Somebody didn’t get the message.
The New York Times is reporting that the neutral site for a potential playoff between the Kansas City Chiefs (go, Andy Reid) and the Buffalo Bills (go, Damar Hamlin) will be Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
That game would be played Sunday, Jan. 29, at 6:30 p.m., should those teams advance.
You mean the Atlanta that lost the 2021 All-Star game because the race hysterics believed that a recent Georgia law suppressed Black voter turnout? That racist Atlanta?
Here’s the funny part. Black voter turnout increased after the law was passed. (The law, incidentally, is less restrictive than Delaware’s, where President Joe Biden lives.) The Georgia law expanded the Black vote.
Just in passing, Altlanta suffered great economic harm. A majority of Atlantans are minorities, so guess who got hurt?
The woke race hustlers created nonwhite victims.
Interestingly, African-American Times reporter Emmanuel Morgan chose not to mention the removed All-Star game in his dispatch.
Does this mean all is forgiven, and pro sports recognize that the voter law changes were not racist, after all?
Or that the NFL, like writer Morgan, forgot the All-Star game controversy?
Or that there will be a storm in the twitterverse and the NFL will reverse itself?
Hopefully, not the latter.
