What?

From the news story links that were provided above:

Wallace, the sport's only full-time African-American driver, had called the discovery at the time a "despicable act of racism and hatred"
Nascar chief Steve Phelps said: "We're going to use every effort to find who has done this. "They will be banned from this sport for life."
Bubba Wallace: 'Noose' found in black NASCAR driver's garage was not a crime, FBI says. Video evidence showed a garage door pull rope "fashioned like a noose" had been in the garage since October 2019, authorities say.
So just a racists-under-the-beds story, it seems. If that video had not been found, you can be sure that the outrage meltdown by the usual culprits would have gone on for months...

I am pretty sure that they will find that this cop said these things over 8 months ago too, so its probably just more racists-under-the-bed. Give the cop his job back

I hope there's plenty of room under that bed. Just a few examples.

I'm relieved that in these highly volatile times the noose "incident" does not appear to have provoked people into doing more lootings and burnings, thank heavens no more people have been hurt or killed. Looking at the video footage it appears that if he'd consulted his colleagues and workers on the site before going to the media, etc this might have all been avoided.

You cant let go of trying to make this about a person of color being at fault can you?
Can you confirm that it was Bubba Wallace (I assume your "he" is Mr Wallace*), who went to the media? I dont know if it was him or Nascar organization, and I dont know if it was the police first.
Given the support of all of "his colleagues and workers on the site" in the escort and push to the top of the grid, it is hard for the casual observer to conclude other, than that they all had some idea of what had happened, whether directly consulted, approached or word of mouth.

Your attempt here so sickened me, that you got me to look in to it.
“The crew member went back in there. He looked and saw the noose, brought it to the attention of his crew chief, who then went to the NASCAR series director Jay Fabian, and we launched this investigation" NASCAR President Steve Phelps
all of which bypasses Mr Wallace.
NASCAR did a news release about the discovery Sunday night, they contacted FBI on Monday morning.

From "sportingnews.com" Looks like they had to counter other sickos claims

"Bubba Wallace is to blame."

Wallace was not directly involved in the discovery and/or escalation of the noose in his garage stall at Talladega on Sunday.

Wallace during the CNN interview Tuesday night explained he was simply sitting in his motor home at the track Sunday evening after the race had been postponed to Monday, preparing to go out to dinner with fellow drivers, when Phelps called and said the two needed to speak in person.

Like all drivers, Wallace has specific orders to stay in his motor home while at the track as a coronavirus-related precaution. He has not been in a garage since NASCAR returned to live racing last month

What? I frankly don't care what colour he is. Why are you so obsessed with going on about race all the time? If you can't stop yourself from racialising everything, then that is on you - not me!

Going by what he has said both before and since the FBI revealed that it is in fact not a hate incident, he has been owning it. It is he who was most vocal. It is he who went on CNN about it. And if the truth be known, who really gives a toss whether it was him, one or his colleagues or the Nascar organisation? Someone among them should have said "er no, it's just a garage door pull cord...".
