People often think that there aren't many Black/Afrikan vegetarians or vegans. There is the presumption that it is a white thing. This just isn't so.

According to a 2012 study done by the Vegetarian Resource Group, 3% of whites and 6% of Blacks in the US report they are vegetarian or vegan. So you see we are actually MORE likely to be vegetarian or vegan. There are more than 2.5 million Black/Afrikan vegetarians in the US and many more around the world.

I created Food For The Soul: The Online Home For Black Vegetarians at http://foodforthesoul.opare... to help connect us together, Black/Afrikan vegetarians, vegans, and those who want to learn more. To give us a place to talk to each other and support and learn from each other. We don't have to feel alone or isolated.

I am committed to building a nation of Black/Afrikan vegetarians who are saying NO to big business that is knowingly leading us down the path to the destruction of our communities, to disease, to disability, to obesity, to oppression, to deception and to early death.

I invite all people of Afrikan descent to join the food revolution. We're building a nation. Show less
