  • Just to give it a bump, there's an interesting little article here on the Black Vegan scene over in the States....

    I've known quite a number of black, and other minority ethnic vegans -- it's not uncommon, but there's also a perception I've heard from black people that veganism is a 'white persons thing'.

    There's also a suggestion of a phenomenon called 'white veganism' that accuses activists of cultural insensitivities etc. and that, by ignoring the struggles of 'POC' (I hate that acronym) while promoting animal rights, it's even borderline racist -- I don't buy that shit at all, as it largely seems to stem from middle class woke hipster types, who seem to use any excuse they can to cause division amongst people who would normally be on the same side. :/
