What's All The Fuss About in Arizona? April 27, 2010

Notice how the media head lines shape your perception of the issue.  Many sources focus on the boycott, the outcry, the conflict, the furor and the split.  Few news stories focus on actual facts, if there is a reason to fear this law and what it will actually do.  Read the law for yourself here.  How many people protesting have actually read the law and know what it will do?  How many translators have been working round the clock to inform the protesters?  Is protesting something you don't know and understand similar to screaming "FIRE" in a crowded theater?  How is acting on emotion alone without a foundation of truth dangerous?
