Abandoning Turner Field: Blacks, Crime, and the Visible Black Hand of Economics Push the Atlanta Braves to Cobb County


Well, you should have known the person who wrote Black Mecca Down would have a thing or two to say about the Atlanta Braves abandoning Turner Field in downtown Atlanta for suburban Cobb County. In the latest VDare.com piece, PK writes. [Not So Fast, Atlanta Braves! Obama’s DOJ Could Nix Flight To Cobb County, 11-26-13]:
The Atlanta Braves are leaving downtown Atlanta because of black crime. It's that simple.  
Like millions of Americans, the Atlanta Braves major league baseball franchise want to flee vibrant black diversity to move to a whiter, wealthier neighborhood. But will Eric Holder’s Justice Department let them? 
The Braves have just announced they will abandon central-Atlanta Turner Field. [Braves will move to Cobb County in shocking move,  MLB.com, November 12, 2013]Various reasons have been given, but that fact is that Turner Field is located in one of the worst neighborhoods in America. [Turner Field in a 'dangerous' neighborhood, by C. Trent Rosecrans, CBS Sports, October 4, 2010] 
Instead, starting in the 2017 season, the Braves plan to move to Cobb County, GA.. Cobb County is one of the country’s most conservative areas, having once been represented by Newt Gingrich. 
It is also home to the region’s largest concentration of Braves fans, so a new stadium will put them closer to the “geographic center” of their fan base, i.e. white, middle-class suburbanites. [The Atlanta Braves are moving to Cobb County and everyone is kind of stunned by Rebecca Burns, Atlanta Magazine, November 11, 2013]The team’s proposed new home has an almost $40,000 household income and a poverty rate over 30% lower than the neighborhood surrounding Turner field. [Braves planning new suburban stadium in 2017, by Paul Newberry, AJC.com, November 11, 2013] 
It’s about class. But it’s also about race. The team’s ticket-buying fan base (as illustrated in this ‘heat-map’ of ticket-sales released by the Braves) is in the areas of Metro Atlanta that are demographically the whitest. Coincidentally, many of these areas also wish to secede from majority black Atlanta and Fulton County. In contrast, Turner Field is located in the heart of zip code 30315, which boasts a population that is 78 percent black and only 13 percent white. In early 2013, NeighborhoodScout.com rated one of the communities within this zip code the 9th most dangerous neighborhood in all of America. 
Additionally, part of the cost of doing business in a black neighborhood is the shakedown money to the “community,” in this case, a non-profit called Summerhill Neighborhood Development Corporation. The Corporation received millions of dollars, but no one can seem to figure out where the money went in a neighborhood which has an abundance of nothing but vacant lots and decaying homes. [Questions raised about millions spent in troubled Turner Field neighborhood, by Doug Richards, 11 Alive, November 13, 2013]
Read the rest at VDare.com, but be sure to comment on it here.

This story is, as all metro Atlanta readers know, fundamentally about race and crime. Former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker, no stranger to controversy, put it succinctly in a column lauding the organization for leaving Turner Field:
An article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, with the headline “Stadium move angers its neighbors” perfectly described the type of community the citizens who live near Turner Field have created, a neighborhood fans of the Braves must endure when they venture to a game. 
It’s a story that sums up more accurately the real reason the Braves are moving.Bill Torpy reported: 
"It was a busy morning at Joe’s Laundry & Cleaners, a forlorn, fortress-like business in the shadow of the now-doomed Turner Field. 
Proprietor Paul Kwan was doing what his family has done since 1945 – making folks in the Summerhill neighborhood look sharp. And customers like Herman Lawson flowed in and out, still reeling from the news their beloved Braves were abandoning them to move north to Cobb County. 
“It’s going to hurt; it’s going to take a lot of money out of the neighborhood,” said Lawson, who played ball on a field where The Ted now sits. “We’ll miss the revenue, the excitement, the activity, the fireworks, the pride. It’s the Atlanta Braves in our neighborhood.” 
But, he added, “We have to face reality; they’re moving because of crime.”Kwan nodded from behind the heavy metal screen at his counter that makes him look like a jailbird. …"
A heavy metal screen at the counter of a laundry/cleaning business, to protect the owner and his employees from both his customers and the residents of the community surrounding Turner Field? That is the environment Atlanta Braves’ fans must endure before and most notably AFTER an evening of cheering on their hometown heroes. 
Does any more reasoning need be explained to detail why the Braves are leaving Turner Field and downtown Atlanta and heading off to the affluence and safety of Cobb County than the precautions and security a business owner must take to protect his property and employees? At the end of the day the Atlanta Braves organization and Joe’s Laundry and Cleaners are not too dissimilar.
No. 

No more reasoning is necessary, Mr. Rocker. 

Like it or not, the Black Mecca is going down. The key to the unraveling of Black-Run America (BRA) still rests in a city the Union forces burnt to the ground more than 150 years ago.

Cobb County 94.6% white in 1980 and now (in 2013) only 55.4% white.
There's a website called DeadMalls.com that lists malls that have been murdered in cold blood by the "diversity." If there were a site call DeadCities.com or DeadCounties.com, Cobb county would definitely be on the list.
The Atlanta Braves moving there is kind of pointless~ sort of like people on the Titanic climbing to get away from the rising water that will eventually drown them.
In a few years, the area around the Stadium in Cobb County will be just like the area the team is trying to flee.
There will be no escape from the Black Undertow until this nation regains it's sanity and returns to segregation.

The move would be futile. As you have probably noticed Negroes either surround or take over areas important to Whites. Over The Rhine in Cincinnati is one of the most historic areas in White America with close to a thousand historic buildings. The Negroes now occupy it.

Richmond the former capital of the CSA is now uninhabitable for Whites. Negroes have occupied it.

Philadelphia with its Revolutionary heritage is now a Black City. Occupied.

Major universities across the country are islands in a Negro sea.

For the Braves to move to Cobb County merely means that Negroes will immediately begin invading the area to surround the new stadium to prevent Whites having any sense of security or enjoyment.

The Negro problem can no longer be evaded. It must be faced,

I was 24 @ 1997 and purchased a "crack house" in this area for $43K. It was a crack house because the walls were black in the living room and dining room and needed a major renovation. I lasted a year there in the hood and quit claimed it away to the owner. I kept a PO box because there was stuff always happening to my mail. Always, some knucklehead was knocking on my door at 11:30 asking me if I wanted to "buy a grill or a ladder", it was always a neighbor's grill, tool, ladder. I saw a black, older, homeless man so drunk, he stumbled on the street and hit his head on the curb and died right there in front of my home from cracking his head open. It used to be called Capital Ave but the name changed to Hank Aaron Blvd. I met up with several white folks that wanted to purchase homes like mine and fix up at the Home Depot. We swapped ghetto stories. I went to a community empowerment meeting where we met policemen and leaders of the community. The zone 3 at the time were around Bill Campbell’s http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Campbell_%28mayor%29 era and most APD doubled as pimps, dealers, preachers, or some other twisted craft. These empowerment meetings seemed to focus on blackie getting grant monies (like $20K- $100K ) and promising to create greenspace or create an community art program, or recreation program. All monies were spent, nothing materialized. No one was held accountable. Again, I only lasted a year in there.... fed up with ghetto shenanigans and just the act of leaving my driveway for work and passing by a gas station to the freeway with torn up mattresses, a ghetto Ms Winners chicken place and a drive through liquor store was taxing on my psyche. It was too much for my young, idealistic brain. Yes, in 1998, I moved out, I followed the property and study Real Estate markets, turns out my former $43K home, was appraised very artificially at $220K in 2005, I laughed and started following trending for 30315. Good riddance. Funny, I don’t know if it was that dangerous, I have been to the “Bluff” before and the West side of Atlanta to me is more gritty than the Eastside where the Ted is.
I live in the nice part of Cobb now, the East side. The stadium is the lower east side but was also a former neighborhood. I would like to attend a Braves game. The taxes for Cobb for the new stadium are to be for hotels and car rental costs, but I know that Cobb government and Councilmen have not been handed the black plague like Fulton or Dekalb.

panjoomby says "perhaps the negro league can be revived & play their games at turner field".

This seems like a good idea. Especially if applied to pro basketball. With the league currently 95% black, many white people have tuned out. And pro football is going down the same path.

I say this without a hit of racism and no malice towards black people at all. Why can't there be a professional league for whites only? Watching old college football games is enjoyable because most or all of the players were white. The game looked different.

Glib sports commentators say in response, "Yeah, it was slower." But speed is relative. If all the white guys run a forty yard dash one tenth of a second slower than black guys, that in itself wouldn't change the appearance of the game since they're all slower by the same amount. Besides, whites have faster reaction times than blacks, so that would tend to even things out.

No, something else is different. You see it in all white European basketball teams, who play a different game than that of the NBA.

Let's have some TRUE diversity. Let there be all white leagues and any others that want to organize around whatever issue floats their boat.

PK,

Interesting and thought provoking article. One thing, as you note at the end:

>>"I’m betting the Atlanta Braves will open the 2017 season in Turner Field. Obama’s Minority Occupation Government will make sure of that."




Well, this is perhaps true. However. To ride out the storm, wiser heads within the organization can simply play the waiting game with the current administration and simply wait until it leaves office in 2017.

Bottom line: This public bruhaha has merely pushed the proposed timetable of new stadium in 2017 about 3-5yrs into the future, say between 2018-2023.

Also, these next few years the organization can also look into a bidding war with other

Who said the team has to play in Cobb County? What about the County further north, Cherokee County (2013 it is 81%W 5 about 5%Blk)

Also, with the irony that the Braves playing in Cherokee County. Might even go the full PC route by naming the new stadium "Cherokee Stadium"

Bottom line: Cherokee County the next county to the north is even farther away from Atlanta metro and certainly isn't easily accessible by MARTA. Threfore, the local businesses and seasonal ballpark workers would naturally be hired from the local vicinity (e.g. from Cherokee County)

All they have to do is basically outwait them. They leave office in 3yrs. Use this time wisely to look over the options available by building a better stadium even farther north in the next county but still easily accessible for the fanbase.

And its in a much healthier (less crime) community.

Sounds good in theory but the MSM will reply "you already have this, its called HOCKEY." Which is about 965 white. And even most whites don't like it. Certainly not in the same numbers that they like the big three sports.

So there's the rub. What to do, what to do.

Anon 11:50 has a good point about the Negro Leagues. While everyone hails Jackie Robinson (PBUH) for bravely breaking the race barrier, like a black Chuck Yeager, the Major League integration put hundreds of negro players out of work, and ultimately killed Negro League Baseball. I believe racial separation would make sports more interesting, climaxing each year with a season-ending white vs black Uber Bowl. With everyone openly wearing their skin as their uniform, it would have a World Cup, nationalistic atmosphere. And we could finally nail the coffin and bury the myth of universal negro athletic superiority (or we could lose every year, and join Whiskey's online Church of Negro Sexiness).
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why one college -- out of hundreds -- hasn't tried to assemble an all-white Master Sports program. They could easily recruit the best white athletes (the cream of the crop), who would not face unfair competition from non-scholar negroes, and worse, their coaches' perception of negro advantage falsely gleaned from their constant chimping and trash-talking. Truly, the best place for black "stoodint affaleets" would be in semi-pro, developmental football and baksketball leagues. They could earn a salary, the boosters and coaches would no longer need to sneak payments to players, and best of all, campus crime (especially rape) would disappear.

Of course it's race.

The team uses the traffic and transit excuse, but that's easy to blow through because traffic is worse in the area they want to move, and Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta (MARTA) doesn't go there at all.

It's all avoiding the undertow.

Unfortunately, Cobb County isn't the whitopia it used to be.

PK, you think Holder/DOJ slinging some disparate impact lawsuit stops it. Before that, I think what'll stop it is Tea Party activism:

Wasn't "Ashley" the commander of "Cobb's Legion" in "Gone With The Wind"? I believe so. wasn't that also the county of development in Wolf's "A Man In Full"? that one I cannot remember.

Not personally knowing the area, but knowing that the names of those areas--very old English names, have historical meaning, it is sad to see them go under over time. The original people, there for hundreds of years (think land grants from the king of England), displaced by savages with no sense of history--having none of their own, and no sense of roots.

What a shame.

From the article at Atlanta Magazine

The Braves claim that the new location puts them closer to the “geographic center” of their fan base, i.e. white, middle-class suburbanites. The team touts “a variety of other transportation options” at the Cobb site, although the county does not support MARTA.

OT: I decided to do a bit of online research on gun crime and violent crime in the UK recently. All handguns were banned there in 1996 as I understand it. Despite this massive kneejerk reaction, over the last ten years, gun crime in the UK has increased according to certain British media sources, especially in British cities like London. Just like many other cities across the English-speaking world, the perps of gun crime in the UK have been nearly all of the negro variety.

It was during this online research of mine when I found this website:

Knife crime and gun crime campaigns and videos

At the link above, there is an interactive video entitled "Choose A Different Ending" embedded in the page. What I found to be remarkable is that this video has the viewer playing the role of a teenage English negro who lives in a government-subsidized housing project, along with scenes of other teenage English negroes chimping out and engaged in illegal activity, such as carrying what appears to be a kitchen paring knife in the street, or using said kitchen paring knife to stab you, the viewer, after which the camera angle turns over and goes to the ground, so as to let you know that you have "died" from your stab wound.

This entire interactive video series was apparently produced with the consent of the British government. After you watch and play these interactive videos, then try to ask yourself if something like this would ever get made here in our BRA. My guess is no, it would not, but if it was made with the use of mostly negro actors like the UK version was, there would very likely be an extreme amount of butthurt coming from Reverend Al, Reverend Jesse, assorted DWL types, and the NAACP over it. Showing negroes in a manner such ads this here in BRA is strictly taboo these days, it seems, no matter how much it suits the reality that all of us here are quite aware of already.

WND won't let me comment, but it sure likes the comments of the negroes screeching about how violence against us is justified.


Anti-Whites like SeanRobinson like to make a lot of noise about how Whites commit crimes, too, so racially motivated attacks against Whites are apparently justified. This is how they try and distract from the real issues at hand.

The anti-White also makes noise about "basic statistical research" while doing none, itself. If it had done any research, it would have noted that pre-Holder FBI crime statistics paint a very different picture of the behaviors of black and why they absolutely warrant profiling.

Young black males are approximately 2% of the US population, but commit over 70% of violent crimes. Black males kill their White female breeding partners at a rate 23 times higher than White males do, and black females kill their White male breeding partners at a rate 36 times higher than White females do. Black males are also responsible for 98% of interracial rape. When you do research the basic statistics, you find a very disturbing "trend".

However, because Eric "I hate White people" Holder, is now heading the Justice Department, these facts are becoming skewed, purposefully.

The disgusting mulatto that raped and murdered its teacher with a box cutter and then went to enjoy a movie and some fast food with the teacher's credit cards, is called White in its arrest record. The mulatto that drove the car with two other blacks and shot the Australian jogger in the back was repeatedly identified as White by the media, despite all evidence to the contrary. Finally, Zimmerman, a Peruvian octoroon, was consistently reported as a White male.

The media is absolutely in compliance with disseminating disinformation, as are now law enforcement agencies, and other reporting agencies, in an effort to minimize the reality of black violence and criminality. Because, you know, Whites commit crimes, too.

In UKistan blacks wanted more arrests of knife carriers to cut down on knife crime which saw so many blacks killed.

Arresting "youths" for having knives was racists because "too many" blacks were being arrested.

No other reason other than racism could account for this.

Now that the negro knockout game is getting some media attention, two things are clear. First, they'll continue with the use of "teens" forever. Two, they don't know a damn thing about the history of these attacking negroes. I heard some guy who broadcasts out of Texas describe the assaults as predominately against Jewish men. I've seen other outlets described the assailants as "often black teens".

You've probably encountered media reports about something you know something about, whatever it might be. The media just sucks. When they're not deliberately twisting or hiding facts, their facts are just bad. Remember that when you're perusing some article on finance or international events.

Quite. This is a perfect illustration of the total reversal of morality, and the Christian churches' role in that.

In a small rural Kansas town, a single White mother of three bastard mongrels would have been shunned just a few decades ago. Now, she is a well-loved staff member at the Good Samaritan Society, and also part-timer at the Presbyterian Manor. Probably thought of herself,and presented herself, as a devout Christian herself. Because nobody should judge, and those rules about chastity are no more applicable to modern Christanity than stoning sabbath-breakers.

The mainstream Christian churches long ago abandoned their mission of preaching the "Gospel of Salvation", and now preach only the gospel of Social Justice.

For my part, I have no problem with the Eloi tax, as long as it is paid by these defectives. No, scratch that. They're our defectives, and we should be dealing with them.

Negro players, playing in negro areas for negro fans. Throw in negro team owners and management, negro vendors, negro contractors, negro politicians, etc. How could that NOT succeed?

Not necessarily true. Communities can keep negros under control by not tolerating monkeyshines. There is no law against glaring at undesirables of any race, and when forced to, addressing them in a growl. Enforce the laws with everyone, black or white. But there has to be a will to do this. Word will get out among the riff-raff, and they will avoid the area.

Don't sit on the sidelines.You are not wasting your time. The American people don't want this bill. You have to do all you can do to stem the third world assault:
- Contact your 2 US Senators and rep in congress.
- after biz hours, leave a message on your DC rep's voicemail. All US Senators have multiple offices so it would be a good idea to hit all of the. Remember, be civil and don't threaten
- go to NUMBERSUSA then go to the take action button. You will be able to send faxes to your 2 US Senators and congressional for free. (I also gave a $50 donation).
- use Business Reply envelopes to state your opposition to America's insane immigration policies and the proposed amnesty. Don't give the parties any money.
- join an immigration group like FAIR. Strength thru numbers!
- go to the RNC & DNC sites to email them.
- Use the media: call a talk radio program; write a letter to your local paper. If the media outlet is liberal, then talk about economic impact of massive third world immigration.
- text everybody in your cell phone queue now.
