While L.A. may seem like the organic and raw food hub in the U.S., not every part of the city fits that description.
In some inner city and African-American communities, for example, fast food restaurants on every corner may outnumber the number of outfits Paris Hilton has for her dogs.
With diseases like diabetes and abdominal obesity hitting the African-American community hard, the outlook may be even more grimmer.
But all is not lost. Recently, the city has seen numerous black owned vegetarian and vegan restaurants open and several African-American celebrities, such as Erykah Badu, Russell Simmons, and Kevin Eubanks have teamed up with PETA to get the veg word out.
The most recent testimony is by retired basketball player John Salley. Go here to view his video. And if you live in southern Cali or are visiting, be sure to give your support and visit some of the black owned vegan restaurants, such as Vegan Village Café, Stuff I Eat, and Rahel’s.
