50 Cent Sees 'No Black People' At Daytona 500
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. Give NASCAR credit for this, the racing circuit continues to attempt to diversify its fan base.

This year, in a continued effort to show racing fast cars should appeal to more than just its traditionally white fan base, the circuit brought in African American celebrities such as recording artists 50 Cent and T.I. and future Hall of Fame NFL star Ray Lewis to the Daytona 500. It's a long way from the traditional slate of country singers.
Yet even with the best intentions, the intended message may not be getting out.
"Damn, I don't see no black people lol," 50 Cent tweeted Sunday after arriving at Daytona International Speedway.
That was about the last message NASCAR was hoping to have hammered home to 50 Cent's nearly eight million followers.

Are Black people not allowed to buy tickets? If there is nothing preventing Blacks from buying tickets, then this idiot needs to STFU.
BTW, how does a diverse fan base make the sport better?
Blinding Flash of the Obvious there, Curtis. There aren’t many white people at the Bayou Classic, either. Different Strokes.
Guys, there are very few Hindus in the Memphis BBQ Shack; how is that MY problem?
What genius at NASCAR made the decision to hire this animal?
What a waste of money.
No white members in the Congressional Black Caucus. Just saying.
Dont see a lot of white people at the BET awards either.
I love pointless observations too, Fidity Cent!
Well they aren’t missing much...watching funny-looking cars covered with advertisements going round and round in circles for about four hours. I’d rather take the wife shopping. At least I’ll get to see some good looking women at the mall. (Men wear sunglasses at the mall for a reason.)
Does this mean we’re having an early spring?
WHAT? Can white people not buy tickets to the Bayou Classic? LOL! If you are not interested in something then you don’t buy tickets to it and dang if I’d be forced to go to the 500 just for equality purposes. I meant the Bayou Classic. Or something.
50 Cent likes the old 50s and 60s and 70s American cars. The guy is one of the better rappers who has gotten himself into some pretty good business deals. He made 100 million on Vitamin Water
NASCAR hired Ray Lewis.
Yeah I saw the Fiddy Cent dude kissin on a reluctant Erin Andrews . and he sizes up her back side too. Keepin it classy. I think Black people should get into nascar hell there pretty good drivers when the po po is chasing them
All they gotta do is change NASCAR rules to require the drivers to dribble a basketball while racing.
Of course there’s no black people at the Daytona 500. There’s legions of hooded KKK at all entrances with crosses burning and there’s been a month long media campaign warning black people not to attend.
Baby steps, Fhedee. Women have just punched their ticket. Nascar don’t roll with Caddys or Landrovers with shag carpet within just yet.
Would there be if someone started running Caddies, Mercedes or Chrysler 300s?
What? No NASCAR muslim outreach?
Barry the Kenyan needs to start busing “black folk” to NASCAR races. They’d be welcome whether 50 cents and his government forced them to go or not. On the other hand, I’m not going to any damn hip hop concerts. That stuff is BS.
By the way he reacted to Erin Andrews with that awkward attempt at kiss, he wasn’t looking for black people...
1. Why didn’t any black people go to the nascar event?
2. Who cares who is there?
3. So what?
4. Why is this something to say “Damn” about?
5. Is it important that they are there, or is it important that “half-a-buck” SEES that some are there so he for some reason, feels better?
Why, our diversity is our strength of course!
Didn’t you read the MLK speech about how he dreamed of a day when a man was judged not by the color of his skin but by the content of his...
OK that was a bad example.
Anyway, that's the thing about modernity and freedom. Events and activities are open to everybody, but not everybody goes in for the same things to the same degree.
You have the opportunity to drive at Daytona or sing at the Met or play at Carnegie Hall or the Superbowl if you're good enough, but you don't get a guarantee that everybody in the audience is going to share your own exact skin tone.
He’s one of the ‘better’ rappers, huh? Here’s some lyrics I just looked up from a song named ‘Heat’:
Aye you want some of this ****”
“No, I don’t want that ****”
“I don’t give a ****, I don’t play that ****”
“And I’m fin’nin to buss a cap in a *****”
“Man shut the **** up”
“Whoa slow down, slow down, slow down”
“You see that brick house right there”
“That’s the ***** crib when he come out you gotta tighten his *** up”
“I’ma get in the other car”
“Alright” (a car revs up)
[Chorus: 50 Cent]
If there’s beef, **** it and dump it, the drama really means nothing
To me I’ll ride by and blow ya brains out (brains out)
There’s no time to **** it, no way you can stop it
When *****s run up on you wit them things out (things out)
I do what I gotta do I don’t care I if get caught
The DA can play this **********ing tape in court
I’ll kill you - I ain’t playing, hear what I’m saying, homie I ain’t playing
Catch you slipping, I’ma kill you, I ain’t playing, hear what I’m saying,
Homie I ain’t playing
Thanks for assuring me that everything I thought about rap and those who like it is correct.
And I would assume Mr.(no)Cents wouldn’t see many whites at one of his crappy concerts. Get over it.
“The guy is one of the better rappers who has gotten himself into some pretty good business deals. He made 100 million on Vitamin Water”
I think he does a lot of charity work and donates to some fairly worthy causes, too.
Well, it’s obvious that the government needs to shut down NASCAR events until the proper percentage of black people want to watch races. While they’re at it not enough black people attend operas and Beethoven concerts, shut them all down!
Why would that even make a difference if you are not a racist...just sayin’!
I wonder how many white people he sees at the dog fights?
Has there ever been a gang banger shooting at a NASCAR event?
Like we now see on the Vegas strip.
fiddy scent doan consider himsef tubee black...
Fiddy Sent can cram it.
No one is stopped from being at NASCAR because of the pigmentation of their skin.
Man, these people who say “skin color doesn’t matter” sure do get OBSESSED with skin color, don’t they?
Yeah, and I don’t see any white people at the local social services recruitment office.
BTW, I am not watching the race today...my time spending hours watching NASCAR went out the window when they started sucking up to the Assclown currently occupying the Oval Office.
They had his beard and Biden’s wife do the call at Homestead a couple of years ago, and that was the last straw.
I’ll watch occasionally now, but I’m done with being a big fan. NASCAR turned me off with their political correctness.
It's not the sport or the sport fans preventing them but merely their lack of interest in those particular sports.
Haven’t spewed a drink due to laughing in a while. Thanks!
50 Cent seems to have delusions of Grandeur..
may only be worth a Dime.
I recall in 2006 when the NBC Dateline program sent some people in muslim garb to a NASCAR race in Texas, along with a film crew to document the race fans reaction to their presence. They were of course expecting a lynching or at least a beating, but the “rednecks” didn’t give them a second look.
Typical racist. Just sees skin color. What a dope.
Forget NASCAR....plenty of the “brothers” in the pits and the starting line at NHRA drag races.
There would be more black fans at NASCAR events if there were more black drivers. Anyone know why there aren’t any?
ANSWER: They don’t have the balls.
Not many shootings, knifings ,robbing, and rapings there either.
