Finally!

Somebody sets the record straight on veganism, imperialism, and revolution...

RANT ABOUT VEGANISM

 Dear White Vegans (I don’t mean all vegans who are white but specifically vegans who’s veganism is racialised as white, you probably don’t know that you are like that. Basically the PETA type vegans), kindly f@#k off! You didn’t invent veganism and you’re not better than PoCs both in the west and the global south who do not always have the access to veganism. By access I don’t mean just access to fruit & veg, I also mean time & space & money to be able to be vegan. So stop with your racialised attacks on black & brown folk. You are not better than anyone. If anything your veganism gives you a sense of moral superiority that leads you to not question & be unaware of your privileges that allow you to be vegan. So I repeat, kindly f@#k the f@#k right off! Dear non-vegan PoCs, stop f@#king buying the White Vegan idea that veganism is a white thing invented in the west. Stop erasing the multi-millennial history of veganism in the global south. Black and brown folk have been vegan for millennia. Also, stop associating veganism with liberalism. Veganism has a long revolutionary anti-colonial anti-capitalist history. Caring about the fate of animals and their treatment doesn’t negate or supersede the concern for the treatment of humans. In fact, they are inseparable in most revolutionary vegan practices. Stop buying the either/or dialectical atrophied discourse that tells you you either care about humans or animals. 
 That is all!

This is what White Vegans look like...
