  1. The BLK water boasting its GMO-free status isn’t all that strange.

    Well no stranger then the fact that fulvic acid is closely related to humic acid (which gardeners may recognize as being in humus, the good black dirt that you get from composting). That’s right, despite what that article asserts BLK water contains traces of dirt which can be derived from plant material (hence the No-GMO claim).

    All the rest of those claims are mumbo-jumbo, “powerful electrolytes” (Gatorade and Pedialyte are cheaper), high pH (reportedly 9.0) to neutralize excess acidity (where? In your stomach?), and gluten-free (naturally).

    Human people are fucking weird.

  2. Marion Nestle mentioned organic water in Dubai before.

    Regarding one Atticus Finch, Esq., there’s a long history of allies being themselves subtle bigots.

    There are also the bigots who we can exploit in some way because of their bigotry. If you used Western Sky payday lending or went to an Indian casino because you thought you could screw over the Indians, congratulations! This is you.

    Far worse, to me at least, are the clueless allies. Think of the Major Crimes Act. It was actually drafted by white liberals who thought they were doing some good!

    And also the allies with an agenda. For instance, the people who make protests about police brutality into anything but police brutality. These guys might also have brilliant radical ideas like “Abolish the police.”, which I’m sure is totally workable. White privilege is saying far more radical things than black and brown leaders, but being given a mic when those same leaders are at best marginalized and at worst assassinated.
