A sign in a deli in Flemington, NJ has the community up in arms.

[su_center_ad]The sign in the deli window says, “CELEBRATE YOUR WHITE HERITAGE IN MARCH, WHITE HISTORY MONTH.”

Jim Boggess, proprietor of Jimbo’s Deli on Main at 22 Main St., says, “No matter what you are — Muslim, Jewish, black, white, gay, straight — you should be proud of what you are. I shouldn’t have to feel bad about being white.”

    Yeah, why not. I’m sure he meant well. He seems inclusive. Just hope his decent & unprejudiced white, Muslim, Jewish, black, gay, straight customers don’t misunderstand him then get offended and stop coming to his Deli.
    I’d say Good Luck to him!

      Let him be…doesn’t have any resemblance to the Texas turkeys we would associate with this type of statement..

      What does a delicatessen serve to celebrate White History Month? Peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches on Wonder Bread with potato chips and some whole milk?

    He should have proofread his sign; in this case, “white” should be replaced by the more accurate “dumbass bigot”.

      This deli is brought to you in part by “Storm Front”. Lol

    Who told him to he should feel bad for being white? I think he should be feeling bad for being so damn ignorant and closed minded especially when there are so many ways to acquire information about topics we are unfamiliar with. We all know who he voted for in Jersey.

    I’d like to know who has been trying to make him “feel bad about being white,” actual people or his conscience?

    Every month is White History Month. Ever seen the History Channel?

    • AmusedAmused March 6th, 2015 at 1:51 pm

      This is a consequence of the white male being perceived as a “default person”. So, history focused on white males is just “history”. Any history dealing with any other demographic is a dishonest construction pandering to SJW.
