Milk is Now Racist! Didn’t You Know?!
You know the old saying, “Milk does a body good?” Well, it does, and you’re a racist.
Samantha Diaz, a writer for California State University-Long Beach’s (CSULB) newspaper “D49er,” wrote an article this past Monday asking the question, “Milk, new symbol of hate?”
In case you’re not familiar with Diaz’s article/argument, here you go:
The federal endorsement of milk in American diets contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health.
Diaz references a study that states that 75 percent of African-Americans are lactose intolerant. Therefore, touting the health benefits of milk ignores non-white people, and is intrinsically racist.
“It may not surprise you that the United States was founded on racism,” Diaz added, by way of explanation. “That every institution we uphold has racist roots that are sometimes difficult to catch and even harder to fight against.”
Diaz goes on to argue that white nationalists and neo-nazis are using milk as a form of white supremacy.
Really? Seriously? What’s next? Elmer’s glue and plain yogurt are racist, too, right? Why don’t we just classify anything that has the color “white” in it or on it as “racist,” while we’re at it. And what about chocolate milk? That’s not white. Although, it very well could be white milk masquerading as chocolate milk, and that’s cultural appropriation. Just another form of closet racism — somehow.
Apparently, this all stems from internet trolls finding a Mother Jones article, which Diaz provides no source for (here, Samantha, I’ll do your job as a journalist for you), which asks another question, “Are the U.S. Dietary Guidelines on Milk Racist?”
No! No, they’re not! The crazy portion of the ever-growing liberal population have been trying to prove that white people are racist for so long that they’ve jumped the shark and become the predominant purveyors of racism themselves.
But Diaz takes the Mother Jones article as gospel — particularly the excerpt stating that “milk is non-beneficial to Africans.”
Here’s another little nugget of dumb from Diaz:
Remember that this is the dietary guidelines for Americans. I want to emphasize that last word. These guidelines are for Americans. This means they should reflect the health needs of the ethnicities that make up America which, news flash, isn’t just white people.
Oh, the life of the Social Justice Warrior is so hard, having to alert for every smidgen of politically incorrect language, action or heaven forefend, a impious thought that violates the Progressive dogma.
There must be no rest for those securing the ramparts of citizen thought control. The State must be preserved.
