Conor Daly is paying for the sins of his father.
Conor’s father, Derek Daly, on Thursday admitted he had used a racial slur in a live radio interview in the early 1980s. Conor Daly was born in 1991.
On Friday, Lilly Diabetes pulled its sponsorship decals from Conor Daly’s No. 6 NASCAR ride, saying that it didn’t want the distraction from their cause.
This logic will be very useful for the Right. For instance, the ancestors of the upper management at Lilly Diabetes might have used colorful language on some occasions.
The article above provides no context for that "racial slur". What Derek Daly said:
"Also on Wednesday, Daly affirmed to News 8 reporters that his offensive comments from the 1980s were made to Bob Lamey."
Daly, however, wrote in his statement that he had used the racial slur after Henry asked him how things were going with his new team.
"I responded by explaining that I was a foreign driver now in America, driving for an American team, with an American crew, and with an American sponsor – and that if things did not go well, the only 'n-word in the wood pile' would be me.
Nigger in the woodpile. One can buy contemporary "music" from millionaires in which every other word is nigger, nigger, nigger to the power nigger. Yet, here, a White guy loses money because his dad said the same word 33 years ago.
We live in a time where a vile racist gets a job with the New York Times and Hollywood A-listers demand that a guy who tweeted about pedophilia get his job back— Cameron Gray (@Cameron_Gray) 25 August 2018
Your actions here are insane, @LillyDiabetes
