ClintBartonWannabe: cman: Oh FFS...THE BRAVES MOVED BECAUSE ATLANTA REFUSED TO GIVE IN TO THEIR shiatTY DEMANDSIts not about race; its about money, and a BIG ASS stadium.The new stadium is supposed to seat fewer people than Turner Field.
macadamnut: The decision to allow people to continue living in Georgia after 1864 was racist.
cman: dr_blasto: cman: Let me say something else, tooIf this incident can't even open your eyes to the racist moral panic then I am afraid you are a lost soulI don't even know what this means.I can say, the blackmail scams by major league sports wherein they manage to claw money out of taxpayers who - eagerly - throw that cash at the teams is funny. I've read about plenty of splits (stadium costs) where the split was 50-50. 50% taxpayer funded, 50% funded with money the team was given by municipalities through outright cash handoffs, tax breaks and other similar grifts.Many are seeing racism in things that normal people wouldn't consider racist.This is a good example of this.They see racism because thats what they want or expect to see.
