Episode 4: Who Real, Who Fake – How to Donate Effectively, Eliminate the Third Party, Find Books for Vegans of Color and Reject Celebrity Activism

No time to depend upon others to make the change that we want to see or lead the impact that we feel should be made. Dependence on capitalist structures to regulate when and how much we give is unreliable.

Some people/orgs appreciate monetary donations as a way to be compensated for a skill without further distancing community from the resource, while others may not need monetary donations as much as community support in order to outsource organizing tasks, to spread the word and to volunteer. It is always nice to ask or pay attention to the kind of donation that is most requested.

Episode 3: We’re Making History, Which Side Are You On?

Convenience isn’t a reason to commit to something.

We are at a time where we need to challenge and question societal norms beyond what the mainstream moral compass. Until we live in a vegan world, it is necessary to make sacrifices.

The real question is posed to us now: if we were alive during times of antebellum slavery would we support it, if given the choice?

Discussion: We’re Making History, Which Side Are You On?

I don’t want you to go vegan because you realize it “isn’t that challenging” I want you to be ready to embrace the challenge so that you can hold others accountable for doing the same. Convenience isn’t a reason to commit to something.

We are at a time where we need to challenge and question societal norms beyond what the mainstream moral compass. Until we live in a vegan world, it is necessary to make sacrifices.

The real question is posed to us now: if we were alive during times of antebellum slavery would we support it, if given the choice? 

Are we willing to embrace the challenge of filling in the gray area?

Where do your values come from? We’ve spoken much about our oppression but we need to evaluate this desire to speak and alleviate our oppression. Is it because we see ourselves of agents of change or simply because we wanted to fit within the definition of whiteness?

When we were presented with a white supremacist viewpoint of the world– through school systems, measurements of success, and status quo- we had been blinded.

In this episode, I talk about how anti-blackness would continue to exist within all of us if we continued to utilize the white gaze. 

It is important to challenge the white gaze so that you create a gap between the white gaze and your outlook on life as an individual, but also begin the internal journey back to Black/Brown collective consciousness, ancestral wisdom and tradition.

Discussion: That’s the Motto, YGVO

  1. If you want to eat as a vegan does for your own health reasons, then thats wonderful, but do vegan activists a favor by just not using the word “vegan” on your platform and in your interactions.
  2. If you are only plant-based for health, I’d suggest referring to your platform as plant-based or even just healthy. It is true that some vegan diets are optimal for health and fitness, but I feel as though that should all stay over there. Reasons to Go Vegan videos are becoming watered down by the diet culture and fat-phobic rhetoric to the point where I actually don’t blame people making “going vegan” a New Year Resolution. It is up to us to discern our platforms to provide more authentic vegan resources.
  3. It is actually helpful to the narrative that a plant-based lifestyle is healthy without portraying veganism as a completely diet-related effort that sometimes considers compassion. Be transparent about the fact that your plant-based lifestyle 
  4. If you want to use the word vegan, bring your values to your platform. If you’re not in the place to bring the entirety of veganism to your platform, remove veganism from your brand.
  5. Veganuary is a reflection of the fact that mainstream white vegans jump at every small interest in veganism, then throw people away when they don’t end up pursuing the lifestyle holistically or long-term. They do so without realizing the gaps in their activism that lead people to believe this is a single issue campaign and a knee-jerk decision.

Forward Item

Find your “Why” allow it to blossom.

Allow your why to  take up space in different areas.

Seek the reasoning that resonates for you.

Clarify why it resonates, and carry this resonance throughout your interaction with vegan content.

Expose yourself to several arguments.

Be encouraged to reject vegan narratives, activists or platforms that disregard your lived experiences, promote white supremacy, contradict your values, or commit violence to one or more of your identities.

Also, be encouraged to just reject certain arguments within the vegan movement without rejecting veganism as a whole.

What Would Non-Human Animals Do If We Didn’t Eat Them?

“What would cows do if we didn’t eat them?”

Well. 🙂 You’re looking at it!

Productivity is a harmful element that is a huge determinant of one’s worth or value in a capitalist society.

You know, this question was often (and is often) asked when referring to enslaved (+ incarcerated) people.

If they didn’t work for us, they’d be lost! They would have *no contribution* to our [capitalist] society. They have no purpose; we give them purpose. In a way… they’re lucky to have us! ••

Productivity = value.

It’s the reason why we “can’t” stay in bed past 12.

It is why a functioning, enslaved Black body was more useful than a dead one—

a dead one can’t work for you.

Duh!

An emaciated, mutilated, tortured body could work so long as they make use of that last thread they are hanging by. And we don’t even recognize those experiences because doing so would recognize the life that the body holds and the fact that it is a conscious being…But the way enslavement + industrialization works is to make bodies into machines.

To exhaust these bodies to the brink of death, but making sure to ger every drop of their blood, sweat, milk (yep, this applies to BW too) before they drop….

What would they do?

They would be.

They would just be.

What I want everyone to realize, here, is that when we ask this we are actually asking “what would we do with them.”

And the answer is nothing.

White supremacy is the mindset and tactic through which all forms of exploitation thrive. It programs an entitlement to one’s body and one’s life.

White supremacy does not have to govern your values…

let’s be intentional and recreate value/worth on our own terms.

To me, life = value.

I see equal value in all life and I actually mean that.

It has been a journey, but divesting from white supremacist notions that govern my mind and body really helped me realize—

who am I, but a white supremacist, to determine the life purpose of another being?

So today- consider this…

What would do if capitalism didn’t eat you?

How would you spend your day?

Discussion: How to Support Black/Brown Vegans

 1. Attend events held for education on these topics, events where you can support by connecting with people or applying/sharing the resources they provide

2. Hold yourself accountable for learning what you can do, youre on the right track by reading this essay instead of asking Black/Brown vegans what you can do to help. What is important for you to do is take initiative rather than presenting another task to activists who have spent a great amount of effort or energy on this topic. Ask where you can learn more — I’m sure they’d be more than happy to send you a link, refer you to previous work they’ve done or provide books/resources for you to gain more information on existing black/brown vegan activism and narratives. You support us a lot by taking time to engage with work we have already done.

3. Continuously share – be consistent.  Allow whoever you are trying to convince to engage with the direct source, act as a bridge rather than a tour guide. Support us by speaking up where necessary, but also allowing us to do the talking for the most part. Actively center the voices of Black/Brown people while assuming the position of a supporter, reinforcer, learner and active participant.

4. Identify your platform and place Black/Brown vegan voices at the center of it when sharing resources or referring people to anything vegan – not just liberation/justice related content. Strive to first share Black and Brown people because more often than not white vegans are already well known even by people who are not vegan.

5. Donate intentionally; donate with time, effort and resources just as much as monetary funds, if not more. As we divest from capitalist frameworks, we could value the redistribution wealth, but also resources and agency to live in accordance with one’s values. Ask to volunteer, offer resources such as databases, administrative skills or event spaces, and use platform to center this voice

6. Apply knowledge just as much as you absorb it, refer your friends to our talks and literature before having a discussion. Don’t put it upon yourself to represent black or brown vegans and then feel guilty for not succeeding. Support us by giving our voice the platform that you have that even makes you want to speak on it in the first place. Normalize Black and Brown vegans in the discussion

Black Bean Patties – Vegan & Gluten Free

#Yes

I’ve tried a lot of recipes for black bean burgers, but this one definitely slaps the hardest. Plus, it’s nut, soy and gluten free so I can share it with a good handful of my allergen sensitive friends/family.

Ayyyeee!


Ingredients:

1 can black beans

1/2 cup brown rice flour*

1/2 cup nutritional yeast*

2 flax egg*

1 Tsp soy sauce

2 Tbsp sunflower oil

Seasonings: cumin, garlic powder, salt, adobo, ground mustard, black pepper

*Read more about why I use this (or what it is)!

Recipe:

1. Drain black beans, then put into a bowl. (Make sure not to mash them! This is a key to the consistency. Keep them whole; use a fork to mix.)

2. Mix in all dry ingredients and soy sauce. Add more flour and nooch, if needed.

3. Add flax egg

4. Fry patties in sunflower oil for at least 5 minutes on each side. Cook until brown.

*Nooch – nutritional yeast is responsibly for the cheesy flavor in most vegan foods! It is an excellent source of B12. B12 is one of those things that nobody knows about until you go vegan and then you hear about it every day. You probably would like some salient facts on this, so here ya go. 

*Brown Rice Flour – any flour can be used for the recipe, I just use this kind because I’m staying away from bleached flour and this one is gluten-free. Although I’m still eating whole grains, I decided to cut back on gluten where I can. Mostly because I enjoy making gluten-free recipes to share with my friends that have a gluten sensitivity. Hear more for yourself on gluten, what it is, and how it impacts the body.

*Flax Egg – One of my favorite egg replacers. In order to make it, just mix 1 Tbsp of Ground Flax and 2 1/2 Tbsp of Cold Water. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before mixing it in.


Omega-3 Tea

So, I’ve decided that all my recipes will be offered with tea. This week’s tea is for those who eat fish for Omega-3s!

Sneaking in ground flax where you can is how I gain a sufficient amount of Omega-3s without ingesting the harmful pollutants, pesticides and heavy metals through fish consumption.

In fact, some research has been done to propose that even levels of these chemicals that are considered to be “safe for consumption,” have the ability to work against than the nutrient value; thus, negating potential benefits. It’s important to note, of course, that the presence of these chemicals is a result of human interference with marine life habitats.

Okay, now for the tea. I see a lot of people referring to Mediterranean diets which include fish sources. It’s worth considering that the quality of oceans we are fishing from now, and the industrial method of fishing that we rely upon now are far out of alignment with “traditional” Mediterranean diets and practices.

That is a completely separate blog post though… that is coming to you soon!

Exclusive Anti-Exclusion Club: Why It’s Dangerous to Exclude White People from Black/Brown Vegan Activist Spaces

Good morning, beautiful Brown people!

I’ve got a loaded question for us today.

Why would we exclude people in the conversation of exclusion?

Why are we uncomfortable with white people entering discussions that center us? Placing a boundary around those who enter the space with carelessness, hurtfulness and bigotry is valid (across all bases – ableism, transphobia, classism, racism alike.) I never think it’s appropriate for white people to center themselves in our space…

But consciously excluding those who seek the space with intention to support and listen; who want to learn or apply resources on how to contribute to Black/Brown vegan activism is actually harmful to our cause.

I do see the importance of empowerment within an identity, which is why I love hosting events such as FemPowerHour and the Sunday Brunch (more details soon) that are spaces specifically carved for Black/Brown femme folk to recharge, reconnect and relax.

But it consistently frustrates us to be speaking in an echo chamber on topics of liberation, land rights, and industrial systems amongst people with the same level of access to making systemic change…So why do we continue to do it?

We always say support Black/Brown vegan activism..How can they support if they are not apart of the discussion? (listeners are just as much apart of the conversation). I think it’s capitalist in nature to believe if white people gave us all their money that we would thrive or even achieve anything in terms of growth or liberation.

(Shoot, honestly, what would be lit is if white people and “rich” people started giving back land. Now, that would be lit. Forget the money at that point. Let me stay on topic here tho.)

Anyway, as we divest from capitalism, we need to think about what money represents within capitalist societies and that is: access. We want to decenter money as the motivation for all things, as this is something that capitalist notions have conditioned us to believe. I’ve come to realize that more than anything it represents value, access and worth.

I think as we are growing to associate value with a state of being- someone’s voice is simply valuable for being a person– then it would be wrong to exclude someone and say they are not valuable to the conversation based on an element of their personhood. In which case, are we really doing anything different or are we seeking the power to normalize ill-treatment of white people?

I invite us to think beyond that framework of exclusion. We may hate to admit it, but complete and collective liberation cannot exist in the midst of intentional white suffering… or else it may be just be a spin on white supremacy.

If we are excluding them because we are afraid of or uncomfortable with expressing our true feelings about white supremacy and capitalism in front of white people, then we need to actively challenge the white supremacist and capitalist frameworks that erase and silence us by speaking about oppression unapologetically. I’d also ask us to consider whether or not that sentiment contradicts the demand we have of white people to embrace discomfort as we dissect oppression in society.

Should they self-educate to some degree before entering the space? Absolutely. Should they enter the space from a place of humility and receptivity? Absolutely.

And, just as with the rest of us, I feel as though they should be present and engaged.

I mentioned one day that a lot of my activism includes frameworks, ideologies, tools, and outlooks that are informed & inspired by my Black feminist activism— which far predated my vegan activism. So, I admit that I have a praxis for veganism that is informed by Black feminist liberation theories. (I’m gonna write a spinoff article how assuming that we all have the same level of knowledge in terms of liberation theory, vegan practice or decolonization is seriously flawed, capitalist and also exclusionary.)

I also recognize that becoming vegan does not guarantee that you’ll become well-versed on Black feminist liberation theory…Just as becoming Black feminist does not assure exposure to nonhuman animal liberation theory… (most don’t even see how the two are related which is ok)

but in a way, that should be the case.

Which is why I ask for your support of my work.

I think, if anything, let’s welcome them into a space that centers Black and Brown vegan voices. If we want veganism to be identified as a liberation movement, then I think it’s best that we welcome everyone who come to the space to reinforce our work. This way, we actively give strength to our narratives and our liberation theories.

For example, the large platform big name white vegans who quit their day jobs in pursuit of animal rights should be offering their speaking spots at panels and conferences, news articles, instagram features, and the like, to the Black/Brown vegans advocating for complete and collective liberation. They can only do this, though, if they know about us. And truly know about us… not just the face we put on for donors.

Let them see the real.

For us, activism is a part of our fabric— meaning many of us still work, go to school, or otherwise sustain ourselves under the current capitalist system while also dedicating our lives to changing the vegan narrative and being a resource for Black/Brown people throughout their vegan journey. Meaning we do this for our own liberation just as much as everyone else’s. Meaning there is no off switch for activism within a Black or Brown body.

It is a facet of our livelihood.

It is constant state of being.

We do this because we know what oppression is and how it functions. And because we know how it feels to be oppressed, our voices should be centered in speaking about oppression and liberation. We speak from a place of identification and experience.

And it is really important for them to be exposed to that.

Let us clearly acknowledge the difference between white saviorism and activism, for the sake of a stronger movement altogether. With one goal and several means of actualizing and achieving it.

Exclusion, tho… It’s just not the way we do things. Ancestrally speaking.

It’s time we rechannel our (rightfully acquired, but unproductively harbored) resentment into intentional and considerate action.

No white tears allowed, ever. And I mean that.

But white humility,

white support,

white accountability,

and informed utilization of white privilege

are intentional actions that are

always welcome in my activist spaces.


I truly hope that this resource is helpful to you in some way on your vegan journey as a Black/Brown person! In my journey as a young Black vegan, I have definitely learned that it is most helpful to our end goal support activists that are alleviating the issues that we recognize prevent access to veganism in Black/Brown communities instead of working over ourselves, we can get in where we fit in to help the movement expand and progress in the direction of complete and collective liberation.

How to Choose Vegan Activism Instead of Animal-Friendly White Supremacy

Hey, folx!

So, as you may have guessed, this ain’t it. I’ll just dive right in.

If this is a statement that you don’t see anything wrong with, I could understand that given the general classist undertone to the mainstream vegan narrative. What many people don’t realize, though, is that aside from being classist the mainstream vegan movement is also just non human-friendly white supremacy in a lot of ways.

Let me tell you how.

*referring to featured photo*

This feeling of hopelessness isn’t a unique experience.

Imagine trying to remain hopeful… for ya own life. Or that of your children.

I believe that your advocacy for needless violence would be more effective in addressing the system that normalized it in the first place, instead of providing a pedestal for  people witnessing “the darker side of humanity” for the very first time through veganism.

Vegans are not the first to come in contact with “innocent people” committing violence who “otherwise mean well.” So-oometimes, we witness people upholding a structure that repeatedly endangers our own lives.

Lastly, you know what is apart of the problem? White supremacy. Like this white supremacist ass post. Newsflash: this violence didn’t birth itself. It has a purpose and an origin. It stems from the same structure and system that this person was utilizing to hold marginalized people responsible for their own oppression. 

Hold capitalism and white supremacy accountable, dear! Or your are apart of the problem! Shit.

Oh, and one last thing regarding needless violence for one’s own pleasure. I hope you are holding yourself accountable to learn about violence against workers within the food system. Because, see, by perpetuating the narrative that non-vegan individuals are the problem…

You forget to consider the system that normalized this needless violence against society’s “undesireables’ for its own maintenance and success. You forget to the consider the fact that we all, vegans especially, need to analyze how to minimize the cruelty and exploitation caused by our food choices under capitalism.

If your veganism is not anti-capitalist in nature, you may want to make sure it is not white supremacy. For example, telling a story about how “seeing people continue to patronize the circus made my white kid cry because they were so appalled by how people could be so careless about life.” Frankly, love, there are brown kids seeking asylum at this very moment whose eyes water every day (from the tear gas, that is, because they’re too numb from living in a war zone to cry anymore) who can’t help but wonder who would ever do this to them.

(And the circus thing we can discuss more in detail later, but what I will say now is that everyone should have been boycotted circuses and zoos  upon learning that Black people were once the main attraction… but wait, that’s unrelated. Well. We’ll chat later about that.)

Long story short, if you’re not interested in talking about them, then why should your white child’s tears mean a thing to anybody. In fact, white saviorism is not important to veganism at all anymore. 

And it never should have been.

Your discomfort with needless violence is not a reason for anyone to engage in social change. What should be enough to engage in social change, though, is realizing that there is a system of needless violence that exploits the lives of anyone outside of their definition of humanity. That impacts Brown people, Black people, trans people, people with disability, and any combination of the above. As well as nonhuman animals…The land and Her natural resources. 

Or more simply stated, you forget the real problem. The structure of white supremacy and the system of capitalism.

Stop this. Also can we generally stop pretending as though this type of shamey content does anything for one’s vegan transition other than continuing a shamey ass trend of shaming. Educate yourself on the true problem of veganism. And make sure you aren’t a large shiny emblem of it! 

And that’s all, folx!
