LOS SUNS

Rate this Entry
The Phoenix Suns NBA team will make a political statement of solidarity with Hispanics by donning jerseys that say "Los Suns" rather than the normal jerseys in tonight's playoff game against San Antonio.



The Phoenix Suns basketball franchise announced that they will be wearing "Los Suns" jerseys on Wednesday night for Game 2 of their playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs. The game is being played in Phoenix. 

From ThinkProgress

Team owner Robert Sarver, a Republican, said the jerseys will "honor our Latino community and the diversity of our league, the state of Arizona and our nation." Sarver also made clear in a statement that the selection of the Spanish-language jersey -- which will coincide with Cinco de Mayo -- is a political statement against Arizona's new anti-immigrant law:

The frustration with the federal government's failure to deal with the issue of illegal immigration resulted in passage of a flawed state law. However intended, the result of passing this law is that our basic principles of equal rights and protection under the law are being called into question, and Arizona's already struggling economy will suffer even further setbacks at a time when the state can ill-afford them.

    Finally, there is a Rebulican who understands how this stupid law will impact the economy. Oh wait, he is a business man, too. Republicans are soooo out of touch.

    This guy understands that in order to fill an Arena and sell team jerseys you need everyone in the State... and that that this law is just bad for business and bad for everyone...
