NASCAR opposes gay discrimination law

Posted By on Mon, Apr 25, 2016 at 4:16 PM

I kid you not.

This week, NASCAR spoke out against North Carolina’s discriminatory anti-LGBT law, HB 2, stating that the racing company is working to change it.

“We take the position that any discrimination, unintended or not, we do not like that," Chairman Brian France said.
Can we dream of a day when Gov. Asa Hutchinson, Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, the Arkansas Republican congressional delegation and the Arkansas Republican legislature will be as supportive of equal rights as NASCAR?

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
