Why is it when ever anyone wants to do something to "appreciate" the right/whites or males, the left brings out the "is racist card", and yet again show that whites are the only group that it still is legal to discriminate against??

I was all for what this hispanic was going for with his single day a year to celebrate white folk, but seeing how quickly he has caved into all the hate and intolerance that has been shown to him, once again proves to me, that both society and the law seems to have a WILLFUL double standard when it comes to pushing discrimination.
I wonder if there would have even been 1/100th the outrage shown in the media and on social media, had this BBQ store owner had done a "Muslim appreciation day, or a Latino appreciation day etc"..

Hypocrisy from the LEFT, pure and simple. They don't really want equality, they want special treatment.

Political publicity stunt...seems this restaurant owner lost his bid for Congress in 2014 on the theme:


Excerpt: "For too long has HD32 had leadership that insisted on having more government intervention to level the playing field. We’ve seen the results of that style of government, it is time we get back to basics and allow all business owners to dictate their own success.

When he's not having "White Appreciation Day", he's hosting a "Guns for Everyone" rally at the State Capitol, or a "Guns for ...

Which is all well and good...have no problem with someone expressing themselves and their political opinion...but, this whole thing and the reaction to it probably has more to do with his political agenda and Congressional aspirations than anything else.

All of that said...I don't have any problem with a White Appreciation Day...knock yourself out.

It's almost patronizing, really.
