Just as nonvegans do not acknowledge that nonhumans are oppressed

Just as nonvegans do not acknowledge that nonhumans are oppressed, people who are not Black do not acknowledge that Black people are oppressed. In both cases, it is about a group that is systemically oppressed, and in both cases, it is about taking the side of the oppressed and speaking up about the injustices that are done to them. If you cannot acknowledge the glaring systemic and multi-generational injustices that are done to Black people in the U.S., you are in a weak position to criticize nonvegans who cannot acknowledge the glaring systemic and multi-generational injustices that are done to nonhumans.
