@jillpcarter preakness is such a baltimore institution and atlas hates this cities inhabitants and history. i’m not going for the first time in 20 years.
@jillpcarter Absolutely support your activism on this. Businesses with credible evidence of bigoted, racist practices hurt Baltimoreans and do not belong here or anywhere. People who discriminate must be held accountable, *not* given more power and license to continue harmful ways.
Is it coincidence that after I say there’s no place for Atlas in our city: https://www.baltimoresun.com/opinion/op-ed/bs-ed-op-0629-atlas-racism-20200626-nxcpoiyq5nhlzmdmaskz454wfq-story.html MD Jockey Club gives them an exclusive contract for the biggest event in the city which happens to be in my district? Your thoughts?

Yes, let's absolutely invite the racists who sued to more thoroughly endanger Baltimoreans to enjoy the exact opposite of consequences.

1) A real blow for the anti-racism movement. #Preakness should have partnered with black-owned restaurants, W Baltimore caterers, or at least restaurants that serve the whole city. I still #boycottAtlas
