You know it’s bad when the organization that includes the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians says you’re too racist. That’s like Matt Gaetz telling you to date your own age.

Meanwhile, the Braves were like, "Phew, I can’t believe this had nothing to do with our team name, tomahawk logo or chant."

(The new Georgia voting law) is so blatantly racist that it’s been dubbed "Jim Crow 2.0." 2.0, really? Georgia’s passed so many voter-suppression measures, they’ve got to be up to at least Jim Crow Snow Leopard.

— Trevor Noah
