Veganism =/= Whiteness

If you're like me, you're probably sick and tired of PoC erasure when it comes to veganism and vegetarianism, and you've probably been told before that the ARM is a White thing. If not that, then you are sick of the racism within the ARM that belittles human tragedies (slavery, holocaust) and use these tragedies to stand on whilst speaking about animal suffering. We've had had it, no more veg*nism is a white thing, and no more appropriating PoC in the ARM. We are here, we exist, and we don't take your racist shit.

Ugh I am so tired of everyone on tumblr thinking it is impossible to care about humans and animals at the same time. I know a lot of famous blogs who are like "oh wow white people care about these ridiculous animals but not people, why do you care about a damn pig but not people" but it's like we do? How is it impossible to post about going vegan and racism? I mean let's ignore how animal-ag causes global warming which mostly affects poor POC huh

white people (especially vegans) are so racist and entitled like go eat at your white-owned vegan mexican and chinese restaurants and leave everyone else alone you lipless heathens

lmao “especially vegans”
how does someone’s diet/lifestyle have anything to do with whether they’re racist or not, yikes

And come the fuck on, plenty of people of color being vegan and plenty of us go to poc owned vegan restaurants!

Don’t try and erase us.

POC Vegans exist.

Hey, I just saw a post that you reblogged including "cruelty free products". I'd like to inform you that the brand L'occitane (pictured there with a soap bar) isn't cruelty free and hasn't been for many years, O.P.I isn't, Bobbi Brown, Aveda, Smashbox and M.A.C aren't either. I don't know much about the others, but there are a few companies that have stayed true to themselves. Loads of info and lists on the internet if you need any. Cutecosmetics is a great website, all the products are CF.

Thank you dahhhhling <3

veganshithead:

it’s funny, people always accuse some vague hyperbole of a militant vegan of comparing meat eating to genocide, but it’s always the white fuckhead carnists who wanna start that shit.

carnism-is:

Saying “Boycott this company!” and “Protest that company!”

Then arguing that vegan’s efforts are worthless despite evidence on the contrary.

I think vegetarianism and veganism is a wonderful thing, and i want to at least become a vegetarian once i move out of my house

but i will never be one of those people to shove it in others’ faces just because they’re not the same way, just as i’ve never been (nor will…

I bet you’d force every carnivorous animal that had ever walked the planet into a vegan diet knowing that it would surely kill them. The only statement made from Sara’s post was that she wouldn’t force her views onto people like you. You’re really similar to Spain in the 1600’s, I bet you’d crucify meat eaters if it were legal.

Telling people the truth about their dead animal “food” is the same as genocide you guys.

Wow look at this racist everybody.

Explain the racism. It was a comparison of ideas because you harbor the same ideals as imperialistic Spain. There wasn’t an ounce of racism in my post. You’re pathetic. Believe me, I want to be vegan, but I don’t want to be vegan because eating animals is killing them. That’s stupid. Absolutely absurd. From the evolution of human kid, humans have eaten meat and vegetation. But apparently it’s morally wrong to eat animals now. Alright I’ll remember that. I’ll make a list really quick.

1. I’m apparently racist for making a comparison of ideals.
2. I’m genocidal because I eat meat.
3. I’m inherently a waste of your “intelligence” because I don’t share the same ideals.

You’re equally as stupid men’s rights activists on Reddit.

You, a white male, compared me, a person of color hurting a carnist’s feelings to the genocide of many nations in the Americas. That is racist.

That’s all you need to know.

Stop idolizing shitty ass white vegan men who are racist and misogynist and classist and ableist and just terrible human beings

princess-passion-flower:

I will NEVER judge people who eat meat if they can not afford the privilege not to. I know of people who went back to eating meat because their ED started back up, and some went back when it interfered with medications. I know there are a lot of people in food deserts or of people who are too oppressed to access proper foods. Like, there are rare health disorders and such. I am aware of people who can not go vegan for mental and physical health reasons. I support these people, I do not judge these people, these people will never be a target of my rants.

But able/privilege meat eaters, I will not afford the same. Stop tokenizing people who are not privileged like you just so you can excuse yourself of responsibility. That is all.

Yeah, I'm half Caucasian and half native and I'm still vegan like I don't even understand why people bring that stuff up??

Because it’s any easy out.

I’m just “appreciating the animal like a native does!”

Nooooo! You don’t get to bring in native people as magical elements to excuse your personal behavior.

But native use the “whole animal”!!

How many natives have you met???? I mean yes, Natives use the whole animal but many of us live in cities just like you (shocking right???) and just buy what we need like everyone else?

We aren’t in some perpetual cycle of drum circles, dancing dancing and animal sacrifice okay?!

Why do you think Gary Francione is awful?
vegsofcolor vegsofcolor Said:

chronicallyvegan:

Gary Francione is super ableist, classist, sexist, and racist. Beyond not seeing the connections between speciesism and the above systems of oppression, he doesn’t accept that there could be any reasons for why it may be very difficult/impossible for someone to be completely vegan (ex: living in a food desert which disproportionately affects PoC, especially Native persons). Additionally, his whole concept of “moral schizophrenia” is extremely ableist, discriminatory, and belittling. When called out on such issues, he refuses to take any accountability, let alone apologize.
