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.

I wasn't.

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.
