California Student Writes Op-Ed About How Milk Is Racist Symbol

By Justin Caruso, The Daily Caller:

“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.”

A student at the California State University – Long Beach recently penned an op-ed opining on the racist undertones of drinking milk.

In a Daily 49er article published March 13, entitled, “Milk new symbol of hate?,” staff writer Samantha 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 says, “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.”
