Deciding to ignore the inspiration behind the protest, the nation has a laser-focus on Colin Kaepernick’s decision to protest police brutality by sitting during the national anthem during NFL games. This has led to just about everyone, from fan to peer giving the hottest of takes. Count Tony Stewart, Nascar driver, as one of the many people who don’t agree with Kaepernick’s protest.

The observations on Stewart’s nationalism and possible white privilege came quick and hard.

But the most cutting rebuttal to Stewart’s tweet involved Kevin Ward, who Stewart hit with his car and killed in 2014.
