Here comes another strange political story out of Arizona. After a Latino state representative made that case for a Latino American Day, Cecil Ash, a white Republican rep, said while he supported the measure — he thinks their ought to be a day to commemorate white people. The Huffington Post reports:

Enter Cecil Ash, a Republican from Mesa, who feels that what Arizona needs now is an official holiday for white folks.

The idea apparently came to Ash after state Rep. Richard Miranda proposed a Latino American Day. “I wanted to speak to you all about Latino Americans here in Arizona,” Miranda said on the House floor Monday.

After some debate, Ash stepped forward with his grand idea.

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