Everything matters, let's follow the humanness

Stay against racism action

Nascar's pre-race show at Atlanta Motor Speedway began with a special moment of silence. All team members lined up along the pit wall for the powerful moment of silence, then followed with several drivers addressing the issue of racial injustice and pledging to 'listen and learn' more about the struggles faced by people of color every day in the United States. And this is great at this time!

You know, we live in a time when the stars of autosport can't ignore what is happening in the world. It was a bit strange to watch Formula 1 direction kept the silence for a long time. It was possible to get attention and call for unity in the "stand against racism" only after F1 world champion, Lewis Hamilton social media activity. 
No, don't get me wrong, I'm not calling for mass protests, just attention. Global problems in the world need for public attention, everything is matter. It's not important whether we're talking about ecology or not ...... but when it comes to inequity abuse..... isn't Motorsport the kind of thing that can do this function? And it's time to get used to the fact that World racing stars are public figures, and F1 has a multi-million audience.

Why am I saying this? Because we are all people, no matter how different we are, we are similar: we overcome difficulties, we feel happiness and sadness in one similar way, we are people. Today, the problems of our society on any continent are our common problems. 

Why am I saying this? Because this is important, unlikely we're able to overcome global problems alone, this is possible when we all together: seeing, hearing, and understanding what is happening in the world.
