    Earnhardt was asked his opinion of the controversial flag by reporters at the Sonoma Raceway on Friday.

    “I think it’s offensive to an entire race,” Earnhardt said. “It does nothing for anybody to be there flying, so I don’t see any reason. It belongs in the history books and that’s about it.”

    NASCAR and the Confederate flag are a tradition that goes back over 50 years. I wouldn't be surprised if even more Confederate flags show up at NASCAR races in the stands, infield and parking lots.

    You do know what will happen next!

    All the states and black "leaders" will start to say that it must be banned from the tracks. NASCAR now being P.C. anyways will make the grandstanding move to outright ban it from all races and they will see a huge blowback that will eventually dissipate. Much like when they brought in Toyota, but on a different scale.

    It didn't take long
    NASCAR chairman wants Confederate flag eliminated at races
    SONOMA, Calif. (AP) — Calling the Confederate flag an "insensitive symbol" he personally finds offensive, NASCAR chairman Brian France said the sport will be aggressive in disassociating the symbol from its events.

    "We want to go as far as we can to eliminate the presence of that flag," France told The Associated Press on Saturday. "I personally find it an offensive symbol, so there is no daylight how we feel about it and our sensitivity to others who feel the same way.

    "We're working with the industry to see how far we can go to get that flag to be disassociated entirely from our events."

    The flag essentially says, "Our hatred of blacks is so intense that we started a full out war resulting in millions of deaths solely due because it was a threat to our ability to enslave them"

    Weird it's taken this long

    The confederate flag is not a symbol of hate, it is the target of hate. Just look how irate the high brow people get when they talk about it.

    He doesn't strike me as someone who has much experience with history books.
