We know there’s such a thing as white people food because last summer HuffPost published an important piece revealing that there’s a perception in the black community that eating healthy means eating like white people, and that stigma was keeping blacks from eating healthy foods.
But now there’s a study saying that it’s white people food that is killing the planet, so does that mean white people should start eating black people food? It all sounds kind of racist to us, but it’s just science:

White people are already accused of hogging the majority of jobs, film roles, and housing — and now they’re getting blamed for eating up Earth’s natural resources, too.
Caucasian populations are disproportionately contributing to climate change through their eating habits, which uses up more food — and emits more greenhouse gases — than the typical diets of black and Latinx communities, according to a new report published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology.
Researchers tracked information from multiple databases to identify foods considered “environmentally intense” by requiring more precious resources such as water, land and energy to produce — and, as a result, releasing more greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide through production and distribution.
So white people food is more “environmentally intense” than black or Latino people food. Got it.

You know what’s odd? ?
I’ve seen people who are NOT white eating the same foods as people who ARE white.
But that can’t be because the Post says it the “white peoples’ ” diet.

Lol I wasn’t aware food was being segregated into categories. I also didn’t know that potatoes, beef, apples and milk are specifically “white people food” ??? this country is just getting crazier and crazier pic.twitter.com/opwbKfmT1E

Maybe we should start eating white people to help the environment recover? pic.twitter.com/LlvmUCQjI5

Funny how the article and the linked summary of the study both exclude the largest demographic group in the world.
Why is that?

Studies like this, have no correlation. Just another fake study, by a fake journalist to create a fake argument to convince idiots who actually believe this, that we need to control literally everything and everyone. Stfu already ?

Just as an aside, you do know where they got that “97 percent of all scientists believe in man-made climate change,” right? Someone sat down and went through journals and counted the number of published papers on climate change — journals exactly like the one that published this study.
It’s insane to me that white liberals are given license to call black conservatives traitors to their race when all I ever see them do is bash their own race ?
I’m an American…..color should be irrelevant on this little a stage for crying out loud ??♂️

Just think – someone wrote this…then some editor passed it on…then some manager approved it for publishing…and THEN they decided to blast it out to the world. Amazing

HuffPost: Blacks think a healthy diet means eating white people food, and that's a problem https://t.co/jsHANrABk4
