NASCAR bans Confederate Flag

NASCAR has banned Confederate flags from all its races and events after African American driver Bubba Wallace called on the racing body to crack down on fans using the symbol. It’s the latest move by a major brand amid protests for racial justice. US Soccer also repealed a policy requiring players to stand during the National Anthem, and some US military leaders are considering renaming bases that honor Confederate commanders. Around the country, statues of Christopher Columbus and other problematic historical figures are coming down. On the legislative side, the Trump administration is reportedly mulling an executive order on police reform, though it’s unclear what it may contain. And in a case many activists say has gone under the radar during recent protests, the detective who applied for the warrant that ended in the March shooting death of Breonna Taylor has been placed on administrative reassignment.
