boycott? ask those affected

Accountability to marginalized folks means asking what *they* think/feel. If we are to ponder a boycott of Phoenix in 2012 (by moving GA elsewhere), then we need the input of the immigrant families and our Hispanic/Latina/Latino cousins who are being harassed in Arizona. I like listening to myself pontificate as much as the next person, and here is an opportunity to engage with people, not think in a vacuum about what to do "for" them.

If I remember correctly Jesus said something like -

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

It seems to me that the very first step in undertaking that task is *asking* the "others" just what it is that they would like done unto them, as you have suggested here.
