50 Cent on Twitter: I ‘don’t see no black people’ at Daytona 500

50 Cent Dale Earnhardt Jr

50 Cent was among the celebrities on hand for the Daytona 500 Sunday, and he may have felt somewhat out of place. The rapper observed that there were very few black people at the track and tweeted about it:

50 appears to have deleted the tweet, but several people retweeted it, and Yahoo! Sports’ Dan Wetzel wrote about it.

NASCAR appears to be trying to invite diversity to the track by inviting 50, rapper T.I., and retired linebacker Ray Lewis to participate in race festivities. African-American athletes like Randy Moss and Michael Jordan have had racing teams (though Jordan’s was motorcycles), so it’s not as if racing is just a (southern) white thing. But it looks like the core of NASCAR fans remains Caucasian, as 50 noted.

50 still seemed to have a great time regardless. He mixed it up with plenty of drivers:
