Yeah, not much appealing there, & the weather doesn't interest me either as I hate heat.

I don't think we have anything in the stores here manufactured there, but I'll make sure I check, as well as checking where my items come from when I shop online.

Dear ol' dad was a huge bigot, matching ''Archie Bunker'' without the humor, but I never liked it & knew something wasn't right even before I heard of the word.

Considering the level of Bigotry pervading Arizona, I would boycot them.  The problem is, I have never gone there, I don't plan to, and I'm not aware of buying anything from there.  Not much left to boycot.  Kind of like Alabama, same thing.

I also have never heard of people being ''pulled over'' who aren't white, so it either hasn't been enough to make the news, or I just haven't heard it, & my husband has Vancouver's news on every evening. But......as I said, we're in a small city, & the biggest thing here other than crime is getting the drunks out of the city park.

I can't claim to know much about it, but I do know a lot of the Canadians go there for the winter, including a neighbor down the street from us. My husband has a US cousin who lives in Arizona, but we're not in touch.

News about Arizona is on our news frequently, but I can't say I'm impressed. I am in a very small city, & we don't seem to have the issues with all these things as the bigger centers do.

We have all kinds of different people here & no problem other than crime from some of the same ones over & over again.

I prefer not to watch a lot of the news as it makes me so sad.

Patricia,

Arizona has long endeavored to be "The Alabama of the Southwest". I don't know why. Well, yes I do. Arizona is one of the major "White flight" states, as reactionary white people left California and other states in reaction to the presence of more people of color.

I know a fair number of "snowbirds" - retirees who migrate to Arizona in the winter, and back to the Northwest in the summer. Some of them, you can't even chit chat with, without their bigotry coming to the front. "How was the winter there this year?" "The sunshine was great. But too many Mexicans."

I didn't to research on statistic there. I don't feel like becoming worked up and upset. My impression is, recent anti-immigrant (more accurately, "Anti-Mexican", since they won't pull people over for looking Canadian) laws have resulted in people of Mexican heritage leaving the state. Alabama, too. When I am in a better mood I might check on that. Might not.

More on Virginia.  It makes me want to cry.

I never thought in my lifetime there would be so much change.  Never imagined.  Being gay, I never expected acceptance, equality.  The purveyors of misery would not allow it!  

I shake my head and think, wake me up!  It's too much!

 

You cant go through life without knowing there is a pendulum.  For every yin, a yang.  I don't believe in metaphysical forces that call for balance - our success does not create misery in Africa, Arab nations, Russia.  But I keep thinking, the next election cycle....  what will happen?

 

Ultimately it will go to the Supreme Court again.  I hope Ginsberg is taking her vitamins.

Just amazed.  Amazed.
