Spencer Lindquist of the Daily Wire first broke the news during an appearance on "The Todd Starnes Radio Show." He told program host Todd Starnes that the NDIP, a summer internship offered by the motorsport organization, explicitly excludes White applicants.
"If you look at the program requirements, the very first one stipulates that you have to be one of several approved races. So they've got African-American, Hispanic or Latino, Asian – effectively lists all these different racial groups other than White people," said Lindquist. "So if you are White and you want to apply for this … NASCAR internship, you're ineligible.
A May 31 press release from the racing league expounded on the racial requirements. The NDIP is reportedly open to the following ethnicities – Black, Native American (including Native Alaskan), Asian, Hispanic, Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders.
The Daily Wire reporter consulted with legal scholar and constitutional lawyer David Bernstein, who said the NDIP is "blatantly illegal" and violates civil rights law. He continued: "If somebody wanted to apply for this, but couldn't [because] they were rejected on the basis of their race, they would actually have legal standing to sue NASCAR over this racial discrimination."
According to Lindquist, the NDIP formed part of a broader push for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) at NASCAR. He also cited the organization's Drive for Diversity and other race-based mentorship programs under it, including the Pit Crew Development Program for pit crew members and Driver Development Program for those who are not race car drivers but want to get behind the wheel.
"These similarly are all open to people who come from non-White racial backgrounds, or who are women. So [those programs] specifically discriminate against White men." (Related: London mayor's office in charge of public transport system BANS WHITES from applying for internships.)
Lindquist told Starnes that NASCAR did not respond to his request for comment on the matter. For his part, the program host expressed shock over the news. "We're talking about NASCAR here. It doesn't get more red, white and blue, more patriotic than NASCAR – and I think that's what's so shocking about this."
The Daily Wire reporter seconded Starnes' comments about people shocked by NASCAR's wokeism. "We're seeing more and more of these types of cases," he added.
"[While] this is not the first DEI-related job posting story that I've written – this one, I think, has been rather shocking to people. Maybe just because this isn't an arena where people seem to expect there being this type of DEI enforcement at a place like NASCAR."
According to Lindquist, the racing league is not the only company with such a DEI program in place. He recounted tech company Oracle implementing a similar internship and scholarship program that not only barred Whites from applying, but also Asians as well. "This is something that we're seeing at NASCAR and beyond," he told Starnes.
