Lewis has been getting alot of negative messages on this website about his view on BLM which I have not approved. I know alot of fans are disappointed that he has taken a less politically correct route on this very sensitive issue. However unless you have been a victim of racism all your life, you will not understand the emotional hurt one who is subjected to racism goes through.
Lewis’s reactions might appear to be knee jerk but in reality it is the years of dealing with it. Just because a victim of racism becomes successful does not mean the hurtful memories & feelings will go away. Most carry it to their graves and give up many things they might like doing because of racism in that particular activity.
Racism does not always to come in big dosses, like systemic racism practised in many places & countries. It is the little cruel things that are given in small dosses regularly that breaks many.
As the admin of this website, I have not approved 1000s of pure hate messages directed at Lewis since he started F1. I never realised people could be so nasty! Those messages are some of the worst that anyone can receive just for being black.
To err is human and Lewis should not condone or encourage any form of violence, but I do understand how he has been drawn into this. I just ask for his fans to be patient as he has not changed .
About the Bullfighting remarks, again he is entitled to his opinion , it is a cruel and unnecessary sport. Especially if you are a vegan or vegetarian you will find it more against your principals. Gladiators killing each other has been deemed cruel and stopped. With progress other cruel things administered to sentient beings need to be stopped too. The Spanish are angry but over the years the worst racist messages have been left by the Spanish !
