Vegan Thug Kitchen Changes Its Racist Name
Updated: May 4, 2021
I was in Barnes & Noble some years ago and saw the book, "Thug Kitchen." It was full of fun-sounding vegan recipes. I bought it because it was, well, irreverent. And I thought I was also supporting a Black man.
In June 2020, Thug Kitchen changed its name to Bad Manners. It only took the murder of George Floyd (and countless others) to do it.
In my latest video, I talk about why this name is racist, along with a total of 9 brands that you probably thought were Black-owned but aren't.
