    • @Lone Wolf So women who speak up about harassment or rape are ‘playing the victim’? So a child that speak up about abuse is ‘playing the victim’? Why is someone’s experience or their reality ‘playing the victim’? Lewis experiences racism in a white sport so that’s ‘playing the victim’? What should Lewis do? Stay silent and accept it? Embrace it? Just because someone succeeds at something doesn’t mean obstacles weren’t there to stop them! Your comment makes no sense whatsoever! Look at Jackie Robinson the baseball player. He was successful and one of the greatest players ever but that doesn’t mean he didn’t experience racism! Do you know his story? He was spit on on, curse at, people threw bottles at him on the field, he received death threats, he couldn’t use the same shower or changing rooms as his teammates etc. yet he was still the greatest! Again, overcoming adversity and being successful doesn’t mean there were no obstacles to begin with. Lewis’s success doesn’t negate all the terrible experiences and racism he faced! Lewis succeeded in spite of the racism, not because it wasn’t there! Maybe learn a little about black history before speaking nonsense.

Your insecurities are showing!🤣 His personal belongings has NOTHING to do with what this video is about but yet YOU brought it up! Lol! For no reason! Clearly what’s bothering you is that Lewis is RICH and you’re not! That’s YOUR real problem with him! By the way, wealthy people experience racism too! If you were black (which you are clearly NOT) you would know that! Racist people don’t check how much money you have in your bank account, they just see your brown skin! PERIOD! I love when white people discredit something they know NOTHING about, will NEVER understand and will NEVER experience! Lol! It’s hilarious!

  • We see the closet racism directed at Lewis in F1 nearly every week with the constant microaggressions from the presenters and pundits and the overt attacks from the media and trolls. Thankfully Lewis see's what he's fighting for as bigger than him so he does not react to those microaggressions and instead sets an example by going out on track and winning which is the thing that hurts these closet racists the most. Lewis is an excellent role model and is doing a fantastic job.

    • @Krisis Cove Standing ovation!👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Truth!💯💯💯 I would love to put your post on a billboard at EVERY F1 race! You have hit the nail on the head that I’m close to tears!😢 TRUTH!!! What people don’t understand is that subtly Lewis has spoken about racism in F1 for YEARS but he has to tread lightly (as most black people in white spaces) because his career is always on the line. No matter how good a driver he is, his seat is always in jeopardy! If he misspoke or wore the wrong clothes or party to hard, the idiotic media were ready to call for the FIA to fire him! Even last year when he wore the Breyanna Taylor shirt on the podium, some media idiots wanted Lewis disqualified from the championship!😱 I was like....seriously? For a t shirt? Anything to get rid of him and to save Schumacher’s records!🙄 Lewis didn’t have the power back as a rookie like he does now so he had to stay quiet. But now he has the platform and he uses it to speak up for what is right! Go Lewis!👏🏾

    • Because 10 years ago he wasn't the face of F1. 10 years ago he didn't have the leverage he has now. He speaks up 10 years ago maybe Mclaren drops him? That is the problem with racism in general. Just look at Collins Kaepernick, he spoke up and lost his NFL career. No doubt speaking up is important but if speaking up loses you the platform you have, what good have you done? Not to mention (and this is something a lot of non black people don't understand). We generally get looked down upon or get called dramatic for using the "race card" even when we experience racism. Sort of like how women get called dramatic or emotional in work environments for speaking their mind and men get call brave and assertive. Same rule apply to black people for the most part. Simply put a lot of us don't get taken seriously when we speak up for ourselves, unless something as bad as George Floyd happens. TL:DR Lewis didn't have the power 10 years ago in F1 that he does now.

    • What planet have you been on this whole time? LOADS of low and high profile celebs spoke up before Georges’ death. But now, it’s everywhere, whereas before, no one was given the space to be heard.

    • Why does it matter when someone takes action as long as they do.....what did you do to take action?.....the nature of people is to try to find flaw in anything positive someone is doing....human beings can really be idiots and haters...even when the ending result is meant to be positive....THEY WILL FIND SOMETHING TO B*TCH ABOUT....

    • he's said on a few occasions that it's bubbled up to the point where he cannot stay silent anymore. He probably saw the public outcry and felt more comfortable to speak his mind. In this video, he says how him and his dad stayed quiet and let the talking get done on the track - they probably felt intimidated in a predominately white country and lewis in a predominately white sport. Instead of asking why he didn't do it 10 years ago, and ask why has it got to this point where he has to speak up? You're focusing your energy in the wrong place.

  • I understand that Hamilton as a child could have suffered racism but for him to say that currently in formula 1 there is racism is completely stupid.

    • @Rapture clearly you don’t watch the Monza race EVERY year when the crowds boo and tell Lewis to ‘fuck off’ but doesn’t tell Valtteri or any other white driver the same thing. Go watch the 2019 Italian Grand Prix podium ceremony on ISpast and listen to the crowds. A Ferrari driver won the race (Charles) yet the crowd booed and curse Lewis (who was 3rd) for NO REASON! Also, go watch the 2007 Spanish Grand Prix and look at the fans in the stands with ‘Afro wigs’ and blackface makeup with t shirts that say ‘Lewis family’ and tell me there is no racism in F1! I can’t understand why people who don’t experience racism love to deny that it exists! It’s puzzling! There are videos and pictures everywhere of the abuse Lewis experiences but yet....denial. Crazy! Do some research before talking from your butt!

    • @Rapture Original point still stands though. How do you know there isn't racism in the paddock? How do you know there's no racism from other drivers or team bosses? It's ok for us to sit on the outside and speculate, but Lewis Hamilton actually lives in that world. Just because he has a fantastic job and is rich doesn't make it right that he's treated differently because of his skin colour.

  • The very fact that Lewis Hamilton states this truth "that every Black person at some stage in their life will experience racism" is very disappointing because if the governments treated it like it was a pandemic they would have put things in place to help prevent and solve racism. However racism exists because of the way mainstream media and mainstream education subconsciously program people to think and react from an early age. Especially if they aren't taught to be a critical thinker.

    • @James Truth Exactly! Say it loud! The idiotic presenters were almost having dance parties when they realized Mercedes was slower this season but then Lewis showed them all why he has 7 freaking WDC, all the racists clowns almost died from anger when Lewis won! The saltiness on the tv would make the River Jordan ashamed! It was soooooooo obvious in Bahrain! They don’t even hide anymore! Lewis is the goat and the salty media and clown F1 fans can’t handle it! They are so desperate for their ‘snowflake savior’ Max to dethrone the Black Panther! DESPERATE!

Cows are my friends! 🐮 Yeah, you just are jealous of Lewis’s wealth and success because that’s something you will NEVER achieve! Lol! Keep projecting your insecurities on Lewis! How pathetic!🤣
