    Default Trump proclaims Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 National Hispanic Heritage Month

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press...ctober-15-2017

    Whoa! Did he talk to Steve Bannon or Ann Coulter before doing this? How about Beauregard Sessions?

    NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH, 2017

    - - - - - - -

    BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    A PROCLAMATION


    During National Hispanic Heritage Month, we celebrate the accomplishments of Hispanic Americans who have helped shape our great Nation. We are grateful for the many contributions Hispanic American men and women make to our society and the vibrancy they weave into our American culture.

    From America's earliest days, Hispanic Americans have played a prominent and important role in our national heritage, and Hispanic Americans continue to embody the pioneering spirit of America today. Demonstrating a steadfast commitment to faith, family, and hard work, Hispanic Americans lift up our communities and our economy as entrepreneurs, executives, and small business owners, and make contributions in areas such as science, art, music, politics, academia, government, and sports. In fact, Hispanic-owned small businesses are the fastest growing businesses in America, starting at a pace 15 times the national average over the last decade. Hispanic Americans own more than three million American businesses and serve with honor in all branches of the Armed Forces, continuing a strong legacy of dedication to our country that has seen the Medal of Honor awarded to 60 Hispanic Americans. Hispanic Americans are a testament to the American promise that anyone can succeed in the United States through hard work.

    Hispanic Americans strengthen our bonds with our Latin American neighbors, with whom we share a rich history. We are united with them in hemispheric solidarity, based on a shared commitment to democratic principles. To secure a more prosperous, free Western Hemisphere, we are working to advance and maintain democracy in the region and secure free and fair trade among our regional partners. My Administration is dedicated to securing human rights in Cuba and Venezuela, and strengthening our cultural and philosophical ties with all our Latin American partners.

    This month, we recognize the countless contributions of Hispanic Americans that help make our Nation a thriving and secure land of opportunity. To honor the achievements of Hispanic Americans, the Congress by Public Law 100-402, as amended, has authorized and requested the President to issue annually a proclamation designating September 15 through October 15 as "National Hispanic Heritage Month."

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 15 through October 15, 2017, as National Hispanic Heritage Month. I call upon public officials, educators, librarians, and all Americans to observe this month with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirteenth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

    DONALD J. TRUMP

    When is Caucasian heritage month? Has this group contributed anything to America? Invented anything of note that made modern society what it is today? Each group should have a month. It's only fair. So why not Caucasians since the media divides everyone into racial groups...Caucasians have helped some in science, engineering, communications, medicine, airplanes, electricity, automobiles, technology, just to name a few...So give em their due along with the other groups. Everyone needs something positive said about them...Its the fair way for all...Heck, who invented TV, radio, and motion pictures, cameras, etc....Those were pretty big were they not? Air conditioning too..Now that was really big.

    Negative. When the Caucasian majority established de jure racism to keep other races down over a long period of time, they lost the right to celebrate their own race in a public manner.

    As a Caucasian myself, I do not feel the slightest bit limited by this basic set of circumstances.

    Its the same reason overtly nationalistic displays are disallowed in Germany.

    To that, many on this board would probably say "but whites get none of the advantages allll those other groups get!". WAAHHH! Cry me a river!

    If you are a white male, is there ANY other race/color/gender you'd rather be?

    I'm a white male and I wouldn't want to be:
    -black
    -hispanic
    -native American
    -female

    I really wouldn't want ot be anything other than white male.

    We won. We continue to win. All because other groups are getting some advantage finally doesn't mean I would trade in my lily white skin in exchange.

    White men need to stop being the snowflakes they look like.

    More accurately, wealthy Caucasians kept other races and other classes down.

    Somewhere deep in the bowels of the White House, Dick Morris must have opened up an office.
