Anti-Dairy, Meat, Egg, And Poultry Speaker Teaches College Kids About White Privilege

LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Rob Shimshock

Lawrence University will host a speaker who wants to abolish the meat, dairy, veal, poultry, egg, fur, and leather industries to discuss “white fragility,” food justice and intersectionality.

Dr. Amie Breeze Harper, the vice presidential candidate for the Humane Party for the 2016 election, will give a talk called “Anti-Racism, ‘White Fragility,’ and the ‘Third Reconstruction’: A Black Feminist Praxis of Survival, Resistance, and Hope” at Lawrence University in Wisconsin on Feb. 20.

“White Fragility often means there is dismissal or denial of how mostly white people collude with systemic racism, benefit from white privilege, and how ‘race matters,’” reads the event description. “From dismissing the validity of systemic racism, to making it about [white] ‘hurt’ feelings, to wanting to be ‘Post-racial,’ white fragility is a deeply troubling barrier in creating anti-racism activism and ally-building.”

The event stresses that people must practice intersectionality of different minority groups not only with anti-racism in mind, but by also “not reproducing other ‘isms’ (i.e., heterosexism, cis-sexism, ableism).”

Here’s the Humane Party’s platform:

Harper, who is black, edits the Sistah Vegan anthology, the first volume of which “explores food politics, identity, sexuality, health, womanism, feminism, decolonization, anti-racism, eco-sustainability, and animal rights through the lens of the black female vegan experience in the USA.”

“Think black feminism, meets whole foods veganism, meets eco-sustainable philosophy meets anti-racist philosophy meets decolonial theory meets health and nutrition activism,” according to the anthology’s description.

    Why not ply your trade and direct your energies to self denial and self existence, thereby releasing your footprint on this earth and allowing the vegetation to replenish the land!

    Speaking of mouthfuls. I wish I could have a mouthful of some fried strips of dead pig.
    But it’s cold so I better put on my baby seal skin coat and fox stole.

    Dr Harper is an amazing speaker and author, the slant of your article doesn’t give her nearly enough credit.
