City officials from Kingman, Ariz., want you to know that the racists shown on a recent episode of Sacha Baron Cohen’s show, Who Is America, aren’t their racists. But, you know, they’re still trying to do better about the whole race thing.

One Arizona teen received, quite literally, a shock after his mother allegedly woke him up for Easter church service using a stun gun.
Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio refuses to die out of the news cycle. In addition to running to represent the state in the U.S. Senate despite having been convicted of a crime, Arpaio seems insistent on dying on the hill of racism. He recently swore to resume his already debunked conspiracy theory surrounding…
I probably watched less college basketball this year than I ever have. Actually, “probably” is unnecessary. That is definitely true. For someone as obsessed with basketball as I am, this might seem odd. But I have a few perfectly rational reasons for this lack of viewership:
The man whose policies resulted in constitutional violations, discrimination and even death sidestepped these charges on national TV by doubling down on the Barack Obama Birther conspiracy, claiming that he has “evidence.” Despite the fact that—given ample opportunity to show his supposed proof—he never does, the…
A Phoenix man who is facing charges of killing his estranged wife and two children on Monday shared a Facebook video of himself singing Christmas songs with his son just hours before the horrific slayings.
Daniel Shaver, 26, is dead. Mesa, Ariz., Police Officer Philip “Mitch” Brailsford, 27, a cowboy armed with an AR-15—with the words “You’re fucked” etched on the dust cover—executed him in a hotel hallway as he sobbed and begged for his life. The video of the 2016 shooting was not released until after Brailsford was…

There’s nothing worse than when someone takes you for an idiot. It’s probably 1,000 times more so when there is video evidence of something and they (in this case the criminal-justice system) still take the piss.
Now that bigotry and racism is house-sitting 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., it seems fitting that ex-Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio—who was so vile and xenophobic that the courts ordered him to stop targeting Latinos in Arizona, but he refused and was sent to prison until the xenophobe in chief pardoned him—may…
Two Arizona boys are showing that age is nothing but a number when it comes to acts of heroism as they were acknowledged and honored by their community for saving a woman from her burning apartment.
Who could forget the adorable story of the young black man in Arizona who mistakenly got a text and showed up to “grandma’s” house last year?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is under investigation by the NFL since allegations have surfaced that he groped an Uber driver in 2016.
In 1993, now-former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio opened his infamous Tent City outdoor jail, supposedly as an answer to the problem of overcrowding in Phoenix’s jails.
