A Colorado barbecue business is offering a 10 percent discount for Caucasians – a “White Appreciation Day” that’s aimed at giving whites the same recognition as minorities.
“We have a whole month for Black History Month,” said Rubbin’Buttz owner Edgar Antillon, KUSA-TV reported. “We have a whole month for Hispanic Heritage Month, so we though the least we could do was offer one day to appreciate white Americans.”
A social media post of the event reads, the New York Daily News reported: ‘We’re sure many of you have heard about our event coming up on June 11th … Although we’ve had overwhelming support for it, there are a few who are filled with hate and/or misunderstanding. People full of hate and negativity want your attention, don’t give it to them. Stay happy!”
About 82 percent of the town where the barbecue’s located, Milliken, are white.
