State Rep. Cecil Ash (R-AZ)On the House floor Monday, state Representative Cecil Ash (R-Arizona), suggested that Arizona create a White Appreciation Day when White Americans are no longer the majority in the United States, reports CBS5AZ.com.

Ash made the oddly not surprising statement — as it’s coming from the land of Governor Jan Brewer, revisionist history books and the most repellant immigration laws in the nation — after State Rep. Richard Miranda voiced his support for a Latino Appreciation Day:

“I wanted to speak to you all about Latino Americans here in Arizona,” said Rep. Miranda on the House floor.

After contentious debate on the floor, Rep. Ash stepped to the microphone and said that he was in definite support of the proposition — on one condition:

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

Meeting with laughs on the House floor, the sentiment was supported by at least one Arizonian asked by CBS5:

“Good idea. Like they have Cinco de Mayo for Mexicans. We need something for whites.”

Ash claims that even though he was honest in his statement that White Americans need an appreciation day, he was not trying to be inflammatory; he just wanted to lighten the mood on the House floor:

“There was a little contention there so I was just really trying to lighten things up a little bit,” Ash said. “I think it was appropriate. 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.”

Apparently, Ash wants this ‘Appreciation Day’ to happen sooner rather than later.

According to the 2010 Census, White children made up the minority of children being born for the first time in United States history. Still, considering that White Appreciation occurs in this country 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, I don’t think we’ll see any affirmative action holidays in the near future.
