PETA are at it again.
But this time it’s not a dodgy ad-campaign using ‘titties and arse’ to save the life of a rabbit or pig.
Nope, this time the buzzword is RACISM.
A glass and a half of full cream white supremacy.
PETA (also known as ‘The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have claimed in a blog post that drinking cow’s milk is a sign of “white supremacy” and is often used symbolically by “extreme right-wing people”.
The ‘blog post’ which has since been edited, stated that:
Drinking milk is the perfect drink of choice for all (even unwitting) supremacists.
Yes of course!
Because that’s what white people think when they consume their lattes and pour some ‘racism’ over their breakfast cereal in the morning.
There’s nothing quite like a bit of ‘white supremacy’ to start the day right and get the digestive system moving.
Apart from the obvious stupidity of PETA’s blog post, which I won’t bother re-hashing.
I find it a tad rich that these claims come from an organisation which uses botoxed celebrities to sell their ‘not tested on animals’ message.
It’s estimated that more than 100 million mice are killed per year (in the US alone) in experiments, so individuals can inject Botox. Hypocrites much?
Anyway, as a white person, I’m personally offended by olives, mushrooms, beetroot, carrots, salami, Coca-Cola, figs, beef, rye bread and dark chocolate.
As a white person, I’m unable to identify with these food and drink products because of their colour and origin.
May I suggest that we start dying ALL foods and drink the same colour, so not to discriminate against anyone? Perhaps fifty shades of beige would suffice?
