  1. Having to show an ID to vote is racist. Everybody knows black people can’t get an ID. Glad they moved it to Colorado. You still have to show an ID to vote in Colorado but they have less black people so they are less affected. Great job.

  2. Not just the id… it’s closing voting sites, limiting early voting and mail in voting, and because the lines will get longer , you can go to jail to passing out water and snacks There’s also the changing of authority to CHANGE THE RESULT OF ACTUAL VOTING COUNTS by people in state government.

  3. So you have to have Id to vote ?
    Hmm 🤔 what to prove your a legit resident of the state and country wow makes perfectly good sense what doesn't make sense is a president that is telling big corporations to boycott the state and spreading false information!!!
    C'mon Joe get your sh*t together

  4. Good job. You've moved it to a state that is a fraction of the black population doesn't allow food in lines and has a less early days of voting than Georgia does

  5. MLB grievances? Why would MLB have a grievance regarding voting laws? This is hyperbole and nothing more, it is certainly part of this "cancel culture". This situation is a self-created conflict, Costas just pitted Whites and Blacks, in baseball, against each other. By the way, what part of the voting law is being challenged?

  6. So, let me get this straight, MLB is pulling out of Atlanta and taking the millions that would go to the local economy (51% black/40% white) to play in Denver (10% black/76% white) because of (non-existent) racism in a voting bill.

    Oh, the GD irony of it all.

  7. Will listen no more. How is the new GA voting law, ultimately restrictive to legal registered voters, regardless of color, etc.? So far, you have given no specifics.

  8. Its not restrictive it expands it and disallows no ID requirement. Deleware is more strict than Ga. Your lying about its intention. We boycott MLB and will just walk away if you really want us too. Players go ahead jump on board and your going to lose your pay.

  9. I love how people accuse Republicans of being racist, while simultaneously saying black people aren't smart enough to follow simple rules. Come on people, voting isn't something we do every other Tuesday.

  10. "…makes it harder for people of color to vote". So Lemon, are you pushing the narrative that African American's can't get IDs? That they can't bring their own water to the poll? That they won't be able to make it to extended early voting? None of these things have anything to do with skin color. Get a grip and read the bill.

  11. The MLB requires you to show an ID when you pick up tickets to a BB game, but we don't need one to vote? The left truly doesn't see their hypocrisy. They will say the MLB is private, they can ask for ID if they want. What about a private Liquor store? I have to have ID to buy liquor, cuz, uh, the law says so. Idiots!

  12. the Georgia law that requires people to have ID to vote makes it harder for people of color to vote? Are you saying black people including yourself cannot read/write and are too mentally impaired to have an ID inorder to vote? You are the textbook definition of a real racist, Marthur Luther King would be turning in his grave if he found out how ignorant and easily susceptible to brainwashing/propaganda today's society and generation is. May he rest in peace. The Media Is The Matrix – The Media Is The Real Virus, and too many people are trapped in it.
    Please education yourself and you will know the truth. I was in that mental prison too, until I got out, so you can do it too. "The Truth Shall Set You Free" I believe in you.

  13. Fraud never existed in their 2020 GA elections. This Law allegedly aims to bring voting and election integrity? But they had determined there was no fraud, and therefore no lost integrity. The majority of Folks just voted Trump out! Too many lies, nonchalance about our dying of covid19, his deals, and govt inaction.
