Lebron James, the Lakers.
On Wednesday night in Martinsville, Virginia Speedway, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace drives his car, which has been redesigned to reflect the unique and exciting moment of the day in the United States – he celebrates his 43rd birthday. It is decorated with slogans and symbols from Black Live’s Matter, including a white hand and a black handle.
Lakers star Lebron James was among those who tweeted his approval of the design of the car, Wallace said: BIG S/ ! …on Twitter, with black and white palms jumping with their fists.
BIG N/A @BubbaWallace! https://t.co/0zIlidbQOi.

Wallace is the only black NASCAR runner running full time. As he wrote in 2017 at the top of his Twitter page: At the highest level of our sport, only an African-American pilot… Я – 1. You’ll hear about the black driver for years to come. Take it, take it and enjoy the ride.
It’s been an eventful week for Wallace. Yesterday, Wallace asked NASCAR to ensure that all Confederate flag paraphernalia are removed from their demonstrations. On Sunday in Atlanta, Wallace fainted in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 during a post-race interview. He called the incident an early warning.
Lebron James actively supports social issues
James, who has long spoken openly about social issues, has been particularly active in recent weeks and months as racial tensions have turned to protests, especially after the death of George Floyd two weeks ago in Minneapolis.
On Tuesday, he responded to information about voting problems in Georgia, including a message from a black woman who had waited three hours for the vote while white people walked in the nearby white neighborhood.
James asked on Twitter: Is everyone talking about how we can solve this? Do they say they’re going to vote? What about whether our way of voting is also structurally racist?

Lebron James fought last week against a known enemy,.
Just six days ago James had another surprise with Fox News anchor Laura Ingram.
This came after James reacted strongly to the quarterback of the Saints Drew Bree last week when Brice takes on the NFL-players and kneels for the national anthem. Later, Bris apologized for his remarks.
James tweeted in response to what Bree said: Is it still surprising? Of course not! You still don’t understand why (Colin Kepernick) was kneeling on the same knee?
James was released on Thursday, this time by Fox News anchor Laura Ingram, an old arch-enemy. Ingram defended Bree’s right to her own opinion.
In a speech about their show, Ingram said he might have his own idea of what it means to him to get down on his knees and see the flag.
That was the last straw for James. In 2018, when James made public remarks about President Donald Trump’s speech for a few days, Ingram said in his show, in a familiar way, Shut up and drool.
James was writing:
If you still haven’t figured out why there’s a protest. Why are we behaving like this? Because we’re just F-H tired of this treatment! Can we do something easier for you than that?
He went on to say: And don’t worry about my people, I won’t stop until I see the connection! #ShutUpAndDribbleThisPowerfulBlackManComingFullSteam#
If you still haven’t figured out why there’s a protest. Why are we behaving like this? Because we’re just F-H tired of this treatment! Can we do something easier for you than that? ♂️. And my people don’t worry, I won’t stop until I see https://t.co/e4pJ0PvwJj.
