Argentina's anti-discrimination government agency (Instituto Nacional Contra la Discriminación, la Xenofobia y el Racismo, INADI) has presented a proposal for a decree that would rename the October 12 public holiday, commonly called "Día de la Raza", into "Día de la Diversidad Cultural Americana".

Recall that in 2002 (2002-10-12), Venezuela similarly changed the name of its October 12 public holiday.
