Hispanic barbecue owners to host ‘White Appreciation Day’ at Colorado eatery

(Twitter: @eantillon)Black History Month is February. Hispanic Heritage Month is Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. And at one Colorado barbecue joint, June 11 is White Appreciation Day.

Two Hispanic restaurant owners, Edgar Antillon and Miguel Jiminez, who recently bought Rubbin Buttz BBQ in Milliken, Colorado, have decided to offer a 10 percent discount that day to white customers.

“We have a whole month for Black History Month,” Mr. Antillon told 9News in Denver. “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 may have started out as a joke, but now there’s a sign taped on the restaurant’s window and posted on his Twitter feed announcing the event with the message, “Because all Americans should be celebrated!!”

Whether the owners can actually pull off the appreciation remains to be seen. Jennifer McPherson of the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies told 9News that the civil rights division would investigate if someone were to file a complaint.

Then again, Mr. Antillon isn’t afraid of a little controversy. A firearms instructor, he launched an initiative drive last year to allow legal marijuana users in Colorado to obtain concealed handgun permits. He also offers free concealed-carry classes at venues statewide through his organization, Guns for Everyone.

Good for them!!  

Thumbs up Miguel. It is about someone stood up for people that stand up!

I commend the Owner's of this Restaurant. I agree that there should be events and celebrations of Each Heritage. Frankly, it's really only a Marketing advantage to increase revenue. But, on a personal level, it's only Right to do so. If the Leftists try to make waves...then it's a catch 22. ALL ethnic/Heritage Appreciation Celebrations should be disallowed. Although, we Do have freedom to advertise the way we want. That being said, it won't budge the Leftist/Nazi's.

Whether it causes controversy or not, this is a first step to Constitutional Equal Rights for All regardless of Race, Color or Creed.

Ooops...I believe we already have that...????

I do NOT agree, though, with arming Pot User's. Bad idea. Thugs, Druggies and drug traffickers armed? Get real!

Hispanics and Latino  Asians us whites get along with and most blacks..

My family will be there. Thanks Edgar and Miguel. SEMPER FI

I like these guys.  I hope they succeed endlessly

Wow. For once....They sound like true American Thinkers. Let's celebrate and thank them!

You either ARE an American or you are not..the color of ones skin should not matter...there should not be black, Hispanic, Asian etc appreciation day at all..all that does is further divide us into "groups"...I am a proud UNHYPHENATED American. As an aside, I give these guys credit...sure someone from the ACLU or white privilege BS group will sue.

Thank You very much Mr. Antillion, You are a  true Picture of what an American Patriot and Citizen is all about !!

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
