No Junk January – Why Give Up Junk Food?

| 11/15/2014 | Reply

Why do I love junk food so much? I find all kinds of reasons to justify eating it with the top one being it’s easier and cheaper. Just so you know, I am not a vegan or vegetarian, I eat meat. I want to know how you say its cheaper to cook because I can eat off the dollar cravings menu at Taco Bell and be full for $4-5.00 (plus tax and whatever it costs for a soda)… so say $6.50 and I’m done. No dishes to wash either! Three of my friends want me to do the junk food challenge with them in January. But first I want to know why should stop eating fast food and cook like you suggest, when I can just do what I’ve been doing? It works for me.

The two owners of the popular vegan blog Thug Kitchen have been revealed to be two white yuppie perpetrators from the Valley of Southern California. Now people are asking what was their true intention, hiding behind the word “thug” a la Tupac Shakur, knowing they would jump out of their skin at the first sign of a true thug getting at them. Why are non-blacks always trying to appropriate the part of blackness they think will make them money, while they conveniently leave the racism and police brutality behind?
