Do you like drinking milk? If so, according to animal rights group PETA, you might be a white supremacist.
It sounds too dumb to be true, but a recent essay by Zachary Toliver posted on PETA’s website goes there.
“Geneticists are alarmed that white nationalists—who are now using milk emojis and sharing photos of themselves chugging milk to celebrate their ‘whiteness’—are contorting science and using it as an excuse to hate,” Toliver writes. “In a recent article in The New York Times, evolutionary biologists state that because of a genetic mutation among Europeans, white people are more likely to be able to digest lactose.”
“White nationalists are arguing that being able to drink another animal’s breast milk somehow indicates that they’re of the ‘master race’—good grief!” he says.
Are white nationalists saying this? Who pays that much attention to those idiots in the first place?
Whether racists are saying milk is pro-white or not, PETA appears to be saying exactly that.
PETA tries to outdo the far left, goes full blown crazy in latest theory that drinking milk makes you a white supremacist lol https://t.co/zbQ1b6IeCe

Milk = White Supremacy?
The PETA post goes on to say that drinking milk contributes to cow “rape” (I’m not kidding) and that anyone who enjoys a glass of what generations of school kids were taught “does a body good” is somehow a moral reprobate on the level of white supremacists.
Again, I’m not kidding. Toliver writes (emphasis added):
Before you pour a glass of the “white stuff,” please remember that it isn’t the “right stuff.”
If you feel that all life should be free of violent control, choose soy, almond, rice, cashew, or coconut milk the next time that you go shopping or order coffee. With so many different types of cruelty-free, delicious milks on the market, opposing supremacists has never been easier.
The post encourages readers to go vegan, including ads.
Whether or not one chooses to become vegan is their own choice. Whether or not one chooses to drink milk is their own choice, too.
And it doesn’t make you a white supremacist. Sorry, PETA.
