I would think the only expression on the faces of the other in attendance would be looks of shock and confusion. I mean seriously, NASCAR is a sport whose fanbase is made up almost entirely of rednecks from south of the Mason-Dixon line. I don't understand people's fascination with it, I don't even understand why I like racing, but I do, I like watching NASCAR on the tele. This was stupid of NBC to do this, but hey, I kind of think it is funny in the end, they got burned because of the civility of the people in attendance at this race. I don't honestly know what they hoped to prove here, I am sure anti-Muslim sentiment is just as high in California and New York as it is in Alabama. Now if NBC had really wanted to get a story they should have sent these men in there wearing shirts celebrating the attack on 9/11, then they could have had their stories about anti-Muslim sentiment, of course they wouldn't mention what the men were wearing.

Please note, I can call anyone who watches NASCAR a redneck because I do and I am one. Or at least so I tell myself. Did I ever tell you guys how to properly celebrate a redneck Fourth of July? Just remember three key words, FFA, Fireworks, Firearms and Alcohol.

FFA, you got it just about right on that.

NBC is just showing their true colors. They are Anti-American.

They learned all of that from the best, the European media.

With US news and Euro news being like it is, you're better off getting your news from China.

My news come form one Source. PEOPLE THAT ARE THERE. Such as my friends in Iraq and Afghanistan. Or from my own eyes and understanding of World Politics.

I am surprised at the restraint shown by my fellow Nascarites in that they were only film facial expressions and not something more... I bet that is what the NBC folks were counting on, happy they were disappointed.

wow...the level people will go to in order to get a few more viewers...sad. NASCAR has a lot of trashing done about it because it is a "redneck" sport. just because the majority of its watchers are southerners doesnt mean its a redneck sport. there are rednecks in maine...every state has rednecks...apparently NBC believes that rednecks or people in southern states are automatically racist...course, my dad always says it takes one to know one...

The term Redneck, when I was growing up, meant "hard worker." I know it has changed a little bit over the years, but for the most part, those that are "rednecks" are still just good ole boys enjoying the simplicities of life. Just because someone uses the term, I don't automatically attached a negative connotation to it, or align it with the KKK or other fringe groups. No one should.

I've also found over the years, like your dad, that those who scream the loudest about others being racist, are generally, themselves, racists.
