PETA: Milk Is A Symbol Of White Supremacy

Drinking milk is a symbol of white supremacy, PETA says

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – It’s a year-old message that’s making the rounds again thanks to a recent tweet from PETA: Drinking milk is a sign of white supremacy.

In a press release issued by the animal rights group in March of 2017, the group claims that “dairy milk has long been embraced as a symbol of white supremacy.”

The press release then links to an article from the U.K. news site Metro, which claims there’s a secret Nazi code hidden in a cup of milk.

According to the Metro report, white supremacists allegedly use milk as a symbol for their superiority because only one-third of people produce a lactose enzyme that allows them to drink milk — and those “lactose hotspots” occur in countries with mostly-white populations.

The story found new life when PETA posted a link on its Twitter feed on Oct. 18.

Here’s how social media has been reacting.

A lot of people noticed a link between white supremacy and milk was missing from PETA’s article

Some had more clever responses

While other were, uh, speechless

Many wondered if it was a joke

The message was clear, whether it was aimed at PETA, white supremacists, or both
