The world’s largest airline, American Airlines, has just announced that it was siding with Delta Airlines in opposition to Georgia’s new election law that President Joe Biden just called “Jim Crow on Steroids.”

“To make American’s stance clear: We are strongly opposed to this bill and others like it.”- American Airlines

It appears as if Dallas-based American Airlines, like the other business who have expressed their distaste with the new law that would get rid of ballot drop boxes and mandate voters to show picture identification when they cast their ballot, is caving to potential boycotts many Black activists like Stacy Abrams have threatened because they feel this and similar law disenfranchise the Black community.

This is Cancel Culture and once again, it appears as if U.S. businesses are caving to pressure for fear that they could be lumped into the ‘supporting racism’ narrative.

The airline, which has a large footprint at Miami International Airport (MIA), is also against the similar measure (SB 7) that the Texas legislature is considering in the 2021 legislative session.

The Texas bill, which Gov. Greg Abbott supports, is a lot more stringent than the Georgia law.

Texas bill would limit early voting hours, prohibit drive-thru voting and make it illegal for officials to send mail-in ballot applications to individuals.

American Airlines has not responded to The Floridian’s request for comment.
