i mean, honestly
who writes a post basically saying “but wont we think of the white vegans feelings” when we levy critiques of veganism as a mainstream movement?
who links to a post pushing for THE ENTIRE CONTINENT OF AFRICA to become vegan as a means of “saving the environment/animal/oh wait there are people there too”?
because mainstream veganism totally doesn’t already hold the perception that indigenous cooking/food cultures of global POCs are “backwards” and “barbaric”, and its the job of the locally grown organic fair trade whole foods/co-op shoppers to “bring those people into the 21st century and fundamentally the light”
like did i miss the audition call for the shuck and jive tap dancing fest?
maybe there is an epic hole in my soul
and i just can’t feel the breeze blowing through it anymore
but i just don’t give a fuck about white vegan fee fees when being called out on their shit
their sensibilities, ideas, “innovations”
their concern for porky the pig or bugs bunny sitting in corporate capitalist captivity
or their Christian-missionary style captain save a ho/brown person/poor person/disabled person/fat person existence
i just want a brown veganism movement that understands what it really means to create OPTIONS and CHOICES where there was previously little to none
and respect that creating OPTIONS and CHOICES doesn’t automatically mean we have to or are going to make the same ones in order to change our royally fucked up food system
