Its not about race; its about money, and a BIG ASS stadium.

The new stadium is supposed to seat fewer people than Turner Field.

You're missing the point...It's not a "BIG ASS stadium" as in a stadium that is big-ass. It's a stadium that is built for big asses. Big, American, fat, southern-fried, cottage-cheese asses.

Well, they're moving to a county that I choose to believe without researching is named after notorious racist Ty Cobb, so take that

macadamnut: The decision to allow people to continue living in Georgia after 1864 was racist.

Hey, we tried. We sent Sherman. They just rebuilt.

Well, let's see...the Marlins decided to build their stadium in Little Havana instead of moving it further North into Broward or Palm Beach county.

That seemed to work out real well for them.

If Blacks would start addressing the problems in their community, instead of blaming every problem on white folks, you won't have baseball teams, or everything else, moving out of black areas into white areas

And, the White Guilt Liberals who pander do not help, either.  There is no group of dumber buttfarks than White Guilt Liberals.  You're not helping

Time for folks to grow up.  Get a grip on reality

cman: dr_blasto: cman: Let me say something else, too

If this incident can't even open your eyes to the racist moral panic then I am afraid you are a lost soul

I 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.

I read that initially as directly contradicting your previous statement and thought that maybe Maine had legalized pot.
