FBI Says Bubba Wallace Was Not Target of a Federal Hate Crime
June 24, 2020
Bubba Wallace is speaking out in media interviews following the FBI's determination that there was no hate crime committed after a noose was found hanging in Wallace's garage. “Whether tied in 2019 or whatever, it was a noose,” Wallace, one of only a handful of Black drivers in NASCAR history, said on CNN. The FBI said the noose hanging in Wallace's garage at Talladega Speedway was actually a garage pull that had been there for months, and Wallace was "not the target of a hate crime."
