The American Left: Eating Three Meals a Day is RACIST!

It seems just about everything is racist, or potentially racist, these days.
And if Hillary Clinton is elected President in 2016, I suppose we’ll be hearing non-stop about “sexism” in American life for the next four years.
But for right now, the Left is admitting that racism is so prevalent in American society, that absolutely no one is immune. Not even the Left.
We’re ALL racists now, at least if you enjoy the luxury of eating three meals a day.
From Mother Jones:
Dogmatic adherence to mealtimes is anti-science, racist, and might actually be making you sick. …
Historian Abigail Carroll, author of the book Three Squares: The Invention of the American Meal, explained to me that the the thrice-daily eating schedule goes back at least as far as the Middle Ages in Europe.

When European settlers got to America, they also imported their meal habits: a light meal—maybe cold mush and radishes—in the morning, a heavier, cooked one midday, and a third meal similar to the first one later in the day. They observed that the eating schedule of the native tribes was less rigid—the volume and timing of their eating varied with the seasons.
Sometimes, when food was scarce, they fasted. The Europeans took this as “evidence that natives were uncivilized,” Carroll explained to me in an email. “Civilized people ate properly and boundaried their eating, thus differentiating themselves from the animal kingdom, where grazing is the norm.” (So fascinated were Europeans with tribes’ eating patterns, notes Carroll, that they actually watched Native Americans eat “as a form of entertainment.”) …
The one thing that might actually improve your metabolism is periodic fasting—that’s right, the very same eating pattern that the early European settlers deemed uncivilized. …
