Restaurant owner hosts 'White Appreciation Day'

A barbecue restaurant owner in Colorado now says everyone who asks will get a 10-percent discount on ''White Appreciation Day'' next month.

Rubbin Butzz BBQ owner Edgar Antillon, who is Hispanic, says there is a Black History Month, and a Hispanic Heritage Month, but white people also need to be appreciated.

He received criticism and a bomb threat when he originally said the discount would only apply to white people that day.

White Appreciation Day is still planned for June 11.
