It seems like for the past week, most eyes in the country have been on a courtroom in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

It was Judge Bruce Schroeder’s courtroom where the jury was deliberating on the case of Kyle Rittenhouse, the then-17 year old who was charged with murder after killing two men and injuring another during last summer’s riots in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Rittenhouse claimed that he was acting in self defense, and the case drew strong reactions on both sides.

The men who were shot by Rittenhouse were all white, as was Rittenhouse, but many still believed the verdict to be an indicator of race relations in our justice system.

The jury in the case began deliberating on Tuesday morning, and today it finally reached a verdict, acquitting Rittenhouse on all five of the charges he was facing.

Naturally social media erupted after the verdict – and one of those responses was from Bubba Wallace, the only black driver in NASCAR’s Cup Series.

As is always the case with Wallace, his response to the verdict drew strong opinions from people on both sides of the case.

Bubba should be suspended and fired for making racist comments about Rittenhouse case. Come on NASCAR do it right.

Dam right he should be Suspended and made to do everything Kyle Larson had to do all he wants to do is drive the race card but I guess Nascar says it's ok to hate white people he is neither white or black just a halfbreed

Stick to losing races and whining about a garage door pull cord with a knot you don’t like.
