This is just poetic.
Major League Baseball, trying to be woke, announced that they're pulling the All-Star Game out of Atlanta to protest against Georgia's new voter-ID law. Because, you know, according to lefties, having to show an ID to prove that you are who you say you are before casting a vote is somehow worse than Jim Crow laws.
Well ESPN is now reporting that they're moving the All-Star-Game to Coors Field in Denver.
BUUUUTTT as you already know because you read the headline, Denver already has the voter ID laws MLB was protesting by pulling out of Atlanta.
All voters who vote at the polls must provide identification. If you are voting by mail for the first time, you may also need to provide a photocopy of your identification when you return your mail ballot.
Wait, isn't that worse than Jim Crow???
Many were also quick to point out that both the city and state where the game is being moved to, Denver, Colorado, are both significantly less racially diverse than Atlanta, Georgia.
- Colorado is 86.9% white and 4.6% black.
- Georgia is 60.2% white and 32.6% black.
- Denver is 76.1% white and 9.2% black.
- Atlanta is 40.9% white and 51% black.
The county where the game was going to be held in Georgia stated that it was going to lose more than $100 million from the league deciding to pull out of the area.
