Default White Appreciation Day

Not sure if you saw this today..it's by a BBQ owner in Colorado who will give a 10% discount off your meal if your white. Naturally minorities and civil liberty organizations don't like it because it discriminates But like the owner says there is a Black History Month and a Hispanic History Month so why not one day for whites...what's your view?

I think it is pretty funny.

I have never understood why it is OK to be racist as long as you aren't white.

Just standing around staring won't get rid of it. He is making a very valid point. We should treat all people as people, period. All this bullshit about people wanting to divide us up and whining for special treatment is just that. Anyone who treats people differently based on skin color is a racist, period. Being something other than white doesn't give anyone a pass on that fact. While once necessary, organizations like the NAACP are now part of the problem.

It is long past time to quit making excuses.

I don't disagree with what anyone has said. But as a business owner, I also don't need any additional headaches.

Don't get wrong. I don't blame you there at all.

I am kinda betting he ends up just giving everyone the discount that day. That way, he makes his point and gets his publicity but stays out of costly legal trouble.

Boston University prof flunks 'white masculinity' in controversial tweets | Fox News
This is what pisses my off. I let all my slaves go when they were 16. Being white is not a crime ,I am proud of my white heritage. Most were farmers and fought for both the north and the south. People like this women are setting us up for another race war.
