This black vegetarian is so tired of PETA ads
The 2020 Super Bowl ad from PETA that deserved a block from Fox Sports and the NFL
I’m a tree-hugging, Earth Hour honoring, recycle bin condo association watching, 15-year vegetarian. Minus California maki rolls and the occasional Filet o’ Fish (my only two weaknesses), I haven’t eaten anything that had parents since 2005. But still, animal rights organizations like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) make it so hard to defend them.
As much as I want to put on my cape and step to the front of the line, sticking up for all the good things they do (like help me find cruelty-free perfume), they love to remind me they don’t have enough African-American people on their staff. I used to know one black PETA employee, but she was terminated for not showing up to a meeting. I don’t know how important the meeting was, but I damn sure think black folks at PETA should never get vacation days when this company comes up with a new marketing idea.
Here’s why I believe that black people should be required to work during all of PETA’s marketing meetings. If they’re not there, then nonsense like this reaches the public eye.
