Unfortunately the boycott is due to the bad law that Arizona foolishly passed and may put into effect in July. That's what is causing headaches even in California because it is splitting the citizens and causing demonstrations.

I think people should go to Arizona and do civil disobedience.
Again (for the millionth time), what is so bad about SB1070? Please don't tell me it allows for racial profiling (the buzz phrase for this year) because it states that it is illegal in AZ. Meanwhile, the federal law that it mirrors is harsher on illegal immigrants than SB1070, so why aren't those misguided Californians boycotting that?

We know Obama is against SB1070, and we have a good reason to believe it is because he is pro-amnesty. In other words, future votes for the Democrats.

These protests happened in the South were discrimination was still allowed.

Now people are upset with Arizona. So why do some of them demonstrate in California? It doesn't make sense to me especially in Los Angeles where the city and county and school district have all proclaimed boycotts of Arizona. Even Santa Ana were the recent civil disobedience occurred is a "sanctuary" city officially opposed to the Arizona law. A May Day parade against Arizona turned into public vandalism in Santa Cruz when some of the protesters decided to break store windows. They should take that anger to Arizona not California.

It would be much more effective if these protest demonstrations occurred in Phoenix not Los Angeles. People here are innocent by-standers yet we have to suffer when anti-Arizona demonstrations clog up busy boulevards.
