  •  Pima County is not the same as Tucson (0+ / 0-)

    I will agree that there are a lot of right wing wackos in Pima County outside of Tucson city limits. They tend to plop their manufactured homes on their half acres of land, get a couple of pit bulls and live in their little paranoid worlds. The NW area of Pima Co near Marana is a prime location for these types, and they usually hate the City of Tucson (and its residents) so much that they would never think of living within city limits. Yes, there are doubtless a number of racists within city limits, but those attitudes do not predominate.
    One further thing: my husband has extended family in Nebraska, and we've heard some pretty racist things from them. I do think that many folks are less guarded about their true feelings when they feel safe among family and friends.
