The animal-loving radicals from PETA are now exclaiming that white milk is a symbol of white supremacy. No, they are serious. Quit laughing.
In a risible new statement released by the animal rights group, PETA claimed that the dairy industry is the same as white supremacy.
According to ABC 10 News:
“Aside from ‘lactose-tolerant’ white supremacists, cow’s milk really is the perfect drink of choice for all (even unwitting) supremacists, since the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings,” the organization said in part.
“PETA is trying to wake people up to the implications of choosing this white beverage and suggesting that they choose something else pronto,” the statement continues.
The release further claims that the dairy industry has “control over your mind.
Cows' milk has long been a symbol used by white supremacists.

This lunacy was recently echoed by an absurd piece in The New York Times entitled, “Why White Supremacists Are Chugging Milk (and Why Geneticists Are Alarmed).”
The Times article is replete with hyperventilating about “white supremacists” who have begun saying that being able to drink milk somehow proves a “pure” European heritage.
The claim is that cattle herders in Europe developed the ability to tolerate milk whereas other nationalities have not. So, if you can tolerate milk you are a pure-bred, white European.
This ridiculous concept is worrying geneticists and other scientists.
The article went on to say that scientists are alarmed that their science is being used to fuel hate.
But one thing that the Times article lacks is any scope of the number of supposed white supremacists saying this. Is it ten? Is it 100? A thousand? The paper makes no effort at all to quantify this threat.
The paper acts as if this is some kind of monstrous threat. But, seriously… who cares if some few nutballs who believe in white supremacy are “chugging milk”?
The paper made a huge case out of this milk dealio. But, the paper also wasted no time at all telling us just how important this all it.
Since there was no effort to quantify all this to tell us how important it is, it must not be very. It is just an example of liberals crying wolf.
