    This is an awesome Idea.

    We have dice shaming, but it’s also great to acknowledge the ridiculous things they can allow you to do too.

    CLIPPING. RELEASES ONE-OFF TRACK “KNEES ON THE GROUND” - “A PARADIGMATIC WHITE-COP-KILLS-AN-UNARMED-BLACK-KID-AND-GETS-AWAY-WITH-IT TALE”

    This new track from clipping. comes along with a description from William Hutson of the group that trumps anything we could say:

    Our new track “Knees On The Ground” might benefit from an explanation. This is the most unguarded I ever intend to be when writing about Clipping.

    What had happened was this: our very brief UK/Europe trip got called-off the day before we were supposed to get on a plane to London. Since we didn’t have any other plans, we met up in the studio with an idea to crank out a new track. On our list of songs to finish was one particular piece aimed directly at the club (or, at least, our twisted idea of what clubs should play). But none of us were in the mood for it. Each of us had spent the previous several days following the news of protests in Ferguson, MO. It was the only thing on our minds. We couldn’t bring ourselves to think about anything else, so we decided to direct our fear, our revulsion, our heartbreak into a new track.

    The problem was that we’d defined our band — in interviews and to each other — as decidedly-not-an-activist-project. Diggs’s lyrics have been criticized for seeming apolitical, at least in comparison to what many listeners (perhaps rightly) expect to hear from an ‘experimental’ rap group. I have many times said (perhaps naïvely) that our politics lie in our structures, in our formal engagement with the rap genre. We love its conventions, its clichés, and we’re not above them. We see our participation in rap as something resembling an old punk flyer — an out-of-context collage of charged images with an fractured, contradictory, multiple point-of-view. I hope that our more dedicated listeners hear this and understand that we’re not interested in spoon-feeding them a position. At the same time, I’ve always assumed that they pretty much agree with us on most issues anyway. (We have yet to meet the misogynist, homophobic, white supremacist Clipping fan with an MBA and an NRA mebership).

    So what do we do when all we can think about, all we can feel, is a profound injustice — yet another young unarmed person of color is murdered by a police officer? How does a band, which overtly rejects affect and the emotions, address something that is, for its authors, a deeply felt, deeply affecting topic? Well, we don’t entirely know. But the fact is: there’s more truth in Diggs’s lyrics than we generally let on. “Inside Out” describes a drive-by shooting in Oakland, “Chain” is about three stick-ups. They are presented with a lot of detail and specificity (perhaps the result of personal experience). But at the same time, they represent archetypal scenarios within rap music. One trope we had yet to explore as Clipping was the anti-police rap — the lineage of Public Enemy, NWA and Paris, straight through The Coup, and all the way into the ‘stop snitching’ panic of the early 2000s. “Knees On The Ground” is a paradigmatic white-cop-kills-an-unarmed-black-kid-and-gets-away-with-it tale — a story that happens all the fucking time in the US. What we have learned — from our first hand experience in Oakland in 2009, and from the media coverage of Ferguson in 2014 — is that the second part of this story involves a police response better suited to a war zone than to an American city. Cops think they’re playing Call Of Duty when they’re supposed to be part of a community. If Ferguson were in Iraq, Obama would have sent in an airstrike already.

    This is the least obtuse Diggs’s lyrics will ever get. We’re embarrassed by the timeliness of this track. We do not intend to capitalize on what is, undoubtedly, a terrible tragedy. But journalists make think-pieces and we make songs. Writers write what they know, and this is what we know right fucking now.

    Anonymous asked: You do realise that humans are genetically, biologically, naturally omnivores, right? Humans are supposed to eat meat.

    Where is individual choice involved here? The arguments above are essentially worthless if a person still makes the individual choice to consume animal products. For some people (myself included) eating meat is very enjoyable. Then it comes down to the availability of consumable animal products, which no reasonable person can assume will cease in not just our society but any society. There isn’t much of an incentive not to consume animal products. 

    Dick you i will continue to eat the fuck outta animal meat, you know why? It’s called the fucking food chain. Get over it and kick rocks while you lay in a corner and cry over it….

    I love how me (nicely and respectfully) answering questions on my own blog has the power to make people like you guys defensive about your diet enough to reblog the post, and publicly defend why you eat meat, and that you won’t stop! If you’re doing nothing wrong, no reason do get defensive right? :) 

    PS. Eating meat is not a personal choice. You can’t pay for the inhumane exploitation, abuse and slaughter of another sentient being and call it “personal choice”.

    This is not personal choice (nor is it the “food chain”):

    Eating Vegan Is Efficient, Both Costly & Environmentally (Alternatively: Why Meat ISN’T Efficient)

    (x)

    Why is raising animals for food so inefficient?

    • 70% of grain and cereals grown in U.S. are fed to farmed animals
    • it requires 16 pounds of grain to produce 1 pound of meat

    What does eating meat have to do with people starving in other countries?

    • every ounce of water, grain and resources that goes towards an animal who will ultimately be slaughtered is an ounce of water or grain that could have gone to those who so desperately need it. a study published earlier this year in the journal Environmental Research Letters analyzed the world’s agriculture resource data and found that humans cutting meat from their diets could play a significant role in combating world hunger. According to the researchers, 36 percent of the total calories that come from crops are allocated to farm animal feed, but only 12 percent of those calories actually make it to people’s dinner plates. The researchers concluded that if all of the world’s crops were directly consumed by humans, there would be approximately 70 percent more food available, providing sustenance for an additional 4 billion additional people.

    Check out this article, in which the UN is urging a global shift towards a vegan diet -

    veganvibez:

    We’re not meant to eat meat, or even technically grains/starches. We as a human species are meant to thrive on a raw vegan diet, of fruits, veggies, and rarely nuts/seeds (specifically, on an 801010 ratio with 80% of our calories or more coming from carbohydrates, and 10% or less from fat and protein). Grains and starches cut up our intestinal tract like glass shards. However, it has been proven to still have beneficial properties to our health and can be eaten in a healthy diet. In general, whether it be cooked or raw, a low fat vegan diet is the healthiest and most natural on the planet. Meat however isn’t. Any amount of meat or animal product is too much. 

    If we were designed to eat meat like society tells us we are, we would be eating it raw. The whole “it’s what we’d eat in nature” debate goes down the toilet when we buy our pre-cut and cured meat at the supermarket, season it and cook it. Animals in nature who are meant to eat meat eat it raw, catch it themselves, kill it with their own claws/teeth, eat the blood and guts and fat, etc. We as humans don’t have any “claws”, nor can we bite into flesh with our teeny tiny teeth.

    Meat-eaters: don’t have skin pores and perspire through the tongue

    Herbivores: perspire through skin pores

    Humans: perspire through skin pores

    Meat-eaters: have sharp front teeth for tearing, with no flat molar teeth for grinding

    Herbivores: no sharp front teeth, but flat rear molars for grinding

    Humans: no sharp front teeth, but flat rear molars for grinding

    Meat-eaters: have intestinal tract that is only 3 times their body length so that rapidly decaying meat can pass through quickly

    Herbivores: have intestinal tract 10-12 times their body length.

    Humans: have intestinal tract 10-12 times their body length.

    Meat-eaters: have strong hydrochloric acid in stomach to digest meat

    Herbivores: have stomach acid that is 20 times weaker than that of a meat-eater

    Humans: have stomach acid that is 20 times weaker than that of a meat-eater

    Meat-eaters: salivary glands in mouth not needed to pre-digest grains and fruits.

    Herbivores: well-developed salivary glands which are necessary to pre-digest grains and fruits

    Humans: well-developed salivary glands, which are necessary to pre-digest, grains and fruits

    Meat-eaters: have acid saliva with no enzyme ptyalin to pre-digest grains

    Herbivores: have alkaline saliva with ptyalin to pre-digest grains

    Humans: have alkaline saliva with ptyalin to pre-digest grains

    Based on a chart by A.D. Andrews, Fit Food for Men, (Chicago: American Hygiene Society, 1970)

    Meat-eaters also synthesize vitamin c, while herbivores and humans do not and need to get it externally from their food.

    If We Were Meant to Eat Meat, Why Is It Killing Us?

    Carnivorous animals in the wild virtually never suffer from heart diseasecancerdiabetes, strokes, or obesity, ailments that are caused in humans in large part by the consumption of the saturated fat and cholesterol in meat.

    Excess Protein

    We consume twice as much protein as we need when we eat a meat-based diet, and this contributes to osteoporosis and kidney stones. Animal protein raises the acid level in our blood, causing calcium to be excreted from the bones to restore the blood’s natural pH balance. This calcium depletion leads to osteoporosis, and the excreted calcium ends up in the kidneys, where it can form kidney stones or even trigger kidney disease.

    Consuming animal protein has also been linked to cancer of the colon, breast, prostate, and pancreas. According to Dr. T. Colin Campbell, the director of the Cornell-China-Oxford Project on Nutrition, Health, and the Environment, “In the next ten years, one of the things you’re bound to hear is that animal protein … is one of the most toxic nutrients of all that can be considered.”

    Eating meat can also have negative consequences for stamina and sexual potency. One Danish study indicated that “Men peddling on a stationary bicycle until muscle failure lasted an average of 114 minutes on a mixed meat and vegetable diet, 57 minutes on a high-meat diet, and a whopping 167 minutes on a strict vegetarian diet.”9Besides having increased physical endurance, vegan men are also less likely to suffer from impotence.

    Food Poisoning

    Since we don’t have strong stomach acids like carnivores to kill all the bacteria in meat, dining on animal flesh can also give us food poisoning. According to the USDA, meat is the cause of 70 percent of foodborne illnesses in the United States because it’s often contaminated with dangerous bacteria like E. coli, listeria, and campylobacter. Every year in the United States alone, food poisoning sickens over 75 million people and kills more than 5,000.

    Dr. William C. Roberts, M.D., editor of the authoritative American Journal of Cardiology, sums it up this way: “[A]lthough we think we are one and we act as if we are one, human beings are not natural carnivores. When we kill animals to eat them, they end up killing us because their flesh, which contains cholesterol and saturated fat, was never intended for human beings, who are natural herbivores.” Learn more about how meat damages human health.

    Human Evolution and the Rise of Meat-Heavy Diets

    If it’s so unhealthy and unnatural for humans to eat meat, why did our ancestors sometimes turn to flesh for sustenance?

    During most of our evolutionary history, we were largely vegetarian. Plant foods like potatoes made up the bulk of our ancestors’ diet. The more frequent addition of modest amounts of meat to the early human diet came with the discovery of fire, which allowed us to lower the risk of being sickened or killed by parasites in meat. This practice did not turn our ancestors into carnivores but rather allowed early humans to survive in periods when plant foods were unavailable.

    All nutrients needed for humans can and should be gotten from a plant-based diet, as it is not only a better source, but is pure. When you get your nutrients through a rotting animal carcus you have put these essential nutrients through a filter of an animals body and digestive tract. 

    For the protein argument, our protein needs as humans are very low. We only need 2.5% of our daily calories from protein, and with sufficient plant-based calories, this is easily attainable. There is no such thing as protein deficiency, only calorie deficiency which obviously lacks many things (protein being one of them, but not the only thing that’s lacking). 

    As for dairy, since it’s so acidic in the body (and your body is an efficient machine at trying to keep you in an alkaline state) it leeches calcium from your bones to neutralize the acidity, giving you problems like osteoporosis  It’s a terrible source of calcium, and is filled with puss. 

    As for eggs, it’s high in cholesterol and leads to many health problems, health isn’t another species period! 

    Honey: bee vomit, acidic in the body. 

    I hope this helps you understand better! xx

    "A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate changea UN report said today.

    As the global population surges towards a predicted 9.1 billion people by 2050, western tastes for diets rich in meat and dairy products are unsustainable, says the report fromUnited Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP)international panel of sustainable resource management.”

    So, in short, if the planet begins to move towards a vegan diet, our planet would last much longer, there would be better food opportunities for people who don’t get enough, there would be less damage done to the environment, there would be less disease, and maybe the other sentient beings on this planet will finally be treated with the respect they deserve.
