The irony of David Zirin saying “forget” all of these things is Zirin pointing out the reasons why Civil Rights shouldn’t have been honored in Atlanta. The so called things to forget are incredibly important. Zirin doesn’t really want anyone to forget anything. By saying to forget all of the things done in Atlanta that oppose Civil Rights, Zirin has forced every reader to see what has happened that shouldn’t ever happen to those people who are a part of a minority. It’s very effective. The way that the article is written is meant to get under the reader’s skin and force him/her to really think about Civil Rights and how far it maybe hasn’t come.

Zirin is saying the people of Atlanta can’t honor Civil Rights when there are laws being passed in Atlanta that contradict Civil Rights. By passing a law saying that someone such as a police officer can demand to see paperwork stating that this person the police officer is talking to is a legal United States citizen.

Carlos Santana was saying that the law is cruel and ridiculous. American people should not be afraid of immigrants stealing the jobs of Americans because the immigrants are the ones doing all the dirty jobs. By saying this, Santana implied that Americans think they are too good to do jobs such as wash dirty sheets and clean toilets. Santana also went on to say that if the Latin population stopped doing their jobs for a few days, higher up Americans would see how much the Latin people do for the United States.

If Major League Baseball wants to honor Civil Rights, the MLB needs to do it right. Occasionally honoring Civil Rights by playing a baseball game and saying all the good things going on isn’t good enough. The MLB needs to promote Civil Rights all the time and be a part of exploiting the laws being put into place which take away from Civil Rights, or Major League Baseball should not honor Civil Rights at all. In my opinion Major League Baseball either needs to do it right all the time, or stop entirely. As far as the law of stopping any person and asking to see papers verifying their citizenship, that’s wrong. The law also encroaches on the 4th Amendment of the Constitution. I can see where the law is coming from trying to keep illegal immigrants out of the United States, but it’s going too far.

I really appreciated reading this article because I am Hispanic myself and I find it frustrating that discrimination like this is happening still today. It is one thing for Arizona and Georgia to want to fix their illegal immigration problems; however, it is another thing to want to demand proof of a Hispanic person’s right to be in the country. If I was to be stopped by a police officer and get questioned about my immigration status, I would be very angry! The fact that I look Hispanic does not mean I am an illegal immigrant. I am glad this is getting some attention and I am glad that Carlos Santana spoke for the rest of the Hispanic community during this so called Civil Rights game. I think that it is a complete shame that he was booed for it and that the Major League Baseball commissioner went into hiding after this because it just shows how ignorant and discriminatory people still are. I come from a family who is really into baseball and I do remember finding it kind of odd how the All-Star game was held in Arizona last year even with all the controversy surrounding the state. I believe it should not have been there, the MLB should have shown some sensitivity and removed it. The Civil Rights game in Atlanta, Georgia also should have been stopped after that discriminatory law passed. It just makes no sense for a Civil Rights game to be held in a place where discrimination still exists. I also do not know what the MLB commissioner was thinking when he invited a Hispanic to the game. Did he really think Carlos Santana was just going to smile for the cameras? I am very glad he did the opposite and I am glad he spoke what many of us were thinking. I know that if I would have attended that Civil Rights game, I would have cheered Carlos Santana on.
