The partner of NASCAR driver Darrell “Bubba” Wallace has issued a response to the noose found in his team’s garage last week, saying that “no one, (sic) deserves to receive this kind of hate.”

Amanda Carter wrote on Instagram Monday that “there is so much work to be done,” after NASCAR announced that a noose was discovered in the garage belonging to his team, No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports. Wallace, the only Black NASCAR driver, had recently pushed for the elite racing series to ban the Confederate flag from its events, which it has.

“1. The fact that people think it’s okay to commit a hate crime is not a surprise but a disappointment, especially this close to home. What happened this week at talladega (sic) is NOT OKAY! No one, (sic) deserves to receive this kind of hate,” she wrote.

“2. We must lift each other up, support and protect our friends, family, loved ones,” Carter added.

Carter, who is white, noted that her dating a Black man “does not exempt” her from “taking a look” at herself.

“3. We must continue the conversation, no one is exempt from taking a look at themselves, the fact I date a black (sic) man does not exempt me. We all have prejudice and need to take action to change that and prevent it from becoming racism.

“4. Don’t rely on the black (sic) community to answer all your questions, there are tons of resources available to open your perspective (movies, books, shows podcasts),” she continued.

“5. Thank you to those who have been working toward a better future whether that is in private or public, these waves will bring change.

“Additionally thank you to all of my friends, family and of course Darrell’s fans who have reached out with support I share your messages with him and he appreciates it too.”

Carter included “#blacklivesmatter,” at the end of her post.
