The guys from Little Brother were vegetarians but are no PETA supporters. 2 years ago Little Brother did an interview with PETA as vegetarians. At the time they did not know a lot about PETA but since have objected to PETA’s use of the interview. Little Brother became hostile to PETA after PETA’s campaign last year comparing animal cruelty to slavery. Group Member Phonte wrote the following on MySpace:
Plus, my problems with PETA run waaaaay deeper than that. To me, they come across as rich white folk who are privileged enough to fight a ‘struggle’ that the average everyday working person could really give a fuck about. Meat is murder? Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit! Meat ain’t murder, its what’s for dinner! Plus, any organization that attempts to compare animal abuse to HUMAN SLAVERY can eat a dick…..for real, for real….
I guess I’ve never been much of an animal sympathizer……truth be told, I don’t even like pets…..never have really…..I never even dated girls who had pets…..I thought them hoes was nasty for living with a fo’ legged creature…..Its not that I want to just pointlessly slaughter animals or anything….its just that when I see a chicken, I don’t think ‘oh, poor little helpless creature of God.’ I’m thinkin’ ‘Fo’ piece waing dinner, niggas!”
“Meat ain’t murder, it’s whats for dinner!” That’s pretty funny. Phonte goes on in his blog about how stores shouldn’t sell fancy collars and black people shouldn’t be allowed to own pets.
