In this video I reflect on the past week of people who have written me, conveying to me, "I don't really get what you do," because they themselves "don't judge people by the color of their skin."

I try to compassionately explain that my research activism focuses on "structural racism" and "racialized effects". How do these affect vegan philosophies, whether you consider yourself racist or not? How does structural racism (and other "isms") affect vegan rhetoric, vegan outreach, vegan consumption, the vegan body ideal, etc?

Most importantly, I read from my dissertation intro and share with you the 6 core questions I am investigating in my work. And Lastly, I ask that if you can contribute to funding me to finishing my PhD for 2012 (because my fellowship was not renewed), you can send a monetary contribution to breezeharper (at) paypal (dot) com or offer other ideas if you are unable to contribute money.
