  • Trae got in some great points about how this move punishes the people in GA who are against voter suppression of any type. Well, sorry to break it to ya Trae, but that goes for every progressive or liberal in the country who lives in a red or blue swing state. We all get the short end of the stick because of what state we happen to reside in, our political beliefs be damned.

  • Dem no different than republican. They'll turn on you on a whim. Your right. Punish the one who brought you to the ball! Typical politicians. All of them are so corrupt it's sad. Screw em all. Vote these pricks into oblivion. Find decent people to represent us not rich pricks.

  • "We thought Georgia good, but, Georgia BAD :(" Yeah same thing when certain people were like "I feel sooooooo bad for Texans but maybe they deserve it because they voted for that government" Like Gerrymandering doesn't exist as the go-to ace in the pocket everyone agrees to pretend isn't a disgusting loophole around any semblance of democracy, why is this still allowed to be a thing. Remember those GOP maps showing how red the US supposedly is? Remember how much unoccupied dirt they claimed? I hate this

  • Nah, these people are not being "hurt" by missing out on a completely pointless baseball game and some coke (which they're choosing not to drink). Meanwhile, people are actually getting hurt by these laws. History has proven that in a capitalist society, money talks, so I hate to disagree with you but this is EXACTLY how you fight these laws. When the NCAA tournament threatened to boycott NC, that state changed their tune real fast and the people didn't suffer. The responsibility for limiting damage to the people falls on the government who just passed these laws, not the corporations trying to stop them.

  • Instead of following the “tail” on this, i.e., complaining AFTER the fact...we need to start getting ahead of these “neanderthal-republican-knuckle-dragging representatives” who are pulling us back...then we WON’T HAVE TO BOYCOTT. Where were these multinational corporations when THEY KNEW these voter suppression tactics were in the pipeline? Covering their ass-trays.

  • I understand what you are saying but let’s look back in history. People boycotted the bus and it was a hardship for everyone especially the poor who needed transportation to go to work and it lasted for a long period of time. Because of the boycott, laws were changed for the better. I feel that our society wants and demands change but we are not willing to make the sacrifices that will make change happen like society would do in the past. I mean we protest for awhile and then it fizzles out and there is no change just people feeling defeated. Politicians know this. All they have to do is wait it out fir a few weeks or sometimes just days. They use are unwillingness to make sacrifices or to be inconvenienced to benefit their agendas which do not represent the majority of the people. Therefore, there is no change.

  • Reminds me of the massive boycott of Apartheid era South Africa, which lasted decades. The people who suffered most were the 90% of the population who are Black. In the end, THEY overthrew the Apartheid government, not those Western countries that were boycotting SA.

  • Let's to the base of the problem - people are easily led. They're even easier to lead when you make things simple black/white, right/wrong, left/right, pro/con, coke/pepsi. The majority of people do not want to analyze the issues, consider the nuance, and make thoughtful decisions. This goes for BOTH parties. "My side good, your side bad" That's what average people want. They want a popular figure to tell them what to think/do. They want to fit in as a member of a tribe. They won't admit to this because it would show them to be mindless followers, and they don't want to see themselves that way. Until we get past tribalism, we will continue to do what we're doing...

  • Do you know why boycotts are inconvenient? Because they are supposed to be. If these companies had not made the statements and decisions that they had made, would there be any discussion and loud noises regarding these negative and borderline illegal laws that were being made? Hard to say, but I doubt it. Real pressure has been placed in a real way where it counts, in the state's pocket books. Yes, the state is gonna suffer, and yes individual citizens of the state are going to suffer. And they are going to make a lot of noise and hopefully there will be some redress. But it won't be forcing the All Star game to be in Atlanta, and Coca-Cola is not going to be hurt by local boycotts. And I doubt major international conglomerate Coca-Cola will be hurt even IF Republicans turn against them. 25% of Americans identify as Republican. If HALF of them prefer Coca-Cola to Pepsi as it is, that's 12.5% of Americans that are Republican Coca-Cola drinkers. If even 80% of THOSE truly Boycott Coca-Cola, that is only 10% of Americans that will boycott Coca-Cola, potentially, and likely way less than that. Now in 2019, North American sales for Coca-Cola accounted for 31.9% of its total global revenue, and "Mexicans are the largest consumers of Coke." ("Fun Facts", market.us/statistics/food-and-beverage-companies/coca-cola-company/#:~:text=Coca%2DCola%20has%20a%20product,years%20to%20try%20them%20all) So that being said... Republican boycotters of Coca-Cola won't really hurt. Coca-Cola decrying voter suppression laws stands to make a pretty big splash. Republicans are hoping that if they tantrum loud enough, the grown-ups will cave to try to appeal to them.

  • It’s just the corporations speaking out. And the GOP isn’t really going to punish the corporations, much as they squeal. Mainly the MLB took away the all-star game. You and Stacey Abrams are right, but I don’t think an actual boycott of the state will happen.

    KamwickKamwickDay ago
  • While I agree - and don't even want to punish the trumpians; stupid isn't a sin (though the racists can go fk themselves) - anyway, while I agree, there don't seem to be many other weapons to use; and if you don't have the vote then absolutely nothing else matters - that needs to be the only target you have in mind while it's up in the air like the gop just threw it. Also, that sports thingy is high-profile, so packs a real punch and puts a highlight on the issue that other companies couldn't command. Though, if you and Stacey Abrams are both for still fighting before boycotts, then I would have to stand with you - because I do respect you very much and that woman is plain gold.

  • Georgia ain't giving up Coke. They just have to run a "4 for $10"/ 12 packs at Kroger. Done! And...yeah- MLB bitch slapped Kemp- but honestly...it needed to happen. The guy is crooked af. People may not follow politics- but they will follow money. And when you screw with their money...oh yeah...that's an attention git-er! Love it or Hate it...it's a conversation about bigger problems. Long overdue conversations. Luv u Trae!

  • Well, sometimes one has to make a point to make sure this kind of BS doesn’t happen again. Trust me, those GA based companies didn’t do it because they’re liberal. They took a look at their books and realized that they would lose more money by pissing off the entire country than just the state of GA. The south hasn’t learned its lesson. Y’all lost the civil war and y’all keep holding on to it. Let’s be honest, I don’t blame the south for pulling this crap year after year. I blame the rest of the country for allowing it to keep happening. We Americans are too spoiled and we don’t learn by compromising, we want our way and our way only. Guess what? There are consequences and such is life.

  • Kudos for noting Stacy Abram's position on boycotts, for real. I applaud MLB and the NBA for the stand they're taking, but yeah it does hurt the economy of people who are indeed on our side. Georgia has a real chance to go full blue, especially if the state legislature can flip. I suppose the only line of equity is that, Atlanta's (because it really is primarily Atlanta) loss will be someone else's gain, and they matter as well.

  • The republicans have admitted that they do not represent the majority of Americans because their stand is undemocratic, bigoted, racist and criminal. I agree with you that it would serve Georgia and the US better if companies targeted politicians and organizations rather then the whole state. Stop giving money to politicians that do not embrace Democracy and Equality don't punish the whole populace.

  • Right... the state will suffer greatly. And it is unlikely to touch the politicians whose reps are so far down the toilet they will never fish them out again. There are some things that don’t recycle well... Trump, Lindsey, Guilani, Gaetz. Greene, McConnell, McCarthy, seriously. Is it worth it being a ho for a defacto unAmerican traitorous party? Boycotts are not fair since the pressure applied does not affect those dolts.

  • I havny once felt like we lost Georgia. I knew this whole thing would happen before trump even lost the election. I knew once mail in ballots became a talking point. They have work to do there and if people think the presidential election is what mattered they are wrong. The Republicans losing office showed that voters turn out to lose the senate is next. They lost the house and they WILL lose the senate next voter turnout. With or without these new laws they will still lose. While Republicans are busy making it harder to be a democracy the dems are actually doing their jobs and it shows. No worries squad, another speed bump on a straight road is only there to draw awareness, make you slow down and pay attention do you can see the nice open safe road ahead. Lets get it!

  • Even Trump couldn't boycott Coca-Cola for a hot minute - as proved by his woeful attempt to hide his coke bottle behind a lamp in his office photoshoot a short while later. (He'd probably have got away with it as well, if he hadn't been wearing such a nasty, shit-eating grin that people were desperately trying to look ANYWHERE ELSE except at his orange face when confronted with said photo.) But... really? BOYCOTT Georgia? Sound to me like it's one of the best states to be in right now - especially if you want your vote to be fairly counted.

  • Hey, I think you're great, and agree with you 90% of the time. However, if major companies come out against what Georgia did, perhaps other states such as Nevada, Flori duh, etc. may think twice before implementing their own "stop the vote" legislation... it would have been nice if MLB, Coke and other companies had spoken out sooner. No easier answers, but keep up the fight! Love your videos!
