Leftists Now Arguing That Milk Is A Symbol of Racism
Milk has become the new symbol of hate and white-supremacy in America, according to the bizarre logic from today’s Social Justice Warriors.
Before we begin, readers are warned to stretch first because of the vigorous mental gymnastics that are going to be necessary to understand the Left’s reasoning on this issue.
Samantha Dias, a writer for California State University’s newspaper, Daily49er, penned an article about the subtle racism that exists in milk.
“You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.”
Her analysis begins by laying out the foundation that America was founded on racism. As with many modern-day Social Justice Warriors, there is nothing good about America because slavery was in existence during the time of the nation’s founding.
Never-mind the fact that slavery was also occurring on every other continent across the globe, including Africa. Never mind the fact that there were black slave owners in America. And certainly never mind the fact that only a small percentage of Americans actually owned slaves.
For the Left, America will always be evil because there was a point in time in which the country participated in the disgusting slave trade that was prevalent in the world at that point in time in mankind’s history.
In any event, Samantha Diaz makes the argument that federal guidelines regarding the appropriate level of milk intake, three glasses a day, is racist because African-Americans do not have as much of a problem with osteoporosis as their Caucasian peers.
Diaz bases her argument on a study that was reported on in the Left-wing publication, Mother Jones, which made the case that Africans do not benefit from consuming milk because Africans are genetically adapted to low-calcium diets.
One of the points that Diaz seems to have missed is that the study was done by an evolutionary historian, Constance Hilliard.
Via Mother Jones:
“Hilliard makes no dietary recommendations—after all, she is a historian, not a nutritionist.”
The article goes on to state that African-Americans are more than twice as likely to develop prostate cancer, and points out that some studies have attributed prostate cancer to dairy intake. Again, this is just speculation, and has not been proven. Yet Mother Jones writer Josh Harkinson asks the question of whether or not the one-size-fits-all approach to dietary guidelines is a form of discrimination.
Daily49er writer, Samantha Diaz, builds on this theory by suggesting that there should be multiple dietary guidelines to accommodate the needs of each of the races in America:
“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.
And since the African American community in the U.S. is continuously rising, it seems only logical to acknowledge that while something may be beneficial for one group of people, that may not be the case for another.”
Just imagine, for a moment, if Diaz was taken seriously, and the federal government followed her suggestion.
Imagine if the Trump administration released the following guidelines:
- If you are white, you should consume 3-4 glasses of milk each day.
- If you are black, you should consume 1-2 glasses of milk each day.
You already know that the narrative would be that the new guidelines (A) are racist because white people are benefiting from white privilege because they get more milk and (B) are racist because they are segregating the races.
You cannot hope to win with Social Justice Warriors because they will forever find ways of declaring something to be racist, sexist, or whatever-phobic no matter what situation they are in.
Diaz did not mention whether or not milk is still a form of white-supremacy if we added chocolate syrup to it.
