The Black Americans for a Better Future (BAFBF) hosted a powerful press conference in Atlanta Georgia led by Raynard Jackson. The subject of the press conference was the impact MLB’s decision to remove the All-Star Game from Atlanta was having on black businesses.

These brave black patriots called out Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, and Major League Baseball for failing black business owners in Atlanta. They praised Home Depot for refusing to fold to “wokeness.” They called out Stacey Abrams and Al Sharpton for lying about the election law. They called out the Fake News for never having anyone impacted by the decision on their shows.

We hope you will watch this event and pass this on to others.

Key Notes:

— Estimated that Cobb County will lose north of $100 M in economic activity as a result

— Atlanta metro area has a 30% black population; Denver has a 9% black population

— It is easier to vote in Atlanta than in Denver

— Tourism is the number one industry in Cobb County 

— Braves legend Hank Aaron, a Georgia baseball hero, was supposed to be honored through the 2021 MLB All-Star Game. He passed away in Atlanta in January 2021

As per the Daily Caller:

“Stacey Abrams doesn’t speak for the black community; she speaks for the white liberals who bankroll her political ambitions,” said Raynard Jackson, chairman of the Black Americans for a Better Future Education Fund. “Stacey Abrams doesn’t actually care about making it easier for black people to vote; she only cares about making it easier for Democrats to vote.”

Participants said Abrams and other prominent Democrats, including President Joe Biden, promoted false claims about provisions of the state’s Election Integrity Act such as voter ID requirements and early voting rules.

Democrats and Atlanta-based companies like Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola also compared the election law to Jim Crow, arguing it would disenfranchise racial minorities and amounted to voter suppression. 

“Frankly, it’s insulting that corporate leaders were so willing to go along with her narrative of black helplessness, and it’s patronizing that they thought they were advancing the interest of black voters by opposing this common-sense effort to ensure free and fair elections for all Georgians,” said Lisa Babbage of the Georgia Black Republican Council.

Abrams later implored corporations and consumers in late March not to boycott Georgia over the election law, stating in a video that boycotts would hurt black Georgians the most, but the community and business leaders blamed Abrams during Tuesday’s press conference for contributing to the boycott rhetoric.

Major League Baseball, for example, announced it would move the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver in protest of the law. The move, which is estimated to cost Atlanta more than $100 million in lost revenue, was criticized by black business owners.
