A TikTok video that has subsequently gone viral on Twitter about racism allegedly inherent in meat consumption could be a bizarre parody of wokeism. Either way, the content is in extremely poor taste, as it were. It has also prompted widespread ridicule on social media.
In answering a question that no one asked, a young woman explains in the one-minute video how eating meat is racist, with a odd prologue in which she opines that “looks like we’ve got an oppressor on our hands.”
The woman claims, among other things, that “when you go to the store and buy a piece of meat as a white person, you are actively taking away a piece of meat that could be being enjoyed by survivor of ancestral slavery,” recalling that slaves were only permitted to eat unwanted scraps.
Meat-eating is also anti-Semitic as well as racist, the woman continues.
Jews imprisoned in concentration camps were denied meat and were forced onto a potato soup diet, she says.
With a special mention of brisket, she concludes that “Now, Jewish survivors eat a lot of meat…just let them have that. Stop appropriating everything.”

It appears that the video may have initially been shared by a conservative Twitter user with the handle @italia_patriot who captioned it “Parents, you need to remove your kids from libtard schools asap!!!”
The Twitter jury is still out as to whether this video is an ill-advised, if not wholly offensive, prank, however. Here is a sampling:
Her delivery, as well as the unadulterated absurdity of what she's saying, indicates to me that it must be a parody.
Please let it be a parody.

I want to believe it’s fake, but I am nearly certain it isn’t.

I grant you dispensation on eating meat without any guilt that you are somehow taking away my food.
As far as non-kosher meat goes, knock yourselves out.

Phew, as a jewish person, I was worried I wasn’t able to eat meat anymore. But seriously…what? This girl has issues if she connects eating meat with racism

How on earth did society get to a stage where these utter morons can spout such garbage. “Eating meat is racist” . I always thought people died if their brains were removed!!

I am glad I am a 50yo because by the time her generation have ruined absolutely everything with their woke nonsense I will hopefully be dead. Never mind the climate change crisis, the biggest danger to humanity is the stupidity of the younger generations

Wherever she was educated, she should ask for a refund.

Im going with parody. But please god let me be right, because some of the shit I see spouted across SM really does make you doubt your own judgement on this stuff more and more. Let’s face it, who would be even mildly surprised if she wasn’t a parody and actually thought this? 🙈

This is the logical conclusion of the critical race theory curriculums: eating meat is racist.
Behold, the intellectual bankruptcy of the next generation. We are purposely making people stupider. https://t.co/IdslZqF1i9

It’s unknown if this person is a vegan, but parenthetically, vegans often have some pretty aggressive outreach on social media platforms. Again, that may be inapplicable in this case.
