Posted on 03/16/2017 7:07:52 AM PDT by Hube
In an op-ed featured in the California State University-Long Beach student paper Daily 49er, Samantha Diaz follows up on stories about the silly usurpation of milk by white supremacists by arguing that yes, the dairy beverage really is racist.
All of us have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk, Diaz writes, that you probably didnt even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.
But arent our dietary guidelines science? And arent progressives all about science, especially in this Age of Trump?
Apparently not when there is a deep-rooted [American] tradition to suppress an entire races existence, Diaz says.
Federal guidelines which state Americans should drink three cups of milk per day do not take into account the potential detriment it has on non-white peoples health.
Osteoporosis, you see, affects Africans at a significantly lower rate than it does most Americans, she writes.

Springtime for nitwits and Nitwittery!
Winter for reason and thought....
What if it is chocolate milk? You know, milk of color.
So chocolate milk is racist too?
Samantha Diaz is imbibing more than milk. Unhinged.
Another unhappy college student. Too bad.
Do black women express brown milk when nursing?? Then milk can’t be racist.
As a graduate of CSULB, I apologize for both this twit and the dummy that created Kwanzaa.
Just think: Parents are PAYING to have their kids exposed to this idiocy.
And now we know why Democrats want ‘free’ college - just in case parents wise up.
The races, so called, emerged from a common ancestry through adaptation, or the survival of the fittest. Those possessing the genetic traits best suited to the conditions of the place that they found themselves.
Up north, the ability to ingest milk and cheese as an adult was important for survival during the winter when food was scarce and you had to rely on stored food (e.g., cheese) and milk from livestock. Accordingly, the humans with this trait tended to survived to reproductive age, and their genes were passed on. In the tropical zone, the ability to ingest milk as an adult wasn’t significant. So, the trait enabling the ingestion of milk as an adult did not come to dominate.
In terms of “master race,” each race was the master race of its local conditions.
There are other genetic traits and cultural norms that differentiate humans by latitude. For example, immunity or lack of immunity to diseases of the jungle, skin pigmentation (since we are mostly hairless), certain kinds of muscularity. I don’t know that anybody has a complete list.
Nowadays, such differences are of little consequence. We have taken control of local conditions, e.g., heating and air conditioning. Pale-skinned humans can put on sun block or stay indoors most of the time when in the south. Lactose-intolerant humans - like other humans - can eat any kind of food they like in the north, through purchase of food at a supermarket.
But, instead of studying race from a scientific perspective, progressive-socialists choose to politicalize the subject because it’s in their political advantage to sow hatred and to pit us against each other.
There goes my addiction to dulce de leche. Bummer.

Sweetheart, if we really wanted y’all gone, y’all would be gone.
Any non white who drinks milk is guilty of appropriation?
Is there no end to campus idiocy? People are borrowing money to send their children there for indoctrination.
They eat green grass.
What’s the tribe (guess I can’t use that word) in Africa that subsists on milk and blood? The Massai?
Snow is racist, too.
This thread just cries out for a chocolate milk response.
You owe me a new laptop, rotfl.
