BBQ joint: ‘White Appreciation Day’ discounts for everyone now

May 11, 2015

A barbecue restaurant in northern Colorado has retracted its plan to give white customers a 10 percent discount and instead will offer the savings to all diners after widespread criticism. The owner of Rubbin' Buttz BBQ and Country Cafe in Milliken, hung a sign reading "White Appreciation Day! June 11th. Because all Americans should be celebrated!!" It gained attention on social media last week, and by yesterday the description of the event was changed to include a discount for all races.
