    Hispanic-owned restaurant retracts 'White Appreciation Day' plans after threats
    [​IMG]
    MILLIKEN, Colo. – A Hispanic-owned barbecue restaurant in northern Colorado has retracted to its plan to offer a "White Appreciation Day" discount after receiving widespread criticism and even a bomb threat.

    Edgar Antillon, owner of Rubbin’ Buttz BBQ and Country Café in Milliken, Colorado hung a sign reading “White Appreciation Day! June 11th. Because all Americans should be celebrated!” last week – quickly gaining national attention on social media over the weekend with “White Appreciation Day” trending on Twitter.

    On Sunday, he changed the description of the event, saying everyone was entitled to a 10 percent discount.

    “We’re not backtracking, we’re not clarifying anything, this was the intention from the beginning,” he told KUSA-TV in Denver.

    The changed plan comes just days after the restaurant received a bomb threat, which forced an evacuation.

    Antillon, who was born to Mexican parents, defended his idea, pointing to Black History Month and Hispanic Heritage month as examples. He said he figured “the least we could do is offer one day to appreciate white Americans.”

    “We need to end the white guilt because they’re included in this American history and they should be included just like everybody else,” he said.

    Ricardo Romero, a civil rights activist in northern Colorado, called the plan "a perpetuation of racism."

    Based on reporting by The Associated Press.

    Looks like I'll have to save money by cutting the salaries to the black folk working for me.

    Some people have figured out how to do "World Class Attention Whoring" in today's PC world.

    If you want to get media attention, just claim that you like white people. Liking white people is currently akin to liking ISIS, only ISIS is cut more slack.

    I don't understand 10% off BBQ as an enticement, no matter the reason. It's already dirt cheap, they serve it on paper plates down here with brown paper on the table and 2 paper thin napkins. I'll spend the full $7.99, thank you.

    You missed the real lunacy. Like the person threatening the bomb threat part of the story.

    They opened not too long ago I think. He has gotten more local and national news coverage then he could have ever afforded if he took out ads.

    No, I saw that. I was going for levity :dontknow:

    You never hear what happens to all these bomb threat perpetrators. Should be considered domestic terrorism as far as I'm concerned

    Here's an idea: Illustrate how unrestricted immigration is further robbing American Tontos of their homeland. How do the immigration proponents reconcile the fact that immigration screws the injun? I wonder how they spin their policy to ignore that very real fact. I have many thoughts about many things. Much harder to come up with solutions though.

    it would be funny if for white appreciation day he served peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with a glass of milk, along with other "white people foods."

    Just curious, outside of World Star, how come you don't meet a lot of A group of lovely people on the internet? Maybe it's because they are racist against Dawg's.

    Does this means Mexico is on our team when the race wars begin?

    I gotta admit, I didn't see that one coming. Let's all give a big American welcome to our new lazy, mustachioed teammates.
