Is it absurd or totally justified? It is not for us to judge, but Hamilton’s F1 #BlackLivesMatter campaign is no longer limited to Instagram posts but is to be extended to capturing campaigns as well. The six-times World Champion is ready to act!
The racer battled against racism even before the George Floyd case. He remembers that during his career he himself had to face several times unjustified stereotypes and racist voices. Even today he is the only Afro-American F1 World Champion coming from the working class and landing on the top.
He aims at changing this situation, therefore he founded the Hamilton Committee, this action being presented for the first time in an interview for The Sunday Times. The purpose of the Committee is to cooperate with the Royal School of Engineering for the purpose of providing several Afro-American candidates with the possibility of embracing science and technology.
‘We are to analyze the reason for the lack of career role models and we aim at encouraging them to study, to develop and to join the dynamic world of racers. I would be very happy if influencers, politicians and company owners supported us in our efforts.
.In the following twenty years would be great to look back and to see that the Formula 1 became a co9lorful and complex field of specialty. It would be great to be able to say that the Formula 1 provided with an opportunity more than one working class child…’ – stated Hamilton, who by means of this step actually copied the well-known settings of American movies.
