Economists predict Major League Baseball’s decision to move its coveted All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver will likely cost local businesses -many owned by minorities- at least $100 million in lost revenue.
“They note the move will deal an economic blow to Atlanta, which is 51% Black, and provide a boost to Colorado’s capital, which is only 9% Black, according to U.S. Census figures,” reports Fox News.
“Democrats and voting rights advocates argue that Georgia’s new voting law, signed by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp on March 25, would make it harder for people, particularly those of color, to vote,” adds Fox.
