When Bubba Wallace began speaking up as a person of color, it set in motion the greatest paradigm shift in a sport that has received years of flak for being predominantly white and predominantly male.

Well Karen, if you weren't boasting about wanting to drag Wallace around pit road with your truck's bumper then maybe his crew and the NASCAR officials wouldn't feel like they need to be on their guard.
