Motocross Racer James “Bubba” Stewart Say’s He Didn’t Know He was Black.

    

Motocross racer James Stewart recently did an interview on ESPN”S E-60 show, where he stated that he did not realize he was black until his first year of pro racing.  Mr. Dontknow found this to be quite interesting being that he was participating in a sport dominated by white males.  His father claimed he sheltered his son, Bubba Stewart from a lot of the racial tension he faced during bringing his boy up in motocross.  I would think that would be more of a reason to educate your offspring on some of the harsh realities that exist in life.  There definitely should be some sense of cultural pride within one’s self.  Also,  knowing your history and what it means to you as a person is very important.  Just for the simple fact that without our ancestors and their sacrifices,  James Bubba Stewart would not have been able to race with the whites in motocross.  Mr. Dontknow says “learn your history because you don’t want to wait until your 21 to find out what race you are”.   James Bubba Stewart owes it to himself to acknowledge what race he is and what that his race has sacrificed for him to have the things he has,  along with his family.  Respectfully, Mr. Dontknow.
