NASCAR Fans Boo Michelle Obama (Video)
Who needs approval ratings? If an audio poll from 80,000 NASCAR fans isn’t enough to indicate whether or not the United States is pleased with its current administration, I don’t know what is. First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, led the way during the pre-race ceremonies on Sunday at the Ford 400 Sprint Cup season finale. The race was held at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and fans didn’t exactly give Obama and Biden a warm welcome. Check it out:
There you have it. If NASCAR fans say it’s no good, it must be no good. All joking aside, there have been rumblings about this being a racial issue and people are up in arms that the fans booed the First Lady. I’m not saying there weren’t racist people sitting in the stands somewhere, but you don’t really have to pay attention to politics to know that Barack Obama isn’t exactly the most beloved man in America. The booing was certainly disrespectful, but saying it was a racist act is sensationalism at its finest.
