Licious Way to Live

These days, when everything is racist, I've found an image that causes me great confusion:



Is this picture racist? Tolerant? Inclusive? Color blind? Black and white? Or just a couple of kids holding glasses of milk? Should Darigold be praised or protested? Should we buy their milk or boycott their products? Are they suggesting racial/gender harmony with their checkerboard white/chocolate girl/boy milk montage? Or are they suggesting that interracial relationships are a cold product of societal pasteurization?

And why is the boy black while the girl is white? Are they suggesting that black men will be stealing all our white women? After all, the girl is holding the chocolate milk, while the boy is holding the white milk. Are they suggesting that our children drink forbidden milk?

Maybe the milk/skin combinations are suggesting racial preferences, since, obviously, only an idiot would prefer white milk to chocolate, except that the white kid got the chocolate milk. Maybe the black kid got white milk to show how African Americans are treated as second class citizens. Would the picture be more or less racist if the kids were holding milk of their own color? What if the boy was white and the girl black?

Also, where are Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, etc? What kind of milk do these under-represented flavors drink? Now I'm really confused. Liberal or conservative, progressive or the opposite, please help!!!

The Lactose Intolerant League cries out for recognition that Milk is extremely dangerous and potentially as lethal as a gun!

The Lactose Intolerant League can take my milk from my cold, dead, calcium fortified hands.
