More outlandish and offensive stuff from Formula 1 racing boss Bernie Ecclestone who is now pushing the narrative that Black people are more racist than whites.
Seriously. Here’s his latest quote — “In lots of cases, Black people are more racist than what White people are.”
Okay, some background … the 89-year-old racing legend was talking to CNN about Lewis Hamilton‘s social justice efforts in the recent months — when things turned sideways.
It started out nice … Ecclestone praised Hamilton saying he’s “very, very, very talented as a driver and he seems to be now extremely talented when’s he standing up and can make speeches.”
“This last campaign he’s doing for Black people is wonderful.”
But, when Ecclestone was asked about Lewis’ new endeavor — The Hamilton Project (created to help promote diversity in racing) … things started to go off the rails.
“I don’t think [The Hamilton Project] is going to do anything bad or good for Formula One.”
“It’ll just make people think which is more important. I think that’s the same for everybody. People ought to think a little bit and think: ‘Well, what the hell? Somebody’s not the same as White people and Black people should think the same about White people.'”
He followed up with this gem — “In lots of cases, Black people are more racist than what White people are.”
When CNN pushed for specific examples, Bernie didn’t cite any concrete evidence — explaining it’s something he’s “noticed” over the years.
When was the last time a white driver was racially taunted at a race?
It happened to Lewis Hamilton in 2008 and 2009 — when a bunch of racists put on blackface to taunt Lewis at the Spanish Grand Prix wearing shirts that read, “Hamilton’s Family.”
There’s obviously no shortage of examples, but you get the point.
Bernie has said a bunch of terrible stuff over the years — famously praising Adolf Hitler in 2009 for being “able to get things done.”
He also publicly supported Vladimir Putin‘s anti-gay policies and also sprinkled in some sexism … saying women should dress in white “like all other domestic appliances.”
Bernie Ecclestone, everyone. GTFOH
