As it seems that the thinking of the modern liberal college student could not get any stranger then what do they do? They continue to amaze you with their level of absurdness.
What am I talking about? I am talking about a student at the California State University-Long Beach who recently wrote an opinion piece in the student newspaper on the racist undertones of drinking milk. Yes that’s right the student called milk racist. Let that sink in for a minute. One of the basic building blocks of life according to this student is now racist.
The student in question Samantha Diaz is a staff writer for the Daily 49er published that article on March 13, 2017 entitled “Milk new symbol of hate?” Diaz writes that many Americans “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.”
Diaz also adds in here article:
“It may not surprise you that the United States was founded on racism. That every institution we uphold has racist roots that are sometimes difficult to catch and even harder to fight against. This phenomenon affects our voter ID laws, state testing and, yes, even our federal dietary guidelines.”
“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.”
In her article she claims that drinking milk at the level of the federal dietary guidelines may actually hurt the health of African-Americans, who necessarily need as much calcium as whites do. What did she just claim that the federal dietary guidelines when hurt the health of African-Americans? So we can presume by Samantha Diaz’s train of thought that milk which contains calcium, which is important to bones, is not important the body of some people as it is to others.
Diaz also brings up in her article about Shia LaBeouf’s “He Will Not Divide Us” live stream where people showed up drinking milk on camera. In her words called them white supremacist and internet trolls. How delusional can some people be?
“In an effort to prove their masculinity, a dozen middle-aged white men showed up shirtless, shouting about how they need to ‘secure the future of our diet and the future for milk drinking.”
Samantha Diaz finally ends her hit piece of promoting milk as racist by proclaiming, “Until we recognize the racist roots in our own systems of government and fight to remove them, we are all in part responsible for the white, creamy form of racism currently taking hold in our country.”
If the think The Daily 49er is the only publication to try and push the narrative of racism in the consumption of milk you would be wrong. A website called Mic.com, which looks like a conservative bashing website, published an article in February entitled, “Milk is the new, creamy symbol of white racial purity in Donald Trump’s America.”
This absurd line of thinking has to stop and the funding to these colleges and universities that promote and teach this dangerous line of thought should be unfunded immediately.
