A Republican lawmaker in Arizona is hoping his state creates a holiday celebrating white people.

According to CBS affiliate in Phoenix, state Rep. Cecil Ash made his request felt on the Arizona House floor this week during a discussion about Latino Americans in Arizona.

After Rep. Richard Miranda suggested that the state should have a Latino American day, Ash made his statement.

“I’m supportive of this proposition,” he said. “I just want them to assure me that when we do become in the minority you’ll have a day for us.”

The comment produced some laughs from his fellow lawmakers who thought Ash was being facetious. However, he revealed later that he was not joking.

“Yes, I think it was appropriate,” he said. “It was appropriate for the mood that was in the House and I think that if and when the Caucasian population becomes a minority, they may want to celebrate the accomplishments and the contributions of the Caucasian population the same way.”

  1. You don’t need to hate to do something racist. Racism is also hurting people because you are clueless. And nothing could be more clueless than proposing White People Day because you don’t get why ethnic groups in America want a day to feel recognized in the face of a mainstream culture that excludes them whether or not they are a physical minority.

    Mexicans do NOT feel welcome in Arizona right now.
