This is part of a bigger problem. Businesses are fleeing Mississippi. The governor and others are almost all Republicans. They are anti-poor, anti-immigrant, homophobic, racist, misogynistic scum. I know because I live in Tennessee very close to Mississippi and my husband works for a company moving all the companies and their families out of that state, never to return. He is an immigrant and works with other immigrants, here as they have a right to be, and yet they feel trepidation every time they have to go on a run to Mississippi. It’s not welcoming to anyone who isn’t rich, male, and white. Anyone who thinks I am just being hyperbolic should try visiting Mississippi and see the state for themselves. I don’t recommend going to boost the state’s tourism, but because I think that seeing the poverty and hypocrisy firsthand is more instructive.
