    A Colorado barbecue joint is taking heat after announcing a plan to hold a day honoring white people.

    "On June 11th, what we plan on doing is 'White Appreciation Day.' And basically on that day, all white people would get 10 percent off," Edgar Antillon, owner of Rubbin' Buttz BBQ and Country Cafe in Milliken, Colorado, told NBC affiliate KUSA.

    The idea for "White Appreciation Day" was originally a joke, but Antillon decided to turn it into a real deal, hanging up a sign at Rubbin Buttz that reads "White Appreciation Day! June 11th. Because all Americans should be celebrated."

    I might go there just to get ten percent off for being white. It can't be much more than a thousand miles from here. Also, there wouldn't be any social justice warriors there so everything would be friendly.
