So just as an FYI, I work very closely with Equal Opportunity Managers (EEO) in conducting EEO investigations and there are explicit requirements under the law to PROVE or DISPROVE discrimination.

The fact that you simply LABEL others as Racists or are discriminating based on random posts on an F1 Board, without them stating they are outright racist, and without FACTS to back it up is simply not going to cut the mustard. You are simply a Flame Baiter, of which there are a dime a dozen.
Uhh, who are you? Read my post again. Specifically this:

I am only labeling you if you think F1 hasn't ever had a problem with race and diversity. Are you saying that you think F1 doesn't have and never has had this problem?

If what you say is true, you of all people should understand the impact race has had on F1 and not try to minimize it and sweep it under the rug. Talking about it doesn't have to have a negative connotation.

Are you saying you disagree with his experience and the racism he faced while growing up and working his way up the ranks to f1?

You can disagree with how he is using his platform to advocate for change in his sport and overall. Saying you disagree with his position, is like denying what he went through as a kid and even as an F1 driver with the racist fans. Let alone all the stuff you don't see behind the scenes.

You can disagree with how he is using his platform to advocate for change in his sport and overall. But it's pretty insulting to him and others that have experienced similar to pretend like stuff doesn't happen and that he shouldn't or anyone else shouldn't talk about it in F1.

That type of position makes it seem like you are okay with it and want to not talk about it, want to sweep it under the rug. Did you watch any of his interviews on the topic?

Further confirmation you are clueless with your speculations. This is my last post on the subject because I am now prolonging what I did not want to prolonged in the first place. This is a RACING BOARD. GO TAKE YOUR POLITICS TO A POLITICAL FORUM WHERE IT RIGHTFULLY BELONGS.

Sorry, at what point in time did I say anything political? I was specifically addressing racism. Racism isn't political, but yes certain politics sadly can be based on race. Please understand the difference.

It's unfortunate that you make some pretty bold claims, and then don't want to talk about what you said and the implications.

You said you don't agree with Lewis Hamilton's position on racism. His position is that he experienced it and wants to see change, even funding a commission to identify what can be done to help, where I bet he will contribute more funding to.

So you disagree with that? Are you saying you disagree with the racism he experienced? Are you saying you disagree with his position to want to see change in the sport and overall in the world?

Remember, I am only labeling you if you think F1 hasn't ever had a problem with race and diversity. Are you saying that you think F1 doesn't have and never has had this problem? You haven't denied this yet, so maybe you truly do think this.

You can disagree with how he is using his platform to advocate for change in his sport and overall. But that doesn't seem to be what you are disagreeing with based on your comments. But ill let you use it as a way out.

Cheers.

So no response to this eh? I guess that means you think diversity/racism has never been a problem in F1 because you aren't saying otherwise.

Looks like at least one of the drivers is getting a head start for Monaco.
