BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — Georgia’s voting law is facing backlash from a number of corporations, including Major League Baseball, Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola. 

On Tuesday, MLB announced they are moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Georgia in response to the voting restrictions that Governor Brian Kemp signed into law March 25.

 

Dr. Kaye weighs in on voter suppression and “using the power of our dollar to change this country”. 

 

Dr. Kaye is also joined by Baltimore-area attorney Kenneth Ravenell to discuss Anton Black and how his death relates to the trial of Derek Chauvin. 

Black was an unarmed 19-year-old Black man who died after being pinned to the ground by police outside his home in Greensboro, Maryland in 2018.
