How can I be racist if I work with blacks
How can I be racist if one sold me slacks
I’m not racist I’m just like you. I’m best friends with a black or two.
i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
i love eastern culture and its women’s deference
the west lost its way with no room for clemency
If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?
i’m not a racist, i can’t be, you see
my great grandma’s grandma was part cherokee
plus one time i got called “cracker” to my face

I’m not racist, blacks just need to stop complaining
Living in the past and white people blaming
I work hard, no handouts for every little fraction
If white privilege isn’t fair, then how is affirmative action?

"Cops are just doing their job" always struck me as weird because it implies that somehow the fact that they are harassing, killing, and imprisoning people, enforcing institutional racism, and destroying communities is less morally reprehensible if they do it for money.

Almost nothing irks me more than seeing the myth that vegans need to take b12 supplements being perpetuating in 2014 by other vegans. Vegans, stop! Educate yourselves! Read this post!
- No foods naturally contain vitamin B12 - neither animal nor plant foods. Vitamin B12 is a microbe - a bacteria - it is produced by microorganisms (x)
- B12 synthesis is known to occur naturally in the human small intestine (in the ileum), which is the primary site of B12 absorption. As long as gut bacteria have cobalt and certain other nutrients, they produce vitamin B12 (x)
- Vitamin B12 is excreted in the bile and is effectively reabsorbed. People on diets low in B12 may be obtaining more B12 from reabsorption than from dietary sources (x)
- B12 can be destroyed by highly alkaline and highly acid conditions. The B12 in meat would be easily destroyed because the hydrochloric acid in our stomachs during the digestion of meat is highly acidic. (x)
- Plants grown in organically-managed soil make significantly higher levels of usable vitamin B12. It has also been reported that vitamin B12 is present in wild fruits and wild and home-grown plant foods. (x)
- Vitamin B12 deficiency is most often caused by an inability of the body to properly digest and absorb vitamin B12. The inability to absorb vitamin B12 can be caused by autoimmune and digestive disorders and conditions and some medications, (x)
- In many animals gastrointestinal fermentation supports the growth of these vitamin B12-synthesising microorganisms, and subsequently the vitamin is absorbed and incorporated into the animal tissues. (x)
As most vegans may already know, active b12 can be found in fermented foods, such as kimchi, miso, kefir, (vegan) yogurt and kombucha. What they may not know is that your digestive also ferments food (x). When your digestive system is at optimal health, you produce a lot of good bacteria, including b12, from fermenting foods in your gut.
One interesting aspect of this b12 debate is that many government-sponsored sites and studies suggest that vegans are at risk for b12 deficiency because they do not consume animal products, ignoring the fact that herbivorous animals (like humans) only produce b12 from the plant foods they eat. What they’re basically saying is that you have to eat another animal’s body to get b12, even though you have your own body that produces b12, in exactly the same way other animals do. It’s sort of the ‘eat protein from animals who get their protein from plants’ idea all over again.
Of course vegans can develop b12 deficiencies, but it is mostly likely due to poor diet, antibiotics usage, or other autoimmune disorders that prevent proper digestive health and absorption of nutrients. It is not because we do not eat animal products or enough supplemented foods.
Tl;dr: Eat nutritious whole foods, like leafy greens and don’t worry about b12
Let everyone note that the B12 supplement market is not marketed to vegans. It’s marketed to everyone because b12 deficiency is something that happens to everyone.
It doesn’t take a lot of effort to get the right amounts.
