For tomorrow's NBA playoff game, the Phoenix Suns will wear jerseys that rephrase the team name into Spanish: Los Suns. In a news release, owner Robert Sarver said "our players and organization felt that wearing our 'Los Suns' jerseys on Cinco de Mayo was a way for our team and our organization to honor our Latino community and the diversity of our league, the State of Arizona, and our nation … " He went on to call the state law "flawed" and added "our basic principles of equal rights and protection under the law are being called into question."
Noted: On Sunday, The Arizona Republic ran a front-page editorial saying that "Arizona politicians are pandering to public fear. The result is a state law that intimidates Latinos while doing nothing to curb illegal immigration."
