There is a portion of Americans that have become way too sensitive and what I can only label as sissified.
They are the people who feel the need to find something to be offended about and show how oppressed they are. Now people are calling a beer racist that was created to denounce racism.
Before I get too far into this, let me say that I will acknowledge that people who are complaining about this beer do have a legitimate case, but for goodness sake, it's a beer and you know it's not meant to be racist.
The beer is described as “a collaborative effort together with our good friends – and world-class brewers – at Buxton Brewery (UK). Yellow Belly — a person who is without courage, fortitude, or nerve; a coward. To us, one of the most cowardly deeds is to act anonymously, hiding behind a group. A signifying trait of institutionalized racism. This beer is brewed to celebrate all things new, open-minded and progressive. A peanut butter biscuit stout with no biscuits, butter or nuts. Taste, enjoy, and don’t be prejudiced.”
As it turns out, the beer, which they are charging $40 per bottle for, just so happens to look like a KKK hood.
Whoever came up with this concept definitely needs a new job, and even more so the people who looked at it and thought, "You know what? This seems like a really good idea!"
This is the $40 bottle of beer that was promoted and presented to my black husband and his white friend tonight at World of Beer. After researching it at home, we discovered that it was ‘created to denounce racism… promote open-mindedness… packaged in paper deliberately to denounce organizations like the KKK,'" the post read.
"None of this was explained to Damion or his friend. This KKK bottle was brought over without warning about its appearance. At best, the server was ignorant, insensitive and tone-deaf. At worst…?”
The Yellow Belly beer is made by Swedish brewery Omnipollo and Buxton Brewery in the U.K., the Hartford Courant reports.
