Vegan Blogger Gets Beaten Up By Bouncer At Dandelion Market … Or, What It Feels Like To Be a Victim of Racism and Bigotry in Charlotte, NC

So I may be a British woman living in England but I will stand up for people the world over when they are discriminated against and assaulted for the simple “crime” of looking and being different.

back 1 1211133:30 PM :  You’re let off of work early so everyone has time to prepare for the company Christmas party at Dandelion Market in Charlotte, NC.  You’re feeling excited – you haven’t been uptown or had an opportunity to dress up for awhile.  You take a shower, wash your hair, and redo your makeup.  You even use eyeshadow!  You choose a knee length navy blue dress with a bit of decolletage, the 8-foot strand of pearls your fiance gave you, doubled four times, and the pearl earring studs your mother gave you.  OK, it’s not exactly vegan – but you had this jewelry before you were vegan, and being a practical vegan you love and wear the h*ll out of it.

You dont have to believe me I understand, but please ask the question why havent the police gotten a warrant, or a lawyer pounced on this, of even her boss make a fuss about this? If her story was all truth at least one of those would have happened right? Especially if there are tapes that the police can legally have access to regardless of it being private property.
