Sistah Vegan was reviewed on “Civil Eats” the other day. I enjoyed the review and I think Andrea understands the nature of my work.
However, in terms of comments….I think it’s funny that commenters will critique a book before reading it. I guess this human being below (comment 2) is projecting anger and hate issues on a book they have yet to read. They also seem to not understand that I look at veganism from a cultural perspective, looking at how race, racism, racialization experiences influence how one understands or transitions into veganism. Their comment doesn’t reflect that they read this. Anyway, I often like to share how my book and research are [mis]interpreted by people who don’t even bother reading the book. Here is the link to Civil Eats: http://civileats.com/2010/05/10/sistah-vegan-a-rethinking-of-race-food/ which is called “Sistah Vegan: A rethinking of race and food”. Below are 2 comments from that blog thus far. The first one is positive, the 2nd one is unproductive, but I’ve chosen not to engage with this person by not responding. I feel like it would make more sense for them to eventually read the book and spend a fair amount of time on my blog to see what I’m talking about.
