A coalition of black community leaders and business owners ragged on Stacey Abrams, who still hasn’t stopped crying about her humiliating loss to Brian Kemp.
In a press conference called by the Black Americans for a Better Future Education Fund and the Georgia Black Republican Council to remind liberals that the Black vote isn’t one size fits all and that Abrams does not represent the Black community.
Raynard Jackson, chairman of the Black Americans for a Better Future Education Fund said:
“Stacey Abrams doesn’t speak for the black community; she speaks for the white liberals who bankroll her political ambitions. Stacey Abrams doesn’t actually care about making it easier for black people to vote; she only cares about making it easier for Democrats to vote.”
Participants in the news conference point out that Abrams and Democrats including Joe Biden have been spreading misinformation on the new Georgia voting laws.
The law does not cut the hours of advance voting, it actually increases it and allows for it in the evenings and weekends when it is more convenient. What the law does do is make it more difficult to cheat using mail-in voting.
Black business leaders are not happy about the boycotts that came out of their lies. In Atlanta, where the all-star game was to be played, 50% of the people are Black but the new location in Denver, Colorado is one of the whitest cities in America.
Moving the game cost Black Businessmen a fortune and they are none too happy about it.
“Frankly, it’s insulting that corporate leaders were so willing to go along with her narrative of black helplessness, and it’s patronizing that they thought they were advancing the interest of black voters by opposing this common-sense effort to ensure free and fair elections for all Georgians,” said Lisa Babbage of the Georgia Black Republican Council.
Abrams later implored corporations and consumers in late March not to boycott Georgia over the election law, stating in a video that boycotts would hurt black Georgians the most. But community and business leaders blamed Abrams during Tuesday’s press conference for contributing to the boycott rhetoric.
Major League Baseball, for example, announced it would move the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver in protest of the law. The move, which is estimated to cost Atlanta more than $100 million in lost revenue, was criticized by black business owners.
