Skip to comments.Why White Supremacists Are Chugging Milk (and Why Geneticists Are Alarmed)

Nowhere on the agenda of the annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics, being held in San Diego this week, is a topic plaguing many of its members: the recurring appropriation of the fields research in the name of white supremacy.
Sticking your neck out on political issues is difficult, said Jennifer Wagner, a bioethicist and president of the groups social issues committee, who had sought to convene a panel on the racist misuse of genetics and found little traction.
But the specter of the fields ignominious past, which includes support for the American eugenics movement, looms large for many geneticists in light of todays white identity politics. They also worry about how new tools that are allowing them to home in on the genetic basis of hot-button traits like intelligence will be misconstrued to fit racist ideologies.
In recent months, some scientists have spotted distortions of their own academic papers in far-right internet forums. Others have fielded confused queries about claims of white superiority wrapped in the jargon of human genetics. Misconceptions about how genes factor into Americas stark racial disparities have surfaced in the nations increasingly heated arguments over school achievement gaps, immigration and policing.

This was a troll created by 4chan.
NYT as always, in the sewer, advertising for the tiny fringe irrelevant racists.
I enjoy chugging chocolate milk, what kind of a supremacist does that make me?
“This was a troll created by 4chan.”
What was? Chugging milk? (I’m not reading more than this excerpt because it’s garbage).
I thought it sounded familiar.
Oh good grief.
I never realized that the milk - it does a body good was a racist dog whistle campaign.
Altering or even suppressing your results because you fear that the info may be used by socio political groups you hate is, in and of itself, a form of hate speech, let alone an assault on science and objectivity.
But thats ok these days because objectivity is dead because some twit confuses it with ayn rands objectivism so everything is relative now and truth doesnt exist. (Ergo facts dont exist either but they havent gotten there... yet...)
I never thought Id see a day where smart people act like the mob in Monty pythons search for the holy grail (and do witches do? Float? And why else floats? Wood? And wood burns? Yeah - so if she float like a duck... shes a witch burn her!)
Ice Cold Whole Milk - yum!!!!
The only real solution to the grave problem of the milk racial superiority agenda is to spend billions bioengineering cows to produce transparent milk.
Ice Cream? Yeow that is COLD!
I used to do part time work at a convenience store. Every morning the rush was on as people started their work day, which included getting drinks. Coffee, soda, iced tea...and chocolate milk. Every single bottle of chocolate milk was sold to a white adult male. Never even one time to a woman, a child or a minority. I’m not drawing a conclusion. I just found it interesting.
You Sir, clearly hate White people...
It is hard for me to imagine that this rag has gathered enough NPCs to stay in business. There must be WAY more non-thinking people out there than I thought.
So. Let’s get this straight. They pulled a detail about a few loonies drinking dairy and made a thesis about it? How absurd. Loonies will always be with us. How can an academic possibly give a sh×t about that? How can a journalist create a thesis? How can he write that article and not mention Margaret Sanger?
I enjoy it immensely but it is very fattening.
Say, Amy, why don’t you write a piece about the Talmudic-Kabbalahists, humm?
You know, those liars that make white supremacists look like choir boys.
You know, those “people” who think the world is supposed at their beck and call.
I drink milk. I like mike. I drink lots of milk.
Does this mean that I am not qualified to sit on the Supreme Court?
