Arizona was the last state in the union to ratify a Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. The politicians and many of it's people (but not all) said "no!" to an MLK holiday long after every other state had already decided to honor Dr. King. Black athletes and leaders boycotted and the state eventually begrudgingly gave in.
Now, Arizona is once again trying to outdo all the other states and trying to reclaim its crown as the most intolerant, racist, and ass-backwards state by having recently passed SB1070--an unconstitutional, anti-immigrant, anti civil rights, xenophobic law that allows the police to racial profile ANYONE they see fit and it also allows law enforcement to arrest anyone that cannot produce documents that prove their residency/citizenship on the spot. This law has been called the most racist law since the Jim Crow laws of in the deep South. Way to go, Arizona!! You are the U.S. CHAMPION when it comes to staying way behind the rest of the country!!
Woman: Sounds like Gestapo tactics to me and we are losing more of our freedoms. Time to boycott Arizona!
Man: That's what I'm saying. I'm boycotting anything from AZ, starting with the Diamondbacks.
1. A sweltering arena of crank and conservatives; the dehydrated yet unbelievably odorous armpit of the United States.
2. The only state with Cacti. FUCK YES CACTI ARE FUCKING RAD.
2. I went to Arizona to see the majestic saguaro cacti and I got stung by a bark scorpion, resulting in near-fatal circumstances.
