Yes, it’s time for another addition of Progressive Outrage at Food.
Yes, I said Food.
You didn’t know food could be Politically Incorrect? Silly, Humans, Liberals are for kids…
There was “cultural appropriation” and now…
First up, that humble staple of the American Diet…
In the minds of liberals, almost everything in this world is somehow racist. Actions taken by white people, no matter how innocuous, are almost always seen as proof of some deep racial bias.
Take chicken wings for example. Food Network star Ree Drummond, who has a show called “Pioneer Woman,” is now being accused of “racism because of what she did with chicken wings, Eater reported.
In a 5-year-old episode of the show, Drummond pulled a prank on her husband and his friend by giving them Asian wings instead of Buffalo wings.
Somehow, in the minds of liberals, this is proof of how racist those people are.
Hey @FoodNetwork – this anti-Asian sentiment being promoted on @thepioneerwoman’s show really isn’t cool. pic.twitter.com/dM1cbXcHKc

“The offensive conceit — that he and his college buddies would be revolted by Asian wings — was clearly written into the show before it was even filmed,” Eater reported.
So in the mind of liberals, not liking the food from a certain culture is clearly proof that you are racist and hate everyone from that culture.
Just because I don’t like Greek food, and wouldn’t be too thrilled if someone gave me Greek food after promising me something else, doesn’t mean I hate all Greek people. It just means I’m not a fan of their food.
The Thick Dumpling Skin blog was the first to complain about the episode, and noted that the Food Network doesn’t have any Asian cooks. Again, somehow this is clear proof of how racist everyone on the network is.
Instead of looking for racism in every nook and cranny possible, maybe liberals should focus on something else. Their obsession with labeling everyone who doesn’t agree with them as “racist” is why so many people loathe liberals, and why they have lost so many elections in recent years. (Conservative Tribune)
But it hardly stops there…It comes by the Gallon…
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 didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.”
But … aren’t our dietary guidelines science? And aren’t progressives all about science, especially in this Age of Trump?
Apparently not when “there is a deep-rooted [American] tradition to suppress an entire race’s 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 people’s health.”
“Osteoporosis,” you see, “affects Africans at a significantly lower rate than it does most Americans,” she writes.
The Mother Jones article [see here] states that not only is milk non-beneficial to Africans, but following the guidelines may actually be detrimental to their health. There is a strong correlation to calcium consumption and an increased risk of prostate cancer, unproportionally affecting African men. Furthermore, both black children and adults generally secrete less calcium on a daily basis than white people, making them less dependent upon milk.
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.
I think i’d blow this Liberals mind in tiny bits if she new there was such a thing as WHITE Africans…most notably Afrikaners. I used to know one, so it’s not a mythical being…
What Diaz leaves out from the Mother Jones article is that the director of the Women’s Global Health Institute at Purdue University — an expert on osteoporosis — says she “doesn’t think African Americans should consume less dairy.”
The insinuation of racism comes from University of North Texas evolutionary historian Constance Hilliard:
[T]he federal government’s dietary recommendations don’t account for such [racial] distinctions. And that omission, she says, amounts to something like discrimination. “What has happened is the medical community has universalized the particular biology of [Caucasians].
Let’s face it: If you’re particularly concerned about your diet, consult a physician. Don’t rely on the feds for guidance; they’ve bungled dietary recommendations before, after all.
It’s quite a stretch, however, to allege nutritional guidelines are just another example of, as Diaz says, the “inanimate face of racism.” (College Fix)
Apparently, this all stems from internet trolls finding a Mother Jones article, which Diaz provides no source for (here, Samantha, I’ll do your job as a journalist for you), which asks another question, “Are the U.S. Dietary Guidelines on Milk Racist?” (MRC)
I’m betting the expiration, printed in black on the cartoon, is a subtle racist marker for the extermination of black people, right?
