NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace – who is black – jumped to Twitter immediately after Kyle Rittenhouse was pronounced “not guilty” on all counts to insist that he would have received a life sentence if the teen were black.
Minutes after a jury in Kenosha, Wisconsin, announced its verdict clearing Rittenhouse of every charge lodged against him, Wallace pronounced the verdict “sad” and hinted that it was a result of racism.
“Ha, let the boy be black and it would’ve been life…hell he would’ve had his life taken before the bullshit trial… sad,” Wallace tweeted.
