Errorzona's passage of a controversial anti-immigration law could cost the state Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, potentially depriving an already battered economy of millions of dollars.

Companies have been pulling conferences out of Arizona resorts while others have suggested consumers shun companies, such as US Airways, that are based in the state and have yet to condemn the the law.

Boohoo we may lose a country if we don't take it back.

Seriously, baseball dude? If we lose half the teams all we have to do is call Japan and they'll send better players for less money and a hell of a lot less attitude.

Arizona is a racist state period. Now, YOU quit it and give it a rest.

I don't know who the hell you think you are talking to but don't take your frustrations out on me.

Arizona is NOT a racist state.

There is no such thing as a racist state or a non-racist state.

Every state has racists and non-racists.

Yes, a state can lean one way or a another. But I don't think it's right to generalize about an entire state.

Both sides of this debate need to calm down.
