Yesterday (Friday, 4.2) Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred announced that the 2021 All-Star Game won’t happen in Atlanta — a fuck-you response to Governor Brian Kemp and the Georgia voting law he and his Jim Crow cronies recently enacted, one that is largely aimed at disenfranchising Black voters.

Kemp howled and harumphed, of course. “Yesterday, Major League Baseball caved to fear and lies from liberal activists,” he proclaimed. “In the middle of a pandemic, Major League Baseball put the wishes of Stacey Abrams and Joe Biden ahead of the economic well-being of hard-working Georgians who were counting on the All-Star Game for a paycheck.”
