Republicans are slamming Major League Baseball (MLB) for relocating their All-Star Game to Denver, which has far fewer black individuals and business than Atlanta.
According to Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), black persons make up only 9.2 percent of Denver, whereas Atlanta is 51 percent black. Scott called the disparity between the cities a result of the “woke” folk.
Georgia: Voter ID, 17 days of early voting.
Colorado: Voter ID, 15 days of early voting.
Atlanta is 51% Black.
Denver is 9.2% Black.
The Wokes are at it again, folks.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) pointed to the fact MLB moved from a city where “46% of all businesses are minority owned… to a city where only 23% of all businesses are minority owned.”
