It really sounds like the MLB doesn't want us to watch baseball.
Or they think we're all idiots.
Major League Baseball has reportedly made the decision to host the 2021 All Star Game in Colorado after caving to pressure from the political Left to boycott Georgia after Georgia passed a new election security law, which included having to include a driver’s license number when voting by mail.
“Coors Field in Denver has been chosen to host this year’s All-Star Game,” ESPN reported. “It will mark the second time the homer-friendly home of the Colorado Rockies will host the Midsummer Classic. The American League beat the National League 13-8 at Coors in 1998.”
However, reporters quickly noted that Colorado already has voter ID laws and that the the league was moving to a less diverse area.
“Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box,” MLB Commissioner of Baseball Robert D. Manfred, Jr. said in a statement last week. “Fair access to voting continues to have our game’s unwavering support.”
The Colorado Secretary of State’s website states:
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.
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.
