Why no protests against the Harlem Globetrotters?
The Harlem Globetrotters played over the weekend in a country that has discriminated against its Palestinian population for over sixty years. Hundreds of thousands of this country's residents are barred from becoming citizens, from buying land, from taking up many types of jobs and even from leaving the wretched, impoverished ghettos they live in. The general population despises their Palestinian Arab minority and would love to ethnically cleanse them if they could. But no one called for the basketball entertainers to boycott this country and to highlight the nation's official policy of discrimination against Palestinian Arabs. Why not?
