my point about ironic fans of rap music is why I can’t stand those shitty acoustic white ppl covers of rap songs
because you think it’s funny to juxtapose your whiteness with “ratchet” rap lyrics to show how “hilarious” you think the lyrics are when you try to put it in the context of an art form you find more legitimate and superior
you are completely stripping the music of it’s context and butchering it for your own amusement I can’t stand it
As there is no inherently valid value or meaning, all value and meaning is created. However, my ethics are not arbitrary, for they are based on reason and not whim.
There are 3 categories in my system of ethical reasoning. There are ‘sapient beings’, ‘sentient beings’, and ‘non-sentient things’. You’ll note that there is no category specific to ‘humans’, ‘non-human animals’, or ‘kingdom animalia’.
For the sake of clarity, I’ll define the terms ‘sentient’ and ‘sapient’ as used here:
- sentient — having the ability to feel, perceive, or be conscious, or to experience subjectivity.
- sapient — able to act with appropriate judgement.
Now that the categories are clear, here are the axioms:
- Non-sentient things are not themselves worthy of ethical consideration.
- All sentient beings are worthy of ethical consideration.
- All sapient beings, which are a subset of sentient beings, are ethically culpable to the degree they are able to reason and act ethically.
What matters in this ethical system is consciousness, not pain. I am convinced of the consciousness of animals, including that of fish, but not of plants’, which I therefore categorize as non-sentient. My culpability is limited by my inability to understand an entity as sentient or non-sentient, as well as my circumstances.
My vegan principle can be summed up thusly:
Avoid harm — What follows from that is abstinence from exploiting others insofar as one is able to. If it is not necessary to cause harm to another, one should not. In accordance with this, consent is of central importance. It is generally not necessary to use animal products, so it is generally unethical to use them.
Drawing from my vegan principle, my central ethical principle:
Oppose avoidable harm — From that follows a spectre — THE SPECTRE OF COMMUNISM!

Sure, when you stop reproducing white supremacist dynamics. Judging by your comments here and your “response” to criticism, it’s not happening.
I hate when people assume a person of color is just overreacting to well-intentioned white people. Believe it or not, white people CAN be at fault.
