Got Racism?

Did you know milk is a symbol of white supremacy? No? Well you need to get in touch with your inner liberal and commune with Samantha Diaz, a staff writer for California State University Long Beach student newspaper, The Daily 49er, as she explains in her article on March 13, 2017 how white supremacists and neo-Nazis are appropriating milk as a symbol of hate. Below is an excerpt from her article:
When you think of milk, what first comes to your mind? If you’re a millennial, you probably think of strong bones, Got Milk? commercials, or maybe eating your favorite cereal while watching cartoons on a Saturday morning. 
What about racism? White nationalism? If you’re having trouble finding the connection between these institutions and milk, you’re not alone. You, along with the rest of the nation, 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 goes so far as to say the United States was founded on racism and that every institution we uphold has racist roots while claiming we are a “post-racist America”.

Now, most people reading her article may think this satire but given the source, sadly, it is indicative of young liberal college students who, too often, have a dysfunctional tendency  of making arguments without reason and expecting their audience to just accept their conclusion “because they said so”.

Diaz leaves her readers with a stunning call to action with this gem of a sentence:
"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.”

So get out your pitch-forks and knives because we, ladies and gentlemen of logical thought and reasoning, must fight the daemon milk to save America.
