Slate Turkey: White Meat Is Racist

At this point it can’t be easy for liberals to push their absurd ideology ever deeper into self-parody. Yet they manage:

Just before Thanksgiving last week, the liberal site Slate dredged up a 2010 piece claiming that the reason Americans love the white meat on a turkey is because we are all racists.

Ron Rosenbaum pondered the timeless philosophical question of why some people prefer white meat.

“It was enough to make me wonder whether there could be a racial, if not racist, subtext here,” he wrote.

Before long Rosenbaum had worked himself into a full lather, spewing spittle as he raved:

“Despite its superior taste, dark meat has dark undertones for some. Dark meat evokes the color of earth, soil. Dark meat seems to summon up ancient fears of contamination and miscegenation as opposed to the supposed superior purity of white meat. I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that white meat remains the choice of a holiday that celebrates Puritans.”

Needless to say, if liberal ideology had any validity whatsoever, moonbats wouldn’t be so hard pressed to find racism that isn’t directed against whites.

Racist meat.

    Want to bet that somebody got a quarter million dollar government grant to study this “problem”?

  4. well ya know says:

    I get Black&Whites at the bakery, but I only eat the white side. That’s the way us racists roll.

  5. V328 says:

    Oh Give Me A F—-g Break! If you don’t eat dark meat you’re branded as racist… if you like pork “the other white meat” then they may brand you as Islamaphobic… OH but if you like chicken sandwiches from a particular establishment then you’re branded “homophobic”. Seriously WTF? They’re crazy. It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore just to be branded, restaurants go bust and the economy and jobs suffer. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting more unhinged, and all we say is, ‘Please, at least leave us alone in our homes. Let us have our Thankgiving turkey and our Christmas tree, and our Nativity scene. Stop trying to kill our holidays…” If our holidays are destroyed, then those who killed it better be working on those days because you know we’ll have to be. “We’re as mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore…Just leave us alone.”

  6. Louisiana Steve says:

    You’re a racist if you like dark meat too. By the way, are you still ‘Dreaming of a White Christmas’? Oh the horror, the horror.

  7. Noelegy says:

    Dark meat–to me–tastes slippery and nasty. I give myself up to my racist destiny.

  8. son of a preacher man says:

    Did these same racist white meat eaters also avoid going out shopping on black friday?

  9. eMatters says:

    Of course preferring white meat is racist! That’s why Americans prefer hamburgers over pork chops (“the other white meat”) at a ratio of about 1,000 to 1 . . . oh, wait, that goes the other direction . . .

    If we preferred dark meat they’d claim we were racist cannibals.

  10. Tim says:

    saved from being a fake racist again as I actually MUCH prefer dark meat to the white meat, so what else you got Libtards?

  11. Jimbo says:

    I don’t like turkey, period. But I love chocolate milk. Let the morons known as liberals figure that one out.

  12. Comrade J says:

    when all you’ve got is a hammer [aka libtarded brains], everything looks like…

  13. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Hey why fight insanity ?
    What about white bread vs wheat ?
    Red licorice vs black ?
    White chocolate vs dark ?
    And the creme a la creme,
    regular Oreo’s vs double stuffed ?
    (oops did I say that) ?

  14. Enabler says:

    Why don’t we just embrace being Racist? Obviously, White Christian Men went to the moon, built the automobile, engineered 5 lane highways, built Hospitals, and made “the Bomb” that stopped WW2 and we beat the Nazis. Who the Hell else has done anything in Modern History besides White Men?! Everyone else has made progress in “peanut butter” and “social justice” which doesn’t progress our country at all. I know this sounds absurd, but honestly, I don’t feel guily of being white, I’m proud. If that makes me a racist, then so be it. I’m a proud, White, Racist.

  15. Enabler says:

    And another thing, if we didn’t take this land from the “Native Americans,” we would have none of the luxuries we have now. “Native Americans” weren’t here first, they just lived in North America. Then the White Man came with an idea, and built the United States. I can’t stand this garbage.

  16. Marian says:

    Please just shut the f__k up

  17. TonyD95B says:

    I like my dark turkey meat…..Oh YEAH, baby!!!!!

    I Celebrate Diversity!!! I eat cow, deer, bear, pig (wild and domestic – doesn’t matter!!!), chicken, turkey, pheasant, duck, goose, all sorts of fish……h#ll, PETA has a picture of me in every branch office!

    I have never been a fan of dark beer, though – and I drink a lot of beer……so I guesss they “got” me!!!!! Hahahahah.

  18. […] the most inane charge of RAAAAACISM yet. Those who prefer white meat in turkey, or chicken are RAAAAACISTS! At this point it can’t be easy for liberals to push their absurd ideology ever deeper into […]

  19. Kevin in WA says:

    So…shoppers on “Black Friday” are racist too??

  20. Highway Hospital Student says:

    I see.

    So that’s why the little brothers have black rum in their bottles instead of milk.

  21. oldguy says:

    Yea, I’m a white racist. I dislike the majority of white Jews, the majority of white teachers, the majority of white actors, the majority of white newspersons and the majority of white people who live in the blue states. Blacks; I don’t have much of a problem with.

  22. Spider says:

    “Beware of those who cry racism, for they are the true racists…”

  23. A_Nonny_Mouse says:

    For the record, I like WHITE turkey on WHITE-bread toast, slathered with WHITE mayonnaise (ok, perhaps just a touch of Grey Poupon) with Swiss cheese (which is pretty darn WHITE, too).

    So freakin’ sue me…

  24. Bo-Jangles says:

    Sadly, most people don’t have the courage to be honest. If they did, they wouldn’t be so afraid to say what most people know and what is so obvious. That is, generally speaking, the most racist people in the country are, blacks.

  25. Antisocialist says:

    Ain’t secularization great? 😉

    Atheism makes you crazy, some more than others.

  26. Jester says:

    Oh — this one’s like shooting fish in a barrel. Let the Jester explain:

    1: Progressives are unable to understand America or capitalism.
    2: Turkey is the symbol of Thanksgiving, an American capitalist holiday.
    3: Progressives automatically label anything they are unable to understand as racism.
    4: Problem solved.

    Too easy, Van Helsing! Give me a challenging one!

  27. Bob Roberts says:

    Actually I’m a (mostly) white guy, but I like dark meat. Not exclusively, mind you, that would be racist, right? I like it ALSO, I should say. I’ll settle for a turkey leg and let you have the wing. We can fight over the breasts.

  28. Bob Roberts says:

    TonyD95B says: November 27, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    Call, e-mail and text PETA this one obvious question:

    If we aren’t supposed to eat meat, why does it taste so good?

  29. Bob Roberts says:

    Enabler says: November 27, 2012 at 4:16 pm
    In fact if the DNA evidence is correct, there were no “native Americans”. EVERYONE who was ever here had an ancestor who came here from somewhere else.

    I’m as “native American” as anyone, as is anyone else who was born here.

  30. Bob Roberts says:

    Ghost of FA Hayek says: November 27, 2012 at 4:07 pm
    Wheat and other multigrain/unbleached breads, but in moderation.
    Red licorice. Didn’t you hear, black is bad for you. But again only in moderation.
    Dark chocolate, of course, just enough.
    And no, no oreo. Generally no cookies, unless you must then maybe walnut chocolate chip?

  31. TED says:

    The left are in competition, for the height of STUPID. The most STUPID wins as we have seen Nov. 6th.

  32. TED says:

    And they use to say “it will make you go blind”, NOW we know the TRUE effect! Liberalism.

  33. octa bright says:

    The Civil Rights leadership is the self proclaimed foe of Whites. Let’s treat them as such.

  34. james says:

    Jewish communists are known to use the divide and conquer method to destroy nations they infest.

  35. bobdog says:

    Why don’t they just cut to the chase instead of pussy-footing around the subject.

    EVERYTHING is racist if you’re a liberal.

  36. Keith in Seattle says:

    @ James: Your dumbass has just proved every poster here’s point of the ignorance and insanity of the left. Take your anti-Semite shit to hell with you…

  37. 762x51 says:

    Rantings like this are why liberals make such excellent targets. Silencing their vomitus ravings will be soooo satisfying.

  38. whotothewhat says:

    So putting turkey white meat between two pieces of white bread after slathering Mayo all over it should make me a UBER Racist.

    MMMMMMM delicious racism..

  39. […] am not making this up: Slate says white turkey is racist– Of course preferring white meat is racist! That’s why Americans prefer hamburgers over […]

  40. Jeffery says:

    Race is a social construct designed to control you.

  41. Brendan Rizzo says:

    I am a liberal, and I don’t have a prefer one type of meat over the other.

    There goes your strawman, Moonbattery.
