'White supremac' is the product sold by those in the race business


The article, titled "The White Supremacist Origins of Exercise, and 6 Other Surprising Facts About the History of U.S. Physical Fitness," provides an uncited attempt to describe sinister origins behind everything from President Kennedy's fitness campaign to simple running.

Author Natalia Mehlman Petrzela wrote "Fit Nation," a book that states in its synopsis that "fitness is a social justice issue."

Petrzela reminds readers that until 1920, being fat was attractive. "What would be considered today fat or bigger, was actually desirable and actually signified affluence—which is like the polar opposite of today," she explained.
