Arizona's SB 1062 has drawn a lot of negative attention to the southwestern state. If approved, this law will give businesses and individuals the ability to discriminate against others for religious reasons.
However, this is not Arizona's first time at the rodeo. They have a messy history when it comes to issues of civil rights.
Here are five of the worst examples:
5.) Governor Jan Brewer
The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington calls Brewer one of the "Worst Governors in America," and for good reason. Jan made a name for herself by signing SB 1070 into law and wagging her finger at President Obama.
She also isn't a fan of the LGBT community, fighting against marriage equality and domestic-partner benefits.
4.) Arizona State University
Besides being known as one of the nation's biggest party schools, they have also made some stupid mistakes, like denying President Obama an honorary degree for speaking at the 2009 commencement. They claimed that "his body of work is yet to come." However, they awarded honorary degrees to newspaper publishers, big-money donors, and a successful movie director.
Then this year, the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity posted pictures of a racist party on Instagram in "celebration" of MLK Day.
3.) Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Where do I start? Racial profiling, misusing funds, humiliating prisoners, Tent City, and investigating President Barack Obama's birth certificate -- this man is just rotten! How he's avoided being arrested himself is a still mystery.
Numbers 2 and 1 are after the jump.
