UK taxpayer to fund ‘woke’ study into link between milk and ‘colonialism’

Milking It study news

New taxpayer-funded research, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council in the UK, is set to examine the connections between milk and colonialism.

Led by Dr. JC Niala from the History of Science Museum and Dr. Johanna Zetterstrom-Sharp from UCL, the project, titled “Milking it: colonialism, heritage & everyday engagement with dairy,” will delve into the political nature of milk as a daily substance. The researchers will focus on historical and contemporary engagements with milk, especially in Britain and Kenya, using tools like milk diaries, archival research, and participatory podcasting.

The project aims to uncover how colonial legacies influence current issues and impact people’s lives, with special attention to communities intersecting with industry, aid, and government regulation.

Dr. Zetterstrom-Sharp, who has previously discussed Northern Europe’s historical fixation on milk and its implications, asserts that the mass production and consumption of milk outside Europe can be seen as a form of ‘white supremacy.’

The research will investigate both the real and imagined aspects of milk, revealing its intimate and political dimensions.

  1. It’s obvious, isn’t it: Milk is racist because it’s white. Also, white paper is racist. White cars are racist. The term “whitewash” (to denote a cover up) is racist. What about the white lines painted on roads? Disgusting! All that naked whiteness! It should not be allowed!

    Some of these people belong in padded cells. Are they mentally ill?

  2. We are seeing public money wasted on similar bull**** here in NZ. Grants of $800K of public money for wibbly wobbly studies, that are basically woke nonsense…..

    Meantime essential services are neglected….
