Boycott Arizona? Or, New York?

Blacks and Latinos were nine times as likely as whites to be stopped by the police in New York City in 2009, but no more likely to be arrested.

I guess the NBA and MLB players' associations will call for a boycott of New York.

I suppose California pension funds will boycott New York.

I'm sure no political party will meet in New York.

After all, these groups have to varying degrees called for a boycott of Arizona for fear that the new state immigration law could result in innocent Latinos being more likely to be stopped by the police.

Actually, I'm sure the New York based media will hold New York to a different standard.
