It's unfortunate that you look down on me because of where I live - possibly on account of some politicians that I don't agree with and didn't vote for. Sadly, you're lumping all Californians, and state employees, into one category. Some us are still American Patriots, we're suffering, and are disappointed that "other states" are writing all of us off as "liberal nutcakes". There but by the grace of God go you and your state.

My state isn't any better. But I suggest you get a sense of humor.

What a perfectly crappy thing to say. Didn't your mother teach you any manners at all? Adding a smilie emoticon doesn't negate the lack of manners.

They also missed the lesson on taking responsibility for your actions as well.

Oh please. Lighten up Francis. If don't find the humor, that's fine. But move on with your lives.

How far in advance of your convention was this decision made?

As a male, I hope you do not mind my posting!

I admire the thought though, but the reality is AST is to late to boycott. Contract's signed, money spent in advance.

But, let your Sororities disdain be heard with letters. Remember, you are big enough to hold some power to sway people not only in Alabama but The Greek World!

I back your thoughts as I am Pro Choice! This is simply for the fact that it is "NOT THE GOVERNMENTS CHOICE" what a women does with her body!

I despise this Political Clap Trap that Govt. Clowns are trying to enact.

So, how do you hurt these States and Governments is through money!! Let your voice be heard!!

Just remember the people you will hurt the most are the everyday Joes and Joannes who work the convention center, hotels, restaurants, etc. They'll miss a paycheck long before any politician notices.

This is the problem I have with this sort of thing (outside of changing it at such notice would make for a logistical nightmare). Politicians making the laws don't even notice things like this. Atlanta will always be a huge draw for conferences and such. They hosted the Olympics, for God's sakes!

I apologize, but I honestly cannot remember. I do believe money was lost, but at the time, we had it.

I just Googled it up -- the Alpha Phi Alpha Convention was scheduled for July 21-25, 2010. It appears the organization announced the decision to change locations around the first week of May 2010. So, about 10 weeks in advance.

The article I found stated that Alpha Phi Alpha had been anticipating $300,000 in penalties from the breaking of the various contracts with vendors. The article further stated, "That doesn't include over 3,000 Alphas who will have to change their flight and hotel reservations as soon as possible."

Protecting our Latino Brothers from state-sanctioned racial profiling was more important to us.
