The Suns Protesting Arizona's New Law

To protest the new anti-immigration law in Arizona, the Phoenix Suns will once again wear their 'Los Suns' jerseys. It's a commendable stand, but it reminds me of a conversation I was privy to about a month ago.

Here is that conversation on the NBA's Latino Heritage Month.

Have you read it? Good. Here now is the conversation that brought on the decision to wear their 'Los Suns' jerseys for tonight's game.

"Did you hear about that new anti-immigration law they passed here?"
"Yeah, it's terrible."
"I know, right? We've gotta do something to protest."
"What about wearing our 'Los Suns' jerseys?"
"That's a great idea! But should we actually try to find out the Spanish translation for 'sun' this time?"
"Let's not go nuts."
