Why White Supremacists Are Chugging Milk
A genetic trait known to be more common in white people than others is the ability to digest lactose as adults, a textbook uses this fact as an example of evolution according to John Novembre, a University of Chicago evolutionary biologist.
White supremacists are quoting the textbook and apparently chugging milk at gatherings.
The gene that allows for the digestion of lactose switches off after childhood. But with the arrival of the first cattle herders in Europe some 5,000 years ago, a chance mutation that left it turned on provided enough of a nutritional leg up that nearly all of those who survived eventually carried it.
Thus the white supremacist slogan: “If you can’t drink milk, you have to go back.”
But, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, in an inconvenient truth for white supremacists, a similar bit of evolution turns out to have occurred among cattle breeders in East Africa.
