Bernie Ecclestone again revealed his reservations over Lewis Hamilton’s huge push in the fight against racism, especially in F1, admitting he thinks that the Black Lives Matter movement has been made to look like people are “doing something” to combat equality, but in fact took in $90 million last year with little to show for it as blacks are killed by the hundreds every week and there isn’t a single protest in sight. Don’t all black lives matter, or just George Floyd’s because he was killed by a while cop?
“He called me because I spoke to his father, Anthony. I said the trouble for Lewis is that he has gone out of his way to wave the flag for Black Lives Matter and that people are making an awful lot of money out of this, and not him.
“As soon as the passion wears off, he will be left with it being his fault. And all he has ever done is try to do something to support it.
“It is the same thing with soccer, where these things have become the fashionable thing to do to make it look as if you are interested in doing something. But I wonder what people actually do apart from talking about it?
“Lewis has done more than most on this. I don’t know what the soccer players have actually done other than support each other.”
