What the hell is up with this state that I call home? We have recently decided to become blatantly racist by waving our minority hating flag proudly. First we pass the Latino hating immigration law. Then we pass legislation that prohibits the teaching of ethnic studies. The finally our racism boils over when a town over reacts to a mural that contains a person of color.

Now the hatred continues. The mayor of Yuma can be seen in the video below responding to the recent rise in attention to Don't Ask, Don't Tell. This was recorded on Memorial Day weekend and he shares how he feels about "lacy drawed, limp wristed people" serving in the military. A year ago I would have been surprised by this but with hatred being the thread that holds Arizona together now I can only sit back and wonder what's next.

I'm so ready to LEAVE this silly state that its driving me nuts, as soon as I can sell this house, this backwater will never see me set foot in it again.

When they say it was the Mississippi of the West in the 1950's and 1960's, in 2010, they are doing all the can to make Mississippi seem progressive, the hate is just out of control.
