It was called a "Civil Rights Game." Civil Rights are political issues.

Perhaps they shouldn't give out these types of awards at sports events, but since they do, expect to hear political speech.

The people of CA elected Arnold. That was THEIR choice. Do you have problem with open elections? At least Arnold wasnt RECALLED, like the previous DEMOCRTATIC governor, Davis.
I'm sorry you missed my point in your desire to crap on a Democratic politician which has nothing to do with anything.

Hmmm. Im not familiar with this "game". Does that mean white players must apologize for getting hits off black pitchers, or making outs against black batters?

And poor ole me just thought this was a PR effort to sell a few more tickets to a ball game. But what do I know...

The premise is correct, Wall St. lives by its own laws and rules and destroyed the world's financial system with no regulation and no punishment. Of course there will be a lot of bias and some inaccuracies but the overall premise was spot on.

However, you rather ***** about a Hispanic musician standing up for what he believes in then ***** about the body building governor who helped crap out Cali or the people who defecated all over America that work on Wall St.

I couldn't possibly care less about what Santana says, I'm just annoyed to the backteeth that my money will be used to try to defend a law that's patently unconstitutional on it's face. I'm so tired of politicians creating stuff that they know will be overturned just to get votes from the ignorant and uninformed. Every constitutional scholar on the planet has stated that this law is unconstitutional. Arizona has lost millions in revenue from people boycotting the state, and Georgia jumps on board anyway. I really do think we need a constitutional amendment to prevent legislators from writing bills that they know are unconstitutional. They're a waste of time, money and simply make the state look stupider than all get out.

I agree with Santana.

To see why I feel this way, you can review the thread where I've been arguing against HB87 for a month now:

Georgia passes Arizona type immigration law

If you want to argue against me on this, it might benefit you to brush up on basic facts of illegal immigration in America first. I've noticed people tend to support banishing illegal immigrants even without a basic understanding of the issue.

Can you please provide a link where "every constitutional scholar" has stated that this law is unconstitutional. I havent seen nor heard one thing about this and this bill has gotten alot of press lately. All I have heard is the threat of a few boycotts.

Nope. I read it. It wasnt very long so I managed to get through it.

Still see a PR effort attached to a baseball game. Not sure why the article would make me see it any differently.
