You may have noticed our new banner.
The man in our new banner is Gov. Eugene Talmadge, the Wild Man from Sugar Creek, who was elected governor of Georgia four times in the Jim Crow era. Jim Crow is back in Georgia, baby … this time on steroids. We’ve surpassed the Georgia of Tom Watson, Hoke Smith and Eugene Talmadge.
“Major League Baseball announced Friday that it is moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to a new Georgia law that has civil rights groups concerned about its potential to restrict voting access for people of color.
In a statement, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said the league is “finalizing a new host city and details about these events will be announced shortly.”
The 2021 MLB draft, a new addition to All-Star Game festivities this year, will also be relocated. …”
This makes a lot of sense.
You can’t bring back literal “white supremacy” in Atlanta in 2021 without facing serious consequences. The MLB couldn’t stand idly by while all black people in Georgia were disenfranchised by the new election integrity law that is worse than Jim Crow. The words of a president matter, folks.
This will show all those people who live in Georgia who voted for Trump, but who don’t live in Metro Atlanta where they voted for Joe Biden who is boss. By voting for Joe Biden and dumping Donald Trump, Atlanta is losing the MLB Draft and All-Star Game. It is not “The City That Is Too Busy To Hate” anymore. It is the city of retrograde suburban hatemongers who are worse than the Jim Crow South.
I grew up in Alabama on the other side of the Chattahoochee River. I was over in Georgia the other day and it didn’t look to me like Jim Crow had returned or that it was on steroids. In fact, it looked like just an ordinary day. The president of the United States and the real “journalists” are reporting that Jim Crow 2.0 has arrived there though since the election integrity law was passed.
