This week we talk about the explosion of racist bullshit over VegNews wishing Colin Kaepernick a happy birthday. Will White Veganism ever not be a thing?
In This Episode
Dishearteningly, but not surprisingly, not much has changed since our Dear White Vegans: Stop It episode two years ago. VegNews wished Colin Kaepernick a happy birthday on their Facebook page last week and the thread exploded into White Veganism, a hot mess of racist comments and claims that veganism is “not political.” So, we’re talkembout it.
Also, Nichole loses her shit over “less-a-tarians” during the news section.
What did the coach say to the broken vending machine?
