I don't understand the relation between being white and cheese? I mean, I'm half-white as well and I don't particularly like cheese? Though my father is white and he loves cheese, so maybe you have a point. I don't know, I'm confused.

There’s actually a scientific explanation!! If I remember correctly…

Nature never intended for us to drink the milk of animals. Like, we technically should get all the vitamins/nutrients we need from breastfeeding. And in most places of the world, people were okay getting by without drinking milk from other sources!

We’re all born with the enzyme lactase that helps us digest milk, which is necessary when we’re young and still breast-feeding. But as we grow older, most adults stop producing this enzyme because again, we’ve been weaned from breastmilk. But white people are from more northern climates where there’s less sunlight, that’s why they’re so pale. It’s also cold as hell up there, so every resource counted! Including… Animal milk.

Yep! In order to survive, Northwestern Europeans had to drink animal milk. And over time, they built up a tolerance to the stuff. This is the part where I get fuzzy about what happened next but here’s my hypothesis: Europeans began consuming animal products at all ages, including childhood when their body is still producing lactase. Now normally the body expects to be weaned off of milk products by the age of around four but… If a kid is still eating milk…

Yep!! White people over the generations began to build up a tolerance to milk! And once they stopped feeling sick to their stomach every time they drank milk… They branched out into cheese. And food is a huge part of culture so that’s why cheese is so predominant in places like America, England, and France lmfao.

TLDR: Most poc come from places in the world where there was no need to drink animal milk. As a result, their body naturally stopped producing lactase once they hit adulthood, which is why many poc are lactose intolerant! White people evolved differently; milk became a standard of their diet, so out of necessity they evolved in order to keep producing lactase. Because white people are lactose tolerant they eat a lot of cheese, thus starting the ‘white people love cheese’ culture.

(Some parts of this may be incorrect, I’m doing all of this off the top of my head from memory, so feel free to google!! <3)

Edit: Ohhhh I also forgot about mutations!! Some people (white and poc) can spontaneously develop the ability to keep producing lactase past childhood. So I suppose a survival of the fittest situation could have played out… Like, many early Europeans could have tried drinking milk but it made them sick so they lost that food source and died. But then a few lucky people continued to produce lactase, drank the milk, survived, and passed down the LCT gene to their kids!

imagine Mercy working another 24-shift and refusing to go to bed, so Ana finally taps her with a sleep dart, Zenyatta puts a harmony orb around her, and when Mercy finally falls asleep, Lucio tucks some sound-cancelling headphones in her ears and Symmetra puts a hard light lock on the door so she can’t be interrupted

SHREK: Once upon a time there was a lovely princess. But she had an enchantment upon her of a fearful sort which could only be broken by love's first kiss. She was locked away in a castle guarded by a terrible fire-breathing dragon. Many brave knights had attempted to free her from this dreadful prison but non prevailed. She waited in the dragon's keep in the highest room of the tallest tower for her true love and true love's first kiss. (laughs) Like that's ever gonna happen.
