would be if NASCAR were to fund some sort of "Drive for diversity" campaign in regards to finding future engineers, mechanics, pit crew and members of NASCAR officiating. I imagine you could find quite a few bright people for those positions and perhaps inspire them via taking them to races, etc

in a couple decades that's irrelevant too because at that point NASCAR will be a sport played by minorities

To be fair the D4D places good minority drivers with Rev Racing which is a fate worse than hell.

Dumbass question.

Anyone ever bought a NASCAR themed coat before? I need a new coat and since a certain other nameless series doesn't make them? Thought I'd go with Jr.

I need something kinda padded to keep me warm in the winter and I was wondering if this would protect me worth a drat.

Any SASCAR goons wear anything like this?

I bought a Gordon one on clearance (steeply discounted) about 10 years ago. It's bulky, but it looks cool.

I'm in the market for that. Basically just something to keep me warm. I had a browns jacket, but sadly the thing is falling apart.
