Watching #whatthehealth the documentary touched on how in colonised/western nations; environmental racism occurs in hand with the industrialised farming of animals. It explained briefly how the socially marginalised/racial minority communities live with the exposure of pollutants from farming and the denial of access to sources of ecological benefits as in clean air, water, and natural resources.
There is a lot of white noise on the internet from vegans who refuse to listen to PoC and continue to silence those discussions that absolutely link animal agriculture and civil issues, I was so pleased to see a segment giving a perfect example of this continuing problem.
It's a hard concept to grasp for many especially due to marginalisation being something only some of us have to experience but absolutely; by default our veganism is undeniably resisting neo colonialism that is the practice of environmental injustice within a racialized context. #blacklivesmatter#vegan#intersectionality
