White Appreciation Day? What do you think? Here are the first few paragraphs from that link:
Edgar Antillon had no idea the sort of firestorm that the simple, handwritten signs he was posting on Saturday in his Milliken, Colorado, restaurant were about to unleash.
“White Appreciation Day! June 11,” they read. “Because all Americans should be celebrated!”
The plan was for Rubbin’ Buttz BBQ and Country Café to honor white Americans by offering a 10 percent discount that day.
“It was our humorous way of poking fun at our society,” Antillon, the 30-year-old co-owner of the restaurant, told Fox News Latino. “It’s almost racist not to have a day to honor white people, who make up a large portion of American culture.”
Z: Obviously, people are threatening to ‘gut’ him, etc etc….from all sides of the issues. His partner and family aren’t too happy with him! But, when asked if he regrets it:
“None whatsoever,” he said emphatically. “Never will I regret it, never will I apologize.”
“People are too busy walking on eggshells all the time to ever accomplish anything.”
Here’s some background: “The restaurant owner (Edgar Antillon) was born and raised in the Denver area to parents who immigrated from a small town in Chihuahua, Mexico. He started a 501(c)3 group called “Guns for Everyone,” which provides free classes in carrying concealed firearms, and bought Rubbin’ Buttz BBQ earlier this year.”
QUITE an immigrant, huh?
THEN THERE IS THIS.… “I am a professor at Duke University. Every Asian student has a very simple old American first name that symbolizes their desire for integration. Virtually every black has a strange new name that symbolizes their lack of desire for integration.”. More from the article:
Hough described himself as a disciple of Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1950s who supported integration. In his lifetime, he said, he’s observed prejudice ranging from the World War II-era internment camps for Japanese-Americans to segregation in the South, and he’s dismayed that more progress hasn’t been made.
“My purpose is to help achieve the battle of King’s battle to overcome and create a melting pot America,” he said.
But, of course, liberal racist professors are calling his plights as if they come from “The Unchecked Racism of a Tenured Duke Professor.”
Apparently, it’s just not okay to tell one’s truth……..it just isn’t okay. Unless it’s a leftwinger, of course.
Thoughts on either of these articles dealing with Whites who want to step out in trust that people will understand why they’re saying what they’re saying and at least consider it?
