"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
“The Hispanic owners of a barbecue restaurant in Milliken (Colorado) say they plan to host a “White Appreciation Day” next month. What started as a joke is now on the calendar. Edgar Antillon and Miguel Jimenez recently purchased Rubbin Buttz BBQ on Broad Street. On June 11, they plan to offer a 10% discount to all white customers and no one else.
“We have a whole month for Black History Month,” Antillon said. “We have a whole month for Hispanic heritage month, so we thought the least we could do was offer one day to appreciate white Americans.” . . . “It’s a perpetuation of racism,” said Ricardo Romero, a civil rights activist and community organizer in Weld County. “It’s wrong, if you’re going to give a discount, give it to the whole community.” . . .
Antillon says the discount isn’t meant to discriminate, but instead bring people together. He added that he has been the target of racism in the past. He hopes opening up the discussion will prompt others to think differently about race.
“We’re all American, whether you came from a different country or you were born here,” Antillon said. “We’re all American.”
There is a “perpetuation of racism”, Mr. Romero, and it seems to be well embedded in you. Apparently Romero has no understanding that a racist or prejudiced view is a two-way street. If it’s not OK to hate black or hispanic folk . . . it’s equally as bad to hate the white ones.
America has ‘black history month’ and ‘Hispanic heritage’ whatever, even going so far as to punish white American kids for showing their love of America on May 5 (Stinko de May-o… Cinco de May… or whatever) to non Americans celebrating being here illegally.
Yet white and Asian American are given the back of the proverbial hand and told to shut up? Enough is enough! Las personas de raza blanca larga vida!
More appreciation should be given to the brave, ‘proud to be white’ crowd, who founded this great nation, discovered penicillin and put the first man to the moon. Correct?
No, that would be considered: “hate speech” and the worse sort of braggadocios narcissism by the Liberal crowd who seeks to kiss up to those they’ve oppressed by their policies for decades. Of course, they wrench themselves out of sort, from all the self-aggrandizing, back-patty they bestow upon themselves, as they seek self-dispensation. Frauds, hypocrites and fools, they are. But this is where they’ve taken America from their foolish ideology.
I applaud Messrs. Edgar Antillon and Miguel Jimenez. I get the ‘joke’ and admire their bravery. Racism is everywhere, prejudice exhibited by most everyone to one degree of another . . . and it’s not a criminal act. Check your own soul before pointing a finger at someone else. . . or group of someone else’s. It’s just a color and is only ‘skin deep’. Unless you want to find yourself living in a world of the Walking Dead and remembering how nice it was to live in Baltimore.
