FOES OF NYC SODA SIZE LIMIT DOUBT RACIAL FAIRNESS
Opponents of the city’s limit on the size of sugary drinks are raising questions of racial fairness alongside other complaints as the novel restriction faces a court test.
The NAACP’s New York state branch and the Hispanic Federation have joined beverage makers and sellers in trying to stop the rule from taking effect March 12. With a hearing set Wednesday, critics are attacking what they call an inconsistent and undemocratic regulation, while city officials and health experts defend it as a pioneering and proper move to fight obesity.
Have you noticed lately that anytime some complaint rises there are those who immediately want to make it a racial issue? In this case the stupid imposition of size of drinks is now being played as a deliberate attack on race.
In another instance I was reading about job cuts to the postal service and the article I had read was that it was an attack on blacks.
