N.B. Forrest's "Negro mart"
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.
Asked about it later, Ash said:
Yes, 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.
Let me help out Mr. Ash here with a suggested date: July 13, the birthday of Nathaniel Bedford Forrest, slave trader and founder of the Klux Klan.
