Believing that the effects of 400yr of discrimination and oppression will disappear without active intervention is magical thinking.Using discrimination to fight discrimination is obviously retarded.
That's not really what happened.Last week the President said the MLB All Star Game should be moved out of Georgia in response to the new Georgia voting law being passed. Costing Atlanta, the surrounding businesses and communities, and so on an estimated $100 million. Yesterday when pressed about moving The Masters golf tournament from Georgia the President said people should be cautious about doing such a thing because of the economic impact it could have on the community and working people in that area. Wut?
He also has a lot of buddies who are members of Augusta National....That's not really what happened.
Biden supported the MLB Game move after that was started by the pro athletes. He supports them using their clout for social/political pressure and change, job losses to the area be damned. It really wasn't his idea or fight.
He was more ambiguous on the Masters move, acknowledging up front that the profit making companies involved in the Masters will be moving a lot of jobs if they do that, which may have came off a bit whiny. Again, Joe didn't make that news, he just reported it.
Both events will have a large ripple effect but one is noble the other is not
It's not like the golfers are going to ask for it to be moved. Pro caddies want it moved to cool Michigan j/kI find the possibility and/or discussion of The Masters being moved to another course other than Augusta offensive. They won’t move over this. They are the most backwards of all the backwards shit that is Georgia.
