The recently passed Georgia voting law has been a hot topic of discussion and has led to much debate between conservatives and democrats.
Just yesterday, the MLB announced they were moving the All-Star game away from Atlanta after backlash from civil rights groups due to the voting laws which led to people on both sides of the aisle arguing on the Internet.
Here is the full release from MLB. The money line from commission Rob Manfred: “Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.” pic.twitter.com/3tghCUDM47

During the pregame of the Final Four game between Baylor and Houston, Charles Barkley shared his thoughts on the state of America’s heated political climate and he blasted politicians for dividing the country.
Man, I think most white people and black people are great people. I really believe that in my heart, but I think our system is set up where our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, are designed to make us not like each other so they can keep their grasp of money and power. They divide and conquer. I truly believe in my heart most white people and black people are awesome people, but we’re so stupid following our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, and their only job is, ‘Hey, let’s make these people not like each other. We don’t live in their neighborhoods, we all got money, let’s make the whites and blacks not like each other, let’s make rich people and poor people not like each other, let’s scramble the middle class. I truly believe that in my heart.
