I also thought liberals were supposed to be vegan, amirite?
I’m vegan and I’m not a liberal. Czech beer rules!

Not sure who is worse

A. The person who writes such worthless drivel.
B. The paper that pays said person to write said worthless drivel and then publish it
C. The readers who likely pay to read the worthless drivel behind the paywall of the papers website and then "debate" the nonsense, giving it even more unneeded attention.

They're all to blame. Who is worse is up for debate.

This is a good example of "Sailer's Law of Female Journalism":
Quote:
The most heartfelt articles by female journalists tend to be demands that social values be overturned in order that, Come the Revolution, the journalist herself will be considered hotter-looking.
Notice the second sentence of her article:
Quote:
Given that big beer makers for decades courted male consumers with sexist TV ads featuring women in bikinis, it perhaps surprises no one that the craft beer business has become a haven for white males
Since the writer is someone few would like to see showing more skin, it isn't surprising that she wants bikinis gone. She's hoping for a future bikini-less world where white male hipsters, properly ashamed of their racist attitudes and enthralled by diversity, show more interest in frumpy, fully clothed Asian women with big vocabularies.

We should look at the tampon industry. I believe it to be sexist.

Craft beer in America... and pot in Canada. The scourge of white racism knows no borders.

The unbearable whiteness of weed: Canada’s booming cannabis industry has a race problem
...even a surface-level analysis of the rapidly growing cannabis industry in Canada reveals a troubling trend: The profits and wealth being generated are overwhelmingly landing in the pockets of white Canadians.

...the Boston Globe, the Globe and Mail... pretty much all the globes. And you better care too, buddy, or you'll be considered part of the problem.

Craft beer and legal pot need to follow the example of the cocaine and heroin industries and involve more POC, otherwise it's racist.

Now stop with your rational, logic thinking-- we don't have time for that here.

... at the level of a 6-year-old who hasn't learned that not all statements are meant to be taken literally. No, the beer itself is not being called racist.
