The "pureblood" marketing opportunity

A trend on TikTok is also a marketing opportunity, so now you can buy T-shirts with the new slogan that "I will no longer be referred to as unvaccinated. I am now going by the name 'pureblood.'" It's all too easy to comment on how revealing this is: the "purebloods" in the Harry Potter series were the bad guys, the "wizard supremacists", as it were, who hated all wizards with one or two "muggle" parents. And of course the "one drop" rule in American history made everyone with any "colored" ancestry into a "colored" person. But perhaps the whole "pureblood" thing is just trolling to trigger all the vaccinated libtard snowflakes. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 16 September 2021)
