This thread is so lame. Shame on all of you. It's not about illegal immigration at all. It's just about appealing to a certain segment of their viewership. The spurs did it like a month or two ago. They had "LOS SPURS" jerseys... and had nothing to do with politics. They just felt like having a latin day at the sbc center or something.

Some of you guys are just looking for a reason to b¡tch. Just like the libs with the oil spill. Everyone take a chill pill...

If the Suns want to show appreciation for the "latino" group, why not try and play soccer? I don't get it they should televise soccer games, Beckham.

Seems to be the theme in here.
FAIL! A 'brown' (or White) Mexican here legally is treated better in the USA vs. back home so that explodes your argument.

As for the 'Los Suns' thread: the timing is especially poor for wearing anything that implies being in favor of amnesty.

If it comes down to a choice between secure borders or the Phoenix Suns, a secure border is always going to win. Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver should not be using athletes for his own personal political agenda.

I'm frankly tired of the millionaire celebrities and sports figures trying to influence those of us who live in the "REAL WORLD".
70% of Arizonians approve of the new law. So let's see...maybe about 70%, give or take, of the season ticket holders approve of the law? That makes Sarver an....idiot? Backlash? Definitely.

Shame on you for commenting before knowing the facts. Again, it's not the fact that they are wearing the jerseys, it's the political reasoning they have put behind wearing them this year.

Wasn't it Mexico that between 1900 - 1920 committed genocide on a massive scale somewhere around 1.5 million murders of their own people? I remember seeing a photograph of Mexicans who had been lynched, hanging on poles next to railroad tracks that went on for miles.

Please don't paint Mexico as an innocent here.

And didn't Mexico take their land from Spain, who took it from the Nahuatl people, who took it from the Mayans, who took it from the cute little deer and birdies who once lived there in tranquility until man came along.

How far do you want to take this?
