    Re: Los Angeles to boycott Arizona over immigration law

    Something about the rankings doesn't sit very well with me.

    #1 Indian Wells, Arizona
    * American Indian (97.9%)
    * Hispanic (1.3%)
    * White Non-Hispanic (1.2%)
    * Two or more races (0.7%)

    It's ranked as the most diverse city in the United States, but it is composed of 97.9% American Indian. I don't consider that to be very diverse.

    The name for the rankings should be renamed as "Lowest percentage of white people."

    Because Native Americans are minority's.

    All the stats are minority's and whites. So it is whites compared to minority's only.

    Shouldn't we boycott LA for LAPD officers for beating Rodney King or for freeing OJ? (tongue in cheek)

    Boycotting AZ ain't going to change anything.

    You need to educate yourself on LA before you make such ignorant statements.
    Do you have any clue at all of the Geographic area of LA?...

    I'll give you a clue...it runs from Diamond Bar through Alhambra....Signal Hill/Long Beach to the South...

    Nice try though...

    LOL....exactly. That list doesn't show the criteria it uses...and when you look at the majority of the cities they are not exactly "diverse". They might be substantial minority populations (such as the Hawaii cities)....but when 97% are of the same minority...its not exactly diversity.

    I do actually, and it does not change the fact that Chicago is more diverse than LA.

    I am calling you out on your bull****. So far you have offered nothing but lip service. That will not cut it.

    So unless you have some evidence I will consider you done.

    PS don't even try and say you were talking about LA County. We were not talking about county's otherwise I could include Cook County.

    Actually the City of Los Angeles does extend that far, however it is irregular shaped, which exaggerates the size.

    Personallly, I haven't been to Chicago so I can't say anything about diversity. But I think Honolulu has both towns beat

    Why? Even if their decision was not based on the AZ bashing, it looks like they moved to avoid the issue. They claim they moved it to Florida because it is a swing state. Didn't the GOP have it in NYC in 2004. Isn't NYC a Dem strong hold, not a swing state?

    I don't know, hmmmm?
    They had it in NY because of 9/11 and because Bloomberg bankrolled it.

    I think you're reading far too much into the decision not to have the convention in AZ. Again, a majority of people nationwide support the AZ law, including a large majority of Republicans.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
