Whoops: MLB Moving All Star Game To 9% Black Denver From 51% Black Atlanta

Good job, Wokesters! You freaked out over a voting law you didn’t read and listened to idiots fearmongering and telling you lies about the new law. Now all the black business owners and workers are out somewhere between $38 million and $190 million in revenue from the game

‘Woke’ MLB moving All-Star Game from 51% Black Atlanta to 76% White Denver, critics note

Opponents of MLB’s decision Monday to move the 2021 All-Star Game to Denver because of Georgia’s new voting law suggest the move could end up hurting Atlanta’s Black residents rather than helping them.

They note the move will deal an economic blow to Atlanta, which is 51% Black, and provide a boost to Colorado’s capital, which is only 9% Black, according to U.S. Census figures.

The “Midsummer Classic” was set for July 13 at Truist Park, home of the Atlanta Braves, until the Major League Baseball decided Friday to change its location — a decision that was cheered by several large corporations. On Monday, MLB announced the game will now be played at Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies.

According to 2019 U.S. Census data, Atlanta is 51% Black and 40.9% White, while Denver is 9.2% Black and 76% White. (snip)

Nearly 30% of businesses in Atlanta are Black-owned, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Great job there, moonbats, great job. Your unhinged Wokeism Outrage based on lies hurt blacks. Why aren’t they calling for moving the Atlanta Braves out of Georgia if they’re so worried? And the Falcons?

Oh, and there’s something else interesting about this

(Breitbart) MLB removed the All-Star Game from Atlanta after Georgia passed a series of voter reforms aimed at safeguarding the integrity of their elections. MLB and other corporations claimed that the new law acted as a “voter suppression” measure by shortening early voting periods and requiring ID.

Putting the falseness of those claims aside, for a moment, one would think that if MLB were so appalled by those measures, they would move their All-Star game to a place that fewer voting restrictions, not more.

However, that is not the case.

Not only does the state of Colorado require proof of identification when casting a ballot to vote, but it also has fewer early voting days than Georgia.

Oops? An ID card in Georgia costs $32, good for 8 years. It’s $12.67 in Colorado, good for 5 years (free if over 60). You can get a free ID strictly for voting in Georgia, though. Private entities really need to read the freaking laws and such before going Woke and driving away their patrons.

    GA is expected to lose 100 million
    National corporations do not want to be associated in anyway with states that try to restrict voting
    GA restricts voting by non whites by making them wait for 2/3 hours to
    vote by restricting the number of polling places in democratic areas
    That is Jim Crow shameful
    FL is also notorious for doing that
    NC gerrymanders so much that the courts declared their gerrymandering illegal repeatedly

    • Jl says:

      Except they’re not restricting voting, they’re attempting to restrict illegal voting. What’s happened is that you’ve been told it will restrict voting, but you don’t know that because…….stay with me John….no one has yet voted under the new law. Since voter ID laws have been passed, the amount of people voting has risen, with 2020 setting a new record. John doesn’t realize he undermines his own point when he states elsewhere that 9 out the top ten states in voter participation are blue states. So, John-that voter suppression thing doesn’t seem to be working out too well, now does it?

    • Jl says:

      Here you go, John-this from a few years ago after Texas instituted voter ID. Voter participation actually went up. Don’t you remember hearing about it when CNN, MSNBC CBS, NBC and ABC covered it extensively? Yah, me neither… https://www.cnn.com/2013/11/12/opinion/preston-texas-id-laws/index.html

      Then why do companies have businesses in New York?

      The Georgia bill opens up voting more than the state of New York. Or didn’t you realize that?

      GA restricts voting by non whites by making them wait for 2/3 hours to
      vote by restricting the number of polling places in democratic areas

      Factually false, but you always have hated the truth.

      That is Jim Crow shameful

      It should be remembered that Jim Crow laws were instituted by Democrats, but that bit of history eludes you as well.

      NC gerrymanders so much that the courts declared their gerrymandering illegal repeatedly

      As have courts declare Maryland’s, Illinois, California and other democratic states gerrymandering illegal. In fact, New York has been gerrymandering for years as well. You aren’t complaining about those states because when it comes down to it, you hate other Americans so much that your hypocrisy and lies are acceptable to you.

      Then again, all the left has is hate.

    STOP WATCHING THE MLB on TELEVISION comprised of about 5 percent blacks and the rest are white nationalists!!!!!

    It’s time for the RIGHT to JOIN THE CANCEL CULTURE!!!!

    The new HISPANIC LEAGUES OF AMERICA IS considering changing their name to MS-13 MMA BASEBALL LEAGUE.

    The left is hysterical at the election reforms in GA. meant to stop Stacey Abrams from stealing more elections because that is basically what she said she would do after losing the GA. GOVERNORS race.

    You can go to all the games you want. STOP WATCHING MLB on TV. That is where you sucker punch the MLB and the NBA. Stop buying their official gear.

    STOP using Amazon. Amazon gets an estimated 75 percent of their stuff they sell you FROM CHINA.

    SUPPORT MOM and POPS around the country. It’s easy to do. I just paid over 2000 dollars to upholster my patio furniture seat cushions rather than buy new ones from various CORPORATIONS, MADE IN FUKING CHINA for about 800 bucks. Yeah it hurts the wallet but it sure does help the local economy instead of KOHL’s or WALMART or AMAZONS bottom line.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Racism is the cornerstone of the nuConservatism. All Asians are commies! All Hispanics are MS-13! All Blacks are murderers! Only caucasoids can save us!

      • Est1950 says:

        ALL ASIANS ARE WHITE NATIONALISTS…….RACIST

        ALL HISPANICS are WHITE NATIONALIST….RACIST

        ALL WHITES ARE WHITE NATIONALISTS……RACIST

        The only non racist race is BLACKS.

        Stop your fuking lying Elwood. You are a confused white man who forgets that CRITICAL RACE THEORY teaches everyone is a racist WHITE NATIONALIST person of privledge except Blacks.

        How can we be RACIST against WHITE NATIONALISTS?

        Answer me this genius?

  3. Hairy says:

    9 of the 10 states that have the highest percent of voter participation
    Vote Dem
    Red states do no want high percentages of voters able to cast meaningful votes

    • Est1950 says:

      Your post just proves how rampant voter fraud is in blue states Hairy.

      Minnesota, Wisconsin, Maine, North Dakota, Iowa, Montana, New Hampshire, Oregon, Missouri, South Dakota, District of Columbia with Minnesota being 1 and DC being 10 in the top 10 in voter turn out.

      Lets see 9 out of 10 are Blue states.

      So North Dakota, Iowa, Montana, Missouri, South Dakota are BLUE????????? Wisconsin has a red legislature and had a Red Governor up until the last Election for Governor so it is considered a swing state, purple and hardly BLUE.

      So once again Hairy just makes shit up and throws it against his keyboard in hopes no one calls him out on it.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach and those like him ignore that GA has taken election oversight from the counties and Sec of State replaced it with oversight from partisan legislators. The GA legislature would have “found” those votes that the former guy needed!

    The new Georgia elections law is a measure that shifts a significant amount of election oversight power from the secretary of state and county election boards to the legislature. The measure removes the elected secretary of state as chair of the state election board and replaces him or her with an appointee of the Republican-run legislature.

    The law doesn’t just change who picks the chair. Now, the majority of the board’s members will be legislative appointees, and the board gains ominous new power: the ability to remove and replace election officials administering the vote at the level where the real elections work happens — the county level.

    Let’s say the state board does not like the way vote-counting is going in heavily Democratic Fulton County. Under the new law, the board can fire those in charge and plop in a new boss more to its liking.

    Teach and those of his ilk hope the sleight of hand – Colorado has fewer early voting days! – works.

    The GQP, the minority party in America, can only maintain power by controlling election laws.

    Donald Josef Trump: It’s not who casts the votes that counts, it’s who counts the votes cast that counts!

    • Est1950 says:

      ELWOOD opined: Teach and those like him ignore that GA has taken election oversight from the counties and Sec of State replaced it with oversight from partisan legislators.

      So…….“The Times, Places and *****Manner***** of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof;

      The constitution fully vests in the state legislators the right to determine how their elections are conducted. The left is all for Vaccination Passports but not for and ID. In fact it is the law to have an ID to live in any state. So why should it be so difficult for black people to present and ID when they vote?

      WASHINGTON – The Department of Homeland Security (DHS or the Department) is announcing that after more than 15 years since Congress passed the REAL ID Act, all 50 states are now in full compliance issuing these cards, with most states becoming compliant in the last four years.

      Showing an ID simply infringes drastically on states ability to CHEAT during elections and if the Democratic party cannot cheat. They cannot win. Evidence 2020.

  5. Jl says:

    You can’t make this stuff up-MLB moves the All Star game from Georgia to another state that requires voter ID-Colorado. Just when you think the virtue-signaling crowd can’t become more hypocritical, here comes MLB, Delta Airlines, American Airlines, liberals in general, etc…

  6. Kye says:

    The MLB’s decision to move the 2021 All-Star game could cost black-owned businesses $30-50 million. Nearly 30% of businesses in Atlanta are black-owned (as opposed to only 9% in Denver), and Georgia will face an estimated lost economic impact of more than $100 million due to the MLB’s boycott of Atlanta, according to the president and CEO of Cobb Travel and Tourism Holly Quinlan.

    Major League Baseball is reportedly planning to move the All-Star game from Atlanta, Georgia to Denver, Colorado, over Georgia’s recent election bill, meaning they will be moving the game from a city with mostly black citizens to a city with mostly white citizens.

    Atlanta, Georgia, is 51% black and 40.9% white ,US census data from 2019 showed. Denver was 80.9% white and 9.8% black in 2019, according to US census data ESPN reported Monday that the All-Star Game would take place at Coors Field.

    Ahhh, the lyin’ liars on the left just to keep their phony narrative going.

    • Est1950 says:

      Upon my advice, Donald J. Trump he announced today that the MLB should be boycotted. Nothing like moving the MS-13 Hispanic baseball league to Colorado, the home of more illegals aliens than practically any other state.

      Remember Elwood. Critical Race theory says that Hispanics are WHITE NATIONALISTS…therefore being angered with hispanics if REQUIRED!!!! This is what you WANT taught in our colleges, schools and government facilities.

      I’m just doing what you want in pointing out the obvious.

      • Est1950 says:

        All Hispanics and Asians and Muslims and WHITE PEOPLE should not be allowed to vote or have a job. Only Black people should be given any kind of privileges.

        This is what Critical RACE theory teaches. I’m not being racist. The USA should take everyones property, beginning with Elon Musk, Warrent Buffet, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos just to name a few and give it in reparations to Black people.

        Amazon and Microsoft and Tesla and Washington Post should all be given to random black people selected in a lottery.

        Meanwhile the rest of us should be pickin cotton and beans since there should be no more fossil fuels to fuel the nation. Or perhaps we can turn most of the red states into rice paddies. China however will just invade the USA and take all these countries and assign us a social score and even poor Elwood won’t be able to buy a pretzel or ride the bus because he is just too full of wrong think.

        How dare he think ASIANS are evil and White Nationalists like he demanded be taught in our schools and by our government.

        • Kye says:

          Est1950, The Elwood hates White people, hates Christians and literally hates America so badly he wants to turn it into a fascist state with one party rule. And when I ask him repeatedly Why? he refuses to explain, calls me names, insinuates I treat my Asian wife and black foster sons like the “slavers” treated their slaves i.e. like property. Then of course he starts with the name calling.

          You must remember all people who disagree with CRT, BLM, the 1619 Project or any other anti white racist ideas according to The Elwood are the real racists. Hell, to that idiot I’m a White supremacist.

          He’s hiding something and he’s too cowardly to even explain what it is. But I know he benefitted heartily from exercising White privilege yet calls all of us the privileged ones. Go figure.

    The people it is going to hurt the most in Atlanta; ballpark venders, street venders, bartenders/wait-staff for restaurants and hotels, thugs that break into cars at the lots during the game, call girls/boys working the event hotels, and local politicians taking kickbacks to get “special” permits expedited.

    This is Atlanta. If you see a smoker in a gas station parking lot you can get some of the best BBQ made.
