Those haters are the ones letting what he does bother him too much. We all can have an opinion on things, but maybe some should realise that itís not up to them what he does, however much anyone disagrees. The way some are talking youíd think Lewis sank the titanic, invaded Poland and started this whole pandemic

same.

the man pays taxes in multiple countries, and contributes a HUGE amount to the sport, and society as a whole. watching him blossom from a young man being shaped by the expectations of his sport to a grown man telling the sport what he expects of it has been refreshing and joyful. his self expression is paving the way for everybody to step outside of the short back and sides, freshly shaved pr drones. his actions benefit us all.

Ah don't be proud of that. It's widely accepted that whoever invokes Godwin's Law has lost the argument

I completely agree with Bella and several others above.

The comments (as I made the mistake of reading) on Twitter about Hamilton's knighthood, made for depressing and annoying reading. People made various comments we've all seen before (taxes, the car, BLM, politics), however those people never seem to have the same problems with any of the white drivers, past or present.
How strange, the guy who looks different being held to a completely different set of standards.

The difference being that he is the first WDC to actively speak out on any issue outside racing. There are other mixed race F1 drivers. What I see is the danger is that if you dare to disagree with his views, say on dog food, there are those on social media who declare you to be racist. I've seen that a lot.

But not as much as those who immediately jump to vilify him.

It is much harder to stop and try and understand the point, to listen. It is much easier to come up with a simple excuse why you don’t need to listen and can continue with your life in ignorant bliss.

I suspect, hope, most people aren’t directly racist, even on Twitter, but what they are is uninterested in understanding other people. It’s too much effort and may be upsetting to their current world view. Hence all these other less important things are pushed to the fore rather than the actual issue.

that kind of thing is usually explained if you take a look at the profile and timeline of the person who disagrees with his views.

lewis is still pretty centrist. he's not saying anything radical.

Albon.

Wehrlein.

Ocon and I’m sure other French drivers have African heritage too.
