    Them's fighting words.

    Does your yankee ass not know what a cobbler is? It's the easiest and greatest - Southern fruit (peach, apricot, blackberry, etc...) served warm with homemade ice cream - cake that you poor city boys would ever dream of.

    Rather than repeatedly throwing around the label of Jim Crow, Biden could explain why he believes Georgia is beyond any reasonable (if different) approach in comparison to other states like Delaware, New York or Colorado. Indeed, no one appears eager to have that debate in the media. The coverage is as shallow as a soundbite. The Georgia law is now a Jim Crow law by pure repetition rather than any explanation in the coverage. Given the horrible history of Jim Crow, such a claim warrants explanation — not simply use as a handy slogan or political attack.

    One obvious question is why there is a difference between baseball and golf when it comes to anti-racism boycotts. If Georgia is back to being a Jim Crow state and a baseball boycott is warranted, why does Biden given the Masters a mulligan?

    Multiple people have explained it here. Don't blame others for your lack of intellectual curiosity.

    Those other states don't have a mechanism that allows their partisan state legislators to replace election officials in voting districts when they don't like their decision of approving the results in said district.

    Good **** an actual debate on what is in these laws and why they are bad instead of just shouting Jim Crow.

    That is not the point. GA is a red state. Once the Blue surge falls back, nobody will care what happens in GA like they have in the past.

    Democrats did the same in FL. Republicans dont give a **** about anyone and they dont deny it. Democrats need to stop pretending they do.

    You mean when a state passes a voting bill that allows gop state legislators to change election officials for voting districts they didn't like the results in, democrats are going to complain?

    Wut? That's crazy.

    Democrats have been complaining about things like gerrymandering and closing down polling stations in urban minority neighborhoods in southern states for years now. I don't see where you are seeing the logical inconsistencies

    Biden single handedly moved the MLB all star game.

    Good to know.
